Ingredients

  • 1 bag pretzel snaps
  • 1 bag Ghiradelli white chocolate melting wafers
  • 2 bags milk chocolate Easter M&M's

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 225 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. I like a silicone baking mat for these because it is a little grippy and helps the pretzels not slide about as much. Separate M&M's into individual colors in bowls.
  • Arrange pretzel snaps in rows about 5-6 across. Don't squish them too tight as you want some space to work when placing the M&M's later without worrying about touching the other flowers next to it.
  • Place one white chocolate melting wafer in the center of each pretzel snap.
  • Put the pretzels and white chocolate in the oven for 2-3 minutes, just until the white chocolate is barely melted.
  • Remove from the oven and immediately arrange M&M's on each pretzel, pressing one color of M&M in for the center of the flower and 6 others in a contrasting color for the petals around the edges. Let sit for about 20 minutes until the white chocolate solidifies and holds the M&M's in place.

Notes

Microwave approach: If you just want to make a few of these flower pretzel bites at a time, you could do them in the microwave. Just arrange 8-10 pretzels and white chocolate wafers on a plate lined with a piece of parchment paper. Microwave for about 45 seconds, just until the white chocolate starts to melt but isn't melted all the way. Remove and decorate with M&M's.
