How to Make Pumpkin Pretzels

Can you believe it’s already October?! The leaves are changing, the air is getting crisp, and pumpkin spice everything is everywhere. I don’t know about you, but this time of year always gets me in the mood for baking. And what says fall baking more than pretzels? Today, I’m going to show you how to make the most delicious pumpkin pretzels using only three ingredients: pretzels, orange candy melts, green M&Ms, and a lot of fall spirit!

Easy Halloween Snacks For Kids

You will need orange candy melts, pretzels, and green M&Ms. The goal is to make about 3 to 4 dozen pumpkin pretzels using this recipe.

Next, line a baking sheet or a large tray with parchment paper. Line a baking sheet or large tray with parchment paper.

Melt the candy. You may use the microwave method, but I prefer the double boiler method. Fill a saucepan with 1-2 inches of water, turn the burner on the stove to low-medium, and set the saucepan on the burner.

Pour the candy melts into a glass or metal heat-safe bowl that fits in the pan, but doesnโ€™t touch the water. Stir candy until fully melted.

Dip the pretzels into the candy, thoroughly coating them, then place them onto a parchment-lined tray.

Place an M&M candy at the top, and center of each pretzel to make the pumpkin’s stem.

Allow the candy coating to set. You may place the tray in the refrigerator to help speed the process.
