Flower Pretzel Bites

I’m always on the lookout for something cute to make for Easter. Like deviled pastel eggs. When I came across these flower pretzel bites I quickly added the three ingredients (!) to the grocery store list on my phone. Now, to make a batch of these you’re going to need some time, but it’s worth it. And they’re very fun to make too.

I mixed it up. Some yellow petals. A few pink. Some blue. Go crazy. And they don’t have to be perfect. What you end up with are pretty, crunchy, chocolately single-bite morsels of happiness!
Flower Pretzel BitesIf you’re super duper picky, make sure you place the candies so that the ‘m’ is turned down.

Another favorite Easter-time treat of mine is my Peeps-stuffed Oreos. Yes. Peep-stuffed Oreos. Boom. At Christmas time I make a treat similar to these flower pretzel bites, reindeer noses.

Instructions

  • First thing you want to do is put the ingredients into 3 different bowls, leaving out any broken pretzels, chocolates or candies.

Working in batches:

  • Top the pretzels with the white chocolate melts and place on a microwave safe plate. Microwave on 50% (I found that the defrost setting also works well) until the chocolates are melted.
  • Carefully remove the plate (it might be hot!).
  • Place a single M&M in the center of each melt and press it down just slightly. Add 6-7 more candies around the edges.
  • Place the plate into the fridge until the candies are set. You can also leave them out at room temperature to set, but they'll take a little longer to do so.

Reindeer Noses

Oh yummy! Fun-to-eat (and make!) Reindeer noses make for great holiday treats! We love making a big ole batch of ‘noses’ and sharing them with Anita’s co-workers. How can you make these without smiling? How can you eat them without smiling? You can’t! They’re great! Creamy chocolate, crunchy sweet M&Ms and salty pretzels. The perfect combination!Reindeer Noses

You can also make these reindeer noses with Hershey’s Kisses instead of Rolos, but you might have to keep them in the oven a little longer so that the chocolate melts enough.

For Easter, make my flower pretzel bites. Just as easy and guaranteed to be a crowd-pleaser.
