Ghostly Tumbleweed Treats!

This recipe is an installment of my Halloween fanfare and excitement.  I enjoy creating and sharing fun and tasty treats with festive themes and names, especially around this time of year.  The ingredients are simple and all the flavor bases are covered sweet, salty, chocolaty, chewy and crunchy.  I had a surplus of items that needed a purpose and  I came up with a victory for Team Sweets!  I got a good amount of positive feedback from these puppies and my youngest daughter Bronwyn really liked them.  Omit the Halloween themed decorations and name and this recipe will fit into any other time of year or function just fine!
6 c. thin pretzel sticks
4 c. miniature marshmallows
1/2 c. walnuts, chopped
1/2 c. chocolate chips
3 tbsp. margarine
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
Melt butter in large vessel over medium heat.
Once small bubbles start to form, add marshmallows.
Once melted, add remaining ingredients in a folding fashion to coat and distribute evenly.
Working quickly, form into balls about the size of a golf ball.
Place on baking sheet to set.
Refrigerate or place in freezer for about 5 minutes to set completely.
Makes 24 treats.
