St. Patrick’s Pretzel Snacks
All you need to do to get started is to gather up all the simple ingredients listed below!
Supplies needed to make these St. Patrick’s Pretzel Snacks
- 24 hard pretzels
- 24 white candy melts
- 2-3 oz. green rolling fondant
Directions for making these delicious St. Patrick’s Pretzel Snacks
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Spread out 24 pretzels on the lined baking sheet, placing one candy melt on each pretzel. Set aside.
To shape a St. Patrick’s clover out of fondant, do the following: roll out 6 spheres, about 1/4 of an inch thick.
Take two spheres and press them together, giving them a point on one end. This will create a heart shape. Repeat for the other 2 pairs of spheres.
Press the three fondant hearts together, with one in the center and the other two on the side, slightly angled.
Repeat 24 times to have enough for your two dozen pretzels.
Roll out 24 additional ¼ inch fondant spheres, then roll them into little stubs.
Set aside all of the fondant shapes while the pretzels bake.
Heat oven to 170 degrees F.
Place pan of pretzels and white candy melts into the oven and bake for 2 minutes.
While the white candy melts are still warm, gently add a fondant clover on top, followed by a green fondant stub (it will act as your clover’s stem). Repeat for each pretzel.
Allow the pretzel snacks to set for at least 20 minutes.
Serve and enjoy!
(Make certain to store them in a sealed bag or container or the pretzels will dry out and become soggy and soft very quickly! If you can’t eat them all right away, you can even put them in your freezer for a short amount of time, too.)
