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, chocolatey single-bite morsels of happiness! And if you’re super duper picky, make sure you place the candies so that the ‘m’ is turned down.
Pastel M&Ms can be hard to find. The closer to Easter it is the easier they are to locate. You can substitute other types of chocolate candies if you want. Just try to find some with lighter, Easter-like colors. Make sure they are not really soft as they’ll melt when they hit the melted chocolate. You want something with a bit of a shell.
Flower Pretzel Bites
- 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.
