How to Make Grinch Pretzel Bites

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees and line an average sized baking sheet with parchment paper.

Line up your pretzels on the pan. Do not overlap them.

Place a candy melt on top of, and in the middle, of each pretzel.

Place in the oven for 5 minutes, or right before the candy melts start to melt down.

Immediately remove from the oven and begin pressing one heart sprinkle in the middle of each candy melt.

Lightly press each sprinkle down so it presses into the candy melt and lightly pushes the candy melt into the pretzel.

Place in the fridge for 10 minutes or until cooled.

Serve and Enjoy!

Helpful Tips:

  • It only took about one package (12 ounces) of neon green candy melts to make this batch. I had leftover pretzels and sprinkles, so if you got more candy melts, you could make a pretty big batch of these.
  • When you pull the pretzels out of the oven, press a sprinkle into one of them and if it cracks rather than gives a bit, they may need to go back in the oven for a minute or two because this means they’re not soft enough. You don’t want them to fully melt, just be soft.
  • You don’t want to press too hard on the sprinkles as you don’t want to fully smash the candy melt or chance breaking the pretzel.
  • I like using thicker, name brand pretzels, as they hold up better through the process. Some pretzels allow the chocolate melt to stick better than other pretzels. Snaps tend to not let them stick as well, but still work to get the job done.
  • Store in a cool dry place or the chocolate and sprinkle can melt.
