Placing a Different Color M&M All the Way Around the One M&M in the Middle of the Candy Melt to make a Flower

I love a dessert recipe that is simple, pretty, and tasty! These flower pretzels are the perfect addition to any Easter dessert table, as a gift for kids to make for their mom for Mother’s Day, or just as a fun sweet treat. I especially love that I can easily make many different colors of flowers since there’s plenty of colors of M&M’s.

These M&M pretzel bites are a go-to easy recipe of mine. I love that they are no-bake and take just a few minutes to throw together. Perfect for any last minute “oops I forgot I’m bringing the dessert” moments! These are also a great treat for your kids to help you make and bring to their school classrooms for Easter.

Ingredients for Flower Pretzels

  • Pretzels – Be sure you get the rectangle shaped pretzels (or mini pretzel twists) so you have plenty of surface area to make the flowers!
  • Easter M&M’s – You can find these on the seasonal aisle in your grocery store. If you’re not able to find them, regular M&M’s will work fine, your flowers just won’t be super “springy”.
  • White Candy Melts – White candy melts works easiest in this recipe, but if you can’t find them you could use white chocolate chips.

Helpful Tools

How to Make M&M Pretzel Bites

While your oven is preheating, line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place pretzels even spaced on the baking sheet.

Place one candy wafer melt on top of each pretzel. Pop them in the oven for 2 minutes, just until the candy is slightly melted.

Place an Easter M&M in the center of your pretzel and then place six more M&M’s around it to create a flower!

Allow the pretzels to set for about 30 minutes, then enjoy!

How long do Flower Pretzels last?

Pro Tips for the best Flower Pretzels

  • Be sure to work quickly while decorating these spring flower pretzel bites so that the candy does not set before you place the M&M’s. If you are making these by yourself, work in batches and melt the candy 8-10 pretzels at a time.
  • Don’t overheat the candy melts! You want them to be just softened, not melted enough that they are dripping through the pretzel.
  • Separate your M&M’s into colors before you decorate so you can easily find the color you are looking for.
