DIY Mummy Pretzels

It’s Halloween party time at school!  The dreaded e-mail/text chain from the class mom that reminds you to bring something in and you are yet again reminded that you don’t have time (or the mental capacity) to be “that mom”.  Don’t worry – I got you covered mama!  The easiest Halloween snack that is nut free and super easy to make that will make you look like you are actually a crafty mom with time on your hands to do this kind of stuff!  It takes no time at all and the kids can even help out ( just remind them not to lick their fingers).
