Pretzel rods encased in chocolate and drizzled with candy coating create spooky fingers.
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Heavy Whipping Cream
1 Half Stick (1/4 cup) Land O Lakes® Butter
2 (1-ounce) squares unsweetened baking chocolate, chopped
1 teaspoon vanilla
24 (7-inch) thick pretzel rods
6 ounces chocolate-flavored candy coating, chopped
Brown decorator jimmies
24 whole almonds
Place large sheet of aluminum foil onto flat surface. Butter foil or spray with no-stick cooking spray.
Combine sugar, corn syrup, whipping cream and butter in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, 4-6 minutes or until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat to medium; continue cooking, stirring occasionally, 20-25 minutes or until candy thermometer reaches 240°F or small amount of mixture dropped into ice water forms a soft pliable ball.
Remove from heat. Add baking chocolate and vanilla; stir until chocolate is melted.
Pour chocolate mixture into 2-cup glass measuring cup or bowl. Dip each pretzel rod 2/3 into mixture, spreading chocolate to cover. Let excess drip back into cup. Place pretzels onto prepared foil, rotating if desired, for an even coating. Let stand until set.
Place candy coating in bowl. Microwave 1 minute; stir. Continue microwaving, stirring every 15 seconds, 1-2 minutes or until melted.
Work with 1 pretzel at a time. Using fork, drizzle melted candy coating over chocolate. Immediately sprinkle with brown decorator jimmies. Dip end of 1 almond in melted coating; place on top of pretzel. Stand pretzel up in short glass or place onto foil. Repeat with remaining pretzels; let stand until coating is set.
