The Easiest Pretzel Cookies

  • 1 Bag of square pretzels
  • Bags of candy melts in different colors (for Christmas I use green, red and white; for Easter pink, white and other pastels)


On a microwave plate put about 10 pretzels and a candy melt on top of each. Microwave for about 40 seconds. Remove from microwave and using your finger push the candy melt down onto the pretzels so it sticks. Candy melts will be slightly melted. With spatula move pretzels to waxed paper to cool.

They look very pretty and taste good. They make inexpensive gifts in a transparent gift bag tied with a pretty ribbon or served on a plate. What could be easier?

I bought one of those large containers of pretzels at BJ's and used 3 bags of candy melts (red, white and green) and made over 300 of these one afternoon. I used the 3 bags of melts but only half of the container of pretzels, which are great eaten by themselves as a low-fat snack. Enjoy!

Candy melts are the bags of candy disks that you can find in craft stores like AC Moore, or Michaels - usually near the Wilton cake decorating things.
