Candy Pretzel Flowers
To make candy pretzel flowers, you will need the following supplies:
- Pretzel sticks
- Wax paper
- Ziplock baggie
- Microwave safe bowl
- Cupid’s Message M&M’s (they’re larger than regular M&M’s)
- Candy Quik (found in the baking isle)
- Pez candies
- Sweet Tarts Hearts
Watch how you assemble the candies to make pretzel flowers!
- Melt the Candy Quik in a microwave safe bowl in 30 second intervals, stirring until completely melted.
- Pour the melted Candy Quick in a baggie. Place the baggie over a cup to help keep the baggie opened for pouring!
- Lay out a piece of wax paper.
- Cut the corner of the baggie and make a small circle with the melted Candy Quick on the wax paper. Place an M&M on top:
- Put a pretzel stick at the bottom for the flowers stem.
- Use colorful Pez candies to create flower petals.
- Put a little more melted Candy Quik on the edge of a candy heart (as seen in the video) and place 2 on either side of the pretzel stick for the flowers leaves.
- Let dry for at least 10 minutes.
Aren’t they the cutest? As the Candy Quik dries, it hardens, keeping everything held together.
Nibble on the petals, the leaves, and then the chocolate center. After that, crunch away at a salty pretzel. YUM!
