In our never-ending quest to make a pretzel bite for every occasion, we came up with these super cute Pumpkin Pretzel Bites.  They are easy to put together, will last forever, and, of course, are sweet, salty, and delicious.  They are a fun treat for Halloween, Fall, or Thanksgiving.  They have such a delicious and unique sweet and salty taste.  And they stay fresh for months if you keep store them in an airtight container (although who are we kidding, they’ll be eaten long before that).  Happy Fall everyone!.

Ingredients You Will Need

All the ingredients you will need to make Pumpkin Pretzel Bites including Pretzel Snaps, Chocolate Melting Wafers and Orange and Green Mini M&M's.

You will need M&M Mini’s to make our Pumpkin Pretzel Bites. Regular-sized M&M’s are too big for these pretzel bites.   Every bag of M&M’s has a random combination of colors but in the single bag of M&M minis that we used there were enough orange and green candies to make about two dozen Pumpkin Pretzel Bites.

Assembly Instructions

We like to use the square Pretzel Snaps when making Pretzel Bites but you can also use the round mini pretzels.  First, place 7-8 Pretzel Snaps on a paper plate. Cover the pretzels with a Ghirardelli Chocolate Melting Wafers (you can also use a Hershey’s Kiss or a Wilton Dark Chocolate Candy Melt.)  

Heat in a microwave oven for approximately 30-45 seconds. The exact timing will take a bit of trial and error.  You want the candy to be melted enough to press the M&M’s into, but not so melted that the candy melt loses its’ shape and the chocolate starts dripping off of the pretzel.  The exact time in the microwave will depend on how many pretzel/candy’s you do at one time, how powerful your microwave is, the type of pretzels you are using, etc.  For us using the Ghirardelli Chocolate Melting Wafers, 7-8 pretzels took 40 seconds to melt to the right consistency.

Once the candy melts are softened, place seven orange Mini M&M’s on the melted chocolate as shown in the picture above. Finally, add one green Mini M&M’s at the top of the pumpkin to represent the pumpkin stem.
