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.
TO MAKE IN THE OVEN: Place on a baking sheet. Bake at 200 degrees Fahrenheit for 4 to 5 minutes or until the chocolate is soft.
