Making these dipped pretzels takes a little bit of time, but is super easy. Here’s what you need…

  • Pretzel Rods
  • Candy Melts (I used Wilton melts in turquoise, bright pink, orange and vibrant green)
  • Candy Eyes (I used two different sizes-you can find these at Michaels)

Step 1: One color at a time, melt your candy melts in the microwave, following package instructions. I add a bit (about a teaspoon) of vegetable oil to make the melts smoother and a bit thinner.

Step 2: Dip your pretzel rods, and lay on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Before the candy hardens, decorate with your candy eyes. Repeat for each color, washing your mug or bowl between colors.

I usually put mine in the refrigerator for a few minutes to speed up the hardening process.
