Need a quick and easy St. Patrick’s Day treat recipe? I originally found this recipe on Love From The Oven and I know I’ll be making them a TON! These holiday St. Patrick’s Day Pretzel Bites couldn’t be quicker or easier! All you need is 3 ingredients, 5 minutes, and you wind up with the cutest pretzel treats ever. Seriously, it took longer for the oven to heat up than it took for me to make these.
This is also a great recipe to make with your kids. Letting them participate in making these for their friends or classmates makes it even more special! Little ones can work on patterns and colors, and bigger kids can tackle this one all on their own if you’re comfortable letting them use the oven. Warning: The candy melts are hot when they come out of the oven, so kiddos will need to be careful when adding the M&Ms.
St. Patrick's Day Pretzel Bites
- Square pretzels
- Candy melts (I chose white and brown, but go with whatever colors you want!)
- M&Ms (the only green & white M&Ms I found were mint and mint is gross, so I just grabbed a big bag and picked out the green)
- Preheat your oven to 350.
- Line a baking sheet with foil.
- Lay out the pretzels in a single layer on the baking sheet and place a candy melt on each pretzel.
- Bake for around 90 seconds (this can totally vary based on your oven, so keep a very close eye on them!).
- As soon as you remove the pan from the oven, lightly press an M&M into each candy melt.
- Let cool and enjoy! The original recipe said you could put them in the fridge for about 20 minutes to harden, but I just let mine cool on the counter.
This St. Patrick’s Day Pretzel Bites recipe is so easy to customize for whatever holiday or crowd size you may have! I’ve made them for several holidays, seasons, and parties and they are always a hit. Originally, I was only going to make one pan, but once I tasted them I knew I had to make a second batch. These are great for a class party or to make as an easy gift, plus it’s such a fun recipe to make with your kids! For updates on new posts, follow me on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
