Happy Good Friday to you! In today’s post, I’ll be sharing a fun food craft that would be really great to share for your Easter celebration! These little “flowers” are so cute and taste so yummy with the combination of sweet and salty.
You need only 3 ingredients…square mini pretzels, white candy melts and a bag of spring colored M&M’s candy.
Line a cookie sheet with wax paper or parchment paper. Place some pretzels on the cookie sheet. (I started out with a lot of pretzels at one time, but now I think it’s better to do a few at a time so you can keep up with the decorating while the candy is soft.)
The directions I read suggested laying 1 candy melt wafer on each pretzel.
I think it works better if you put 1 1/2 candy wafers on each pretzel.
Preheat your oven to 250 degrees F. While you wait for the oven to heat up, you can sort your M&M’s into like color piles. This will make it easier to find the same color faster.
Once the oven is warm enough, place the cookie sheet in the oven for about 3 minutes. The candy just needs to soften so you can put the M&M’s on the pretzels. I found it helpful to use a small spatula to spread the warm candy on the pretzel.
When the candy is softened, place 1 yellow M&M in the center of the pretzel. Then apply 6 more of the same color M&M’s around the yellow one, pressing down into the candy.
That’s all there is to it! Continue making as many flowers as you’d like to make.
Aren’t they so cute?! Spring flower candy bites are bound to bring a smile to everyone that sees them. Especially to those who TASTE them! Haha!
Maybe set a few out on a plate for the Easter Bunny! 😉 Happy Easter, everyone! 🙂
