Candied Pretzels

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Doing it Right

I make these every once in a while when I need a salt/sweet fix. I also make them when I have left over pretzels, M&M's or chocolate. At specific holiday's I use appropriate colored M&M's and chocolate. I use different colored chocolate disks from my candy and cake shop. I know that Hobby Lobby and Michaels both carry the colored disk from Wilton. I think the disk melt up so smooth. My 4 year old son likes to help put the M&M's on. It does go much quicker with someone putting the M&M's on. I'm only giving basic amounts, you will probably have left overs of one or the other. I usually run out of the colored chocolate.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 (16 ounce) bags miniature pretzel twists
  • 1 lb M&M'
  • 2 lbs milk chocolate


  1. Place all pretzels in a single layer on wax paper, make sure you have lots of room.
  2. Place about 1/2 lb. of chocolate in a microwave safe bowl.
  3. Microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring inbetween until chocolate is smooth.
  4. Spoon a small amount of chocolate in the center knot of each pretzel. (I do a small section of chocolate, and then I go to the next step if I don't have help).
  5. Immediately place a M&M on top of the chocolate.
  6. Let cool until chocolate is set.
  7. Store in an air tight container, if they last that long, very addictive.
