Learning a new cooking technique: Soft Pretzels (& other Halloween goodies)

I've always wanted to learn how to make pretzels but it always seemed like so much work so I never ventured.

I've been busy since last night making all kinds of "scary" goodies for a Halloween party tonight.

Ladies fingers (cookies) in a black bucket is the first thing I made. They didn't turn out exactly the way I had envisioned but Ryan thinks they're cool.

Then late last night I made "Eggs of Newt" spiked punch. It's so good & you even get a surprise in your glass!

This morning I woke up and decided not to make "bat" wings but instead to make small homemade soft pretzels into Monster Toes that I'll serve with mustard. Not knowing what I was doing, I found a recipe on Martha Stewart's website. And to my surprise, it wasn't hard at all! They may not look all that great, but they are oh so yummy!

There are so many things I'd like to learn how to proud I learned one today.
