Pretzel bites are delicious and are a really great treat for your holiday dessert table. We especially love that they can be decorated for any occasion. These Holiday Poinsettia Pretzel Bites are perfect for any Christmas or New Year’s party or celebration.
How to Make Holiday Poinsettia Pretzel Bites
You will need:
- Pretzel Snaps
- Wilton Bright White Candy Melts
- Holiday Blend M&M Candies (Peppermint or Mint)
For the Holiday Poinsettia Pretzel Bites we used the special Holiday Blend bag of M&M’s, both the Peppermint and the Holiday Mint bags have white M&M’s. The Holiday M&M’s usually start being available in stores when the Christmas stuff goes up after Halloween. You can also get a bag of white M&M’s at party stores like Party City and online on Amazon.
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 white 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 Holiday Poinsettia Pretzel Bites – Red with a White center, and White with a Red Center.
These Holiday Poinsettia Pretzel Bites are a great snack for the Holidays. 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!
