Chocolate Covered Pretzel Treats

With Valentine’s Day just days away, we have been working on little treats and Valentine’s for Lily’s teachers, our aunties, grandma and great grandma.  What makes a better treat than a classic candy like M&M’s®?  A festive twist that incorporates this candy along with some other basic ingredients.  The result is completely adorable and gift-worthy (not to mention they taste delicious)!

I stopped at Walmart over the weekend and rounded up the ingredients to make these “Cupid Kisses,” as well as a few other gift-y items for teachers and family.  I bought an 8 oz bag of M&M’s® Strawberry Candies to use for my “Cupid Kisses.” The chocolate filled DOVE® Valentine’s Day tins, along with a couple American Greetings® Valentine’s Day greeting cards completed my shopping for this holiday.

It was easy to find these items at Walmart.  The M&M’s® and DOVE® products were in seasonal candy aisles, while the cards were actually near the end cap display in a party supply aisle.

To make some adorable “Cupid Kisses” here’s what you need:

  • 8 oz M&M’s® Strawberry Candies
  • White Melting Chocolate Wafers
  • Pink Melting Chocolate Wafers
  • Square pretzels
  • Valentine’s themed sprinkles

How to make:

Melt white chocolate in a candy melting pot (or on a stovetop or in the microwave, whatever your preference).

One by one, dip the pretzels into the white chocolate, covering each one completely with chocolate.

Pretzel

Lay pretzels on wax paper on a cookie tray.  Place an M&M’s® Strawberry Candy on each pretzel before the chocolate hardens.  Sprinkle with a pinch of Valentine’s sprinkles right after you place the M&M’s® Candy on top.

Heat up the pink melting chocolate next.  I put a small amount of wafers in a dish and microwaved it a little at a time until it melted.  I then drizzled melted pink chocolate over the entire try of pretzels.
