Butterfly Pretzel Snack
Gather up the ingredients below to get started on this simple treat!
Ingredients needed for this Butterfly Pretzel Snack
- 24 hard pretzels
- 15-20 purple candy melts
- 2 tbsps nonpareils
- ½ cup yellow candy melts
- 6 pretzel sticks
How to make this Butterfly Pretzel Snack
Preheat oven to 200 degrees F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and line up the 24 pretzels.
Place purple candy melts in a plastic sandwich bag and use a meat pounder or rolling pin to crush the candy melts into small bits.
Add broken candy melts into the cavities of each pretzel.
Bake for 2-3 minutes.
Remove from oven and use a toothpick to evenly spread the melted candy melts in each of the pretzel’s cavities. Sprinkle with nonpareils.
Allow the pretzels to set, about 20 minutes.
Line a separate pan with wax paper.
Place yellow candy melts into a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 30-second intervals, mixing between each interval, until completely melted.
Break each pretzel stick in half and dip each one in melted candy.
Place coated pretzel stick on wax paper and attach 2 purple pretzels on either side.
Repeat for every pretzel stick.
Allow to set. Serve and enjoy!
How do you store these simple pretzel snacks?
Storing them in an airtight container or closed bag is important. The air will make the pretzels go stale very quickly so make certain that you keep them sealed when stored. This will ensure that they’ll be fresh and delicious for several days after making them.
