We first made these pretzel bites for Easter. They are so cute and simple to make that we decided to branch out and make them for other holidays. The best part about these Halloween Flower Pretzel Bites is that they last forever in an airtight container, but who are we kidding these Halloween treats will long gone as soon as you put them out for your family to enjoy.
How to Make Halloween Flower Pretzel Bites
You will need:
- Pretzel Snaps
- Wilton Dark Cocoa Candy Melts
- M&M Candies in Dark Brown and Orange
For the Halloween Flower Pretzel Bites we used Orange and Dark Brown M&M’s. You can find these colors of M&M’s in a regular bag of M&M’s. There is always a random number of each color of M&M in any particular bag so depending on how many pretzel bites you are planning to make you might need to buy two bags of M&M’s or one of those large “family-sized” bags to get enough of each of the two colors.
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 the the dark cocoa 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 Halloween 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 Halloween Flower Pretzel Bites – Dark Brown with Orange Petals and Orange with Dark Brown Petals. So very Halloween-y!
These Halloween Flower Pretzel Bites are a great Halloween snack. Pretzel Bites are always a big hit at any party we give. They are both unique and delicious and your guests will be gobbling them up off the plate at your Halloween Party!
