We love Christmas. We love Disney. We love Pretzel Bites. So we were thrilled when we came up with the idea to Christmas-tize our Mickey Mouse Pretzel Bites. Now we love our Christmas Mickey Mouse Pretzel Bites too! There is always room on a dessert table for these sweet and salty treats and these adorable Holiday versions will be a welcome addition to our Christmas Baking List this year.
How to Make Christmas Mickey Mouse Pretzel Bites
You will need:
You will need two sizes of M&M’s to make these adorable Christmas Mickey Mouse Pretzel Bites – regular sized M&M’s and M&M Mini’s. You can find the Holiday Mix M&M’s (with only Red and Green M&M’s) in stores just after Halloween. If you can’t find the Holiday mix you can always pull the Red and Green M&M’s out of a regular bag of M&M’s but you’ll need a two bags depending on how many Christmas Mickey Mouse Pretzel Bites you are making.
We always use Pretzel Snaps to make our pretzel bites. We like the visual contrast between the square pretzel and the round candy on top but you can definitely make these Christmas Mickey Mouse Pretzel Bites with regular miniature pretzels. Start with a handful of pretzels on a paper plate.
Now add the Wilton Bright White Candy Melt. We cut off the swirl on the top so the candy melt will lay flat on the pretzel. Then we place the bottom side up so you have a flat, even surface for your Mickey Mouse head. Stick the plate of pretzels in the microwave for approximately 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. The candy melts have a sheen to them 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.
Now take a red regular sized M&M and place it towards the bottom of the softened Candy Melt as shown in the picture above. Remember to place the “M” side down! Now use two red “mini” M&M’s as Mickey’s ears.
That’s all there is to it. It couldn’t be easier! Aren’t they adorable?
Repeat the process in both Red and Green … super Christmas-y!
These Christmas Mickey Mouse Pretzel Bites are delicious. The salty pretzel, the sweet candy melt and the yummy chocolate crunch from the M&M’s … perfection!
These Christmas Mickey Mouse Pretzel Bites will be a hit at your Holiday Party this year. They are so easy to make, so adorable and so tasty! Merry Christmas from our family to yours!
