We have not met one person who does not love our pretzel bites. We love that they can be decorated for any occasion. These Harvest Flower Pretzel Bites are perfect for any Halloween or Thanksgiving party or celebration.
How to Make Harvest Flower Pretzel Bites
You will need:
For the Harvest Flower Pretzel Bites we used the special Harvest Blend bag of M&M’s and some Orange M&M’s from a regular bag. The Harvest M&M’s usually start being available in stores around mid-September and we’ve seen them all the way through Thanksgiving. The Harvest colored M&M’s have a special gold color and a darker red and brown.
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 Harvest 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 – Dark Brown with a Gold center, Orange with a Gold center, Dark Red with a Gold Center and Orange with a Brown Center.
These Harvest Flower Pretzel Bites are a great snack for Fall, Halloween or Thanksgiving. 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 on your dessert table!
