Halloween Decorated Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Pretzel Granola Bars! These are great for snacks, breakfast and Halloween parties! Use black and orange chocolate chip morsels to make them festive looking!
While walking around the Halloween section at Target I came across these festive chocolate morsels. They are Nestle Toll House Semi-Sweet Chocolate and Orange Morsels. I threw them immediately in my buggy, not really knowing what I was going to make with them, but how could I turn them down?
I love Halloween because it means I can wear black and orange every single day. I wore this last week, but I’m going to be honest and tell you that the pumpkin socks stick around for 12 months. There’s no putting away Halloween socks, wear them every single day! You will make someone smile on the subway who’s having a bad day.
We love Granola Bars in our house and some of our favorite treats are the Peanut Butter Pretzel Chocolate Chip Granola Bars and Regular Chocolate Chip Granola Bars. These Granola Bars are super cute, not only because of the black and orange morsels, but because they have some chocolate sprinkles added on top as well. These would be a hit with kids, adults, at parties, or if you’re just like us – enjoy them for dessert.
Hope you enjoy these Granola Bars, but eat them quick or Ghost and Pumpkin are going to swoop in and steal them. 🙂
