How to Make Christmas Pretzels
You will need:
- Rold Gold Pretzels – Thins
- Rold gold Pretzels – Tiny Twists
- Wilton Candy Melts – Red
- Wilton Candy Melts – Bright White
- Wilton Candy Melts – Dark Green
- Wilton Candy Melts – Vibrant Green
- Parchment Paper
We used both regular sized and mini sized pretzels for our Christmas Pretzels to shake things up a bit but you can you just one size. We made 18 pretzels of each color, using 1/3 regular sized pretzels and 2/3 mini pretzels.
We used 50 Red Candy Melts to cover 18 pretzels. We placed them on a piece of parchment paper and melted them in the microwave. We started at 40 seconds, stirred them and then microwaved them again in 10 second increments until the candy melts were fully melted. Then we placed a pretzel in the melted candy mixture and used a fork to cover the top area of the pretzel. When the pretzel was completely covered, we placed the candy covered pretzel on a piece of wax or parchment paper to dry.
Finally, we drizzled red candy melts on the Christmas Pretzels for decoration. To do this, we melted 15 Wilton Red Candy Melts in a Ziploc bag. Once melted, we cut the tip off the bag and drizzled the candy over the pretzels. Make sure you only cut the very very tip of the bag. You only want a small hole to give yourself more control over the drizzle. Once the drizzle has hardened you can up the drizzle on the outside and inside of the pretzels with your fingers.
Repeat the process with Wilton Bright White Candy Melts. We used 50 candy melts for covering the pretzels and 15 candy melts in a plastic bag for the candy melt drizzle.
Repeat the process for the Green Pretzels . We used a combination of 25 Green and 25 Vibrant Green Candy Melts to cover 18 pretzels. This gave us a really pretty Christmas Green color.
