Recipe: Patriotic Pretzels

A microwave and just a few ingredients are all you need for a patriotic party snack.

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:

  1. Place pretzel snaps on a paper plate and top each with a candy melt.
  2. 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.
  3. Press one white mini M&M’s logo-side down onto the center of each white-chocolate melt.
  4. 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!
