Bat Wing Treats - Chocolate Pretzels - 52 Snacks for Children's Church

Pin It Now!

Another week, another snack for our Children's Church hour.

This week, fall (and Halloween) is in the air.  So, why not start serving up Halloween themed snacks.

PLUS, I'll be honest, the day before I had a BBQ party with 20 or so of my closest friends.  Stuffed pork chops and a half dozen sides, desserts and appetizers.  Honestly, as much as I look forward to making kid friendly treats for the next year, this particular Sunday morning, I was looking for fast, easy and ... let's stick with easy.

Only a few ingredients

Very little cooking, low enough temperatures that give or take a few minutes, time in the overn doesn't really matter.

Fun to eat for the kids and cute as a button!

A hit for everyone (me included)

 OK... Here's what I did...

Bat Wing Treats - Chocolate Pretzels

  • 48 Small Pretzels
  • 24 Chocolate Melting discs
  • 48 Small White Chocolate Chips
Cooking Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees
  2. Arrange pretzels on wax paper (on top of a tray makes it easier to move later) in pairs so that they are just touching each other.
  3. carefully place a chocolate melting disc in the center between the two "wings" so that when melted it will hold the wings together.
  4. Bake for about 10 minutes, until the chocolate disc has gotten soft and just started to melt into the pretzels
  5. Remove from oven and carefully place two white "eyes" into the melted chocolate.
  6. Chill for an hour and serve the little kiddies and watch them ENJOY!!!

Big PotLuck Gathering
This recipe has been added to my growing list of "52 Church PotLuck Dishes"!

A list of something NEW worthy of being shown off at a neighborhood BYODish (Bring Your Own Dish) Party, a Family special occasion dinner, Any Big Holiday Gathering or of course that glorious day when you bring a dish to share with your Church family...

Ages ago, literally almost a half century ago I was listening to our pastor talking about a PotLuck Dinner. It happened to be scheduled around a church work day when we were expected to weed, polish and do general cleaning and maintenance around the church (you know, back in the day when there were no no-wax floors and church pews smelled of Old English furniture polish). I am of course paraphrasing, but as I recall the pastor said,

"A potluck, like a church requires work. At a potluck everyone is expected to contribute.. At a church no one should come empty handed and no one should leave unfed".
I will confess that in my youth I brought more store bought plastic spoons and forks than I ever brought covered dishes and crock pots of fresh made love and caring delights. But now that I have become a hobbyist cook, I occasionally am reminded of those days and people from my youth. I reminded and I do wish that I could drop a dish of some new creation on those old tables at my fondly remembered Liberty Baptist Church.  Tables covered with newspapers and loaded with God's bounty prepared with love and caring... Enjoy
