{Katie’s Kitchen} Pumpkin Pretzel Candies

Brought to you by Catoctin Mountain Orchard.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!! Often, parents find themselves scrambling for time when their kids have a Halloween party coming up or even an adult party! These are a great, cute and festive treat that you can make in just FIVE minutes and bring with you for friends to snack on!

All you need are pretzel snaps, M&M minis and chocolate wafers or a Hershey kiss, if you can find them…I just used milk chocolate squares from a chocolate bar and made them a little smaller to fir on the pretzel.

You can make as many as you want! The easy part is that you just pop them in the microwave. First, lay out pretzels on a plate and then the chocolate in the middle right on top of the squares. Then, put them in the microwave for 30-45 seconds…you may have to test this out the first time depending on your microwave.  You want the chocolate to be just melted enough to press M&M’s into it.

Then press 6 little mini orange M&M’s around in a circle into the chocolate with one more in the middle, then grab a green one for the top and turn it on its side for the stem! Done! Make as many as you want– and let them sit for a few minutes to cool before storing and taking to Ithe par-tay!!! The perfect combo of salty and sweet and so colorful for fall!
