Recipe: Patriotic Pretzels

With just a little parental supervision, this easy recipe for patriotic pretzel bites will be fun to make and even more fun to snack on.


What you need:

Red, White and blue mini M&M’s

Pretzel snaps (square pretzels)

White Wilton candy melts

Paper Plate


What to do:

Place pretzel snaps on a paper plate and top each with a candy melt.

Heat in microwave for 40-50 seconds. This is trial and error. Your goal is to have the candy melt so that it is just soft enough to press your red, white and blue mini M&M’s into it.

Press one white mini M&M’s candy piece logo-side down onto the center of each white-chocolate melt.

Follow by placing your red and blue mini M&M’s logo-side down in a circle around the white ones. It should take about six candies per pretzel snap to achieve this.

Save this recipe for any holiday and switch out the colors appropriately. Enjoy!
