Yes, Valentine's Day has come and gone... and these pink and red treats look like they should have been posted PRIOR to February 14th. But, I don't do anything on time anymore soooo, there you have it. When you have to put "shower!" on your to-do list, just like that with an exclamation mark, then you know you're not going to have your blog posts organized like the rest of the blogging world. I'm sorry. But only sort of sorry, because if you'd do me a favor and imagine that the candy melts are GREEN, then you could say I'm a month early for St. Patrick's Day treats! I'm awesome!
These are really easy to make and fun for children too (if you're okay with them looking extremely messy). Simply melt candy melts (or chocolate) in a disposable decorating bag. I do this in my microwave for 30 second intervals, massaging the bag in between each to help with the melting process. This usually takes about one minute and thirty seconds... and make sure to fill the bag only 3/4 full so your candy doesn't ooze out. Then, fold the top over a bit to make it easier to dip your pretzel. Dip, twirl, let the excess drip off, and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet...
Decorate with more piping, sprinkles or mini chocolate chips! Mmm, coconut would be yummy too. The possibilities are endless, just make sure to decorate quickly because the candy sets fast.
I found pretzel bags that made them very presentable and easy to travel with.
