Flower Pretzel Bites are sweet, salty, and delicious – an easy and fun treat for Easter, Spring, or Mother’s Day.
Spring is in the air, or WAS, until it started snowing again. Just after everything had finally melted too! (Boo!) This is typical crazy Utah weather though. We’ve had 3 snow days this year where school was cancelled, and to be honest, I don’t remember a single one when I was a kid. So to say we are excited for spring is an understatement, which is why we made these super cute and easy Flower Pretzel Bites.
If you’re like me, then you love salty-sweet combos. I also have a slight addiction with pretzel treats. I’ve made pretzel hugs, cookie dough pretzel bites, and peanut butter pretzel bites. All delicious for different reasons. These Flower Pretzel Bites are equally delicious and totally cute. They are a fun food craft for the kids too. You literally microwave candy melts on top of pretzels and top them with M&M’s. So easy! Be sure to use a paper plate so the candy melts melt quickly.
The thing I love about pretzel treats is the versatility. You can literally melt whatever chocolate you want, and top it with whatever candy you want. This candy melt + M&M combo is really tasty! Plus the colored M&M’s are so fun!
Flower Pretzel Bites would be great for Easter, Mother’s Day, or any spring party. You can switch up the colored M&M’s for different holidays too. Think of all the possibilities! Have fun with it!
Flower Pretzel Bites
- Mini Pretzels
- Wilton Candy Melts - White
- Easter/Pastel M&M's
- Arrange pretzels on a PAPER plate. Place a candy melt in the center of each pretzel.
- Microwave until soft, but not runny. (The time will depend on how many pretzels are on your plate and how strong your microwave is. My plate of 14 pretzels took roughly 1 minute 20 seconds.)
- Immediately place one M&M into the center, then six more M&M's around the center for the flower petals. Work quickly. Refrigerate/freeze pretzel bites until solidified. Eat or package treats as gifts.
- TIP: Keep the "M" side of the M&M's down for better looking flowers. You may also need to overlap them slightly on a regular shaped pretzel. If you can find the square shaped pretzels, those hold the M&M's better.

Can flower pretzel bites be frozen?
Yes these will freeze just fine. The only issue you may have is the color from the M&M’s bleeding off when they thaw. Make sure you keep them in the container that you froze them in until they are completely thawed, so the condensation forms on the outside of the container instead of on the candy coating.
First of all this is not as easy as you make it seem. It’s quite hard. And using the white chocolate disks……not a solution. It’s just not enough chocolate. Melting it on top of the pretzels in the microwave or in the oven is also a bad idea. I put the disks in a bowl and melted them in the microwave for about 30 to 45 seconds. The I used a spoon to fill in the 3 holes of the pretzels and make sure that the top was covered. You can only do about 3 pretzels at a time. It’s a slow process. And the M&M’s really don’t stick the the chocolate that great. They come off very easily. Yes. They’re cute. But very time consuming.
I’m sorry you had such a hard time. The flower petals do better sticking to the chocolate when pressed in at an angle. I’m glad you found an alternative solution that worked for you.
Can’t wait to make these…
These are the cutest!! What a fun Easter treat!
