Funfetti Candy Pretzel Bites

  • This will be my second year doing the Color Run in Kansas City. It’s a 5K where you run with a bunch of people and get blasted with brightly colored powder. Fun! The only problem is I don’t really love to run so I need a little inspiration. These FUNfetti treats are the perfect remedy. They are salty, sweet, crunchy and smooth. And who doesn’t love a little bit of chocolate?

    Funfetti Candy Pretzel Bites
    What makes these little bites funfetti are the Wilton Colorburst candy melts that I melt on the pretzels before topping them with M&M’s. They have these great little specks of confetti in them! I usually use Hershey’s kisses melted on top, but I couldn’t pass by these at the store and not get them.
    These Wilton melts come in bright and pastel. I used pastel because of the colors of M&M’s I used. I used purple, turquoise, mint green and light pink.
    I actually used candy coated chocolate instead of M&M’s because I can find them for a little cheaper but either will work great.
    Last year I made some funfetti white chocolate puppy chow and look how much fun we had!
    So yeah, this year should be pretty FUN!
    Funfetti Candy Pretzel Bites
    Pretzels {I like using Snyder Snaps}
    10 oz bag Wilton candy melts Colorburst pastels
    Colored candy coated chocolates or M&M’s
    Preheat oven to 200 degrees and line baking sheet with parchment paper. Place one candy melt in the center of each pretzel.
    Bake for 4 minutes only. Place one M&M on each candy melt.
    Press down slightly.
    Place baking sheet in fridge for a few minutes before handling so the candy melts will harden up a bit.
    So what do you think? Are these worthy of being a good snack for the “happiest 5K on the planet?”
    I think so!
    Ok, 4 days until the race. Time to start training! :)
