Guys, I have to share these incredibly cute flower candies and pretzel rods with you right now!
They’re the perfect simple thing to whip up for your next party, event or baby shower. All you need is a few minutes and ingredients, but they look so great when you’re done!
TO MAKE YOUR OWN AUTUMN PRETZEL FLOWERS
HOW TO ASSEMBLE THE AUTUMN PRETZEL FLOWERS (makes 2 dozen)
– Line a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper. Set aside.
– Separate a bag of Harvest M&M’s by color. You should have red, brown and yellow pieces. Add orange pieces from a regular bag.
– On a microwave-safe plate, place 12 waffle pretzels on the plate, at least 1 inch apart from each other.
– Place one Wilton dark cocoa melt in the middle of each pretzel.
– Microwave for 30 seconds.
– While the pretzel is still hot, place a yellow M&M in the center of the melted chocolate. Take 6 red M&M’s and gently press into the melted chocolate all around the yellow M&M to resemble petals.
– Place on the baking sheet to set for at least 15 minutes.
– Repeat with any color combinations you like for the 5 remaining pretzels.
– Repeat step 3-7 again to make 12 additional pretzel flowers (24 total).
