Spring Flower Pretzel Bites

Some days you just need something that makes you smile. For me, this is usually in the form of food (is that bad). That is why I love these Spring Flower Pretzel Bites – the sweet and salty combination is my thing!

All you need is three simple ingredients and you are on your way to, not only, a delicious dessert, but it is beyond adorable. You know how much I love cute food!

We love easy desserts. Be sure to try some of our other favorites like this amazing Brownie Batter Dip or Banana Cream Pie Dip. These are so easy to make and great to serve with a crowd!

Ingredients

  • Butter Snap Pretzels – these are the square criss-cross pretzels.
  • White Candy Melts – I used the Ghiradelli brand, they are larger than the Wilton brand. You want them to cover the pretzel!
  • Easter M&M’s – feel free to get creative with the colors. You can really make these for any holiday (the Valentine’s Day M&Ms are really cute on the pretzels as well!) Spring Flower Pretzel Bites ingredients

Tools I love – these are some of my must have kitchen gadgets for Food Crafting!

  • Silicon Baking Liner – I cannot stress enough how much you need these!
  • Decorating Tweezers – if you use sprinkles and candy to decorate, these are a must. Put those little suckers right where you want them

Another great thing about these yummy treats is that you can make them before you need them and store them until ready to eat! Just store them in an airtight container and they should stay good for quite some time!

Want to make a nice little Easter gift for friends and family (or maybe just a Spring treat) – grab some of these cellophane gift baggies to put them in and tie with a pretty ribbon.

This will make a super cute little gift!

This 3-ingredient sweet and salty dessert will be your new favorite when you need a little spring in your day!
Prep Time 20 mins
Total Time 20 mins

Ingredients
  

  • Butter Snap Pretzels
  • White Candy Melts
  • Pastel M&M's

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 225 degrees (see below for microwave instructions)
  • Line a baking sheet with either parchment paper or a silicon baking liner
  • Place the butter snap pretzels in rows on the baking sheet
  • Put one candy melt on top of each pretzel
  • Warm in oven for 2-3 minutes - you don't want them melted, just softened.
    (you can also put them on a paper plate and warm them in the microwave for about 55 seconds - don't over cook them, just until soft. All microwaves heat differently so experiment with 1 or 2 to start)
  • Quickly place one M& M in the center and surround it by 6 "petals". Gently press them down to "secure" them in the candy (if you are anything like me, it would drive me crazy to mess up these adorable flowers with a big "M", so place the M&M's "M" side down!
  • Let cool and serve. (you can speed up the cooling time by placing them in the refrigerator for a few minutes)
  • Store in an airtight container - enjoy!

Jenn's Notes

Tip: Keep the "M" side facing down!

    Love these! I found it easier to place the M&Ms if I melted the chocolate in the oven instead of the microwave. I had issues with the M&Ms cracking when I placed them on the hot melted chocolate (both microwave and oven methods). Once they cooled a bit I didn’t have that problem. Thanks for sharing!

    These are adorable! Tried to make them today. I bought the Merkens White chocolate wafers. I could not get them to melt properly. Tried the oven and microwave. I ended up melting the chocolate down and spread it on the pretzel. Definitely messier. Are the candy melts you used real chocolate?

    I made them, and can’t believe how cute they turned out! I made the mistake of melting 88 at one time. I had to remelt half-way through, but candy melted again. I will definitely make again!

    I didn’t have the wafers but I had a couple of Ghirardelli white chocolate baking bars. It wasn’t easy to make flier with square chocolate but they did come out great.

    I made these cute little flowers for Easter. I actually didn’t care this time if the M&M’s showed They turned out great! I also made some with some Peanut butter chips I had. I placed 4 chips on each pretzel and the M&M’s actually held on better than the melting wafers.

    These were SOO adorable! I used the Caramel M&M’s as the centers and they were quite the treat. I’m probably going to make these for a party later…
