These festive Christmas Flower Pretzel Bites are a good example of this versatility! You’ll definitely want to add these to your holiday baking list this year.
How to Make Christmas Flower Pretzel Bites
You will need:
To make these lovely Christmas Flower Pretzel Bites we used the special Christmas Blend bag of M&M’s. The Christmas M&M’s usually start being available in stores after Halloween and they have only red and green M&M’s in the bag.
We like to use the square Pretzel Snaps when making Pretzel Bites but you can also use the regular mini pretzels. First, place 7-8 Pretzel Snaps on a paper plate. Cover the pretzels with a Wilton Candy Melt. Place the paper plate in the microwave and heat for approximately 45-50 seconds. The exact timing will take a bit of trial and error. You want the candy melts to be melted enough to press the M&M’s into, but not so melted that the candy melt loses its’ shape. In the picture above you can see that the candy melts have a sheen to them – this is what they look like when they are the melted the perfect amount. The exact time in the microwave will depend on how many pretzel/candy’s you do at one time, how powerful your microwave is, the type of pretzels you are using, etc. For us, 7-8 pretzels snaps take 50 seconds to melt to the right consistency.
The Christmas Flower Pretzel Bites are very easy to assemble. Start by pressing an M&M down in the center of the melted candy melt. Now create the flower petals with contrasting colored M&M’s – we used six M&M’s for the petals. And remember to place the “M” side down!
We created coordinated colored versions of the Harvest Flower Pretzel Bites – Red with a Green center and Green with a Red center.
These Christmas Flower Pretzel Bites are so pretty and festive. And boy do they taste great.
