Autumn Pretzel Treats

Yet another recipe...I'm addicted at the moment! I saw this on Pinterest and decided to put my own spin on it - Autumn themed chocolate coloured pretzels. They taste so good and are ideal as a snack for lunchtime, or to pile into a gift bag and give to a friend for Halloween. One of the recipes went wrong so we had to adapt it slightly, who knew that melted chocolate could go so weird when you added a bit too much food dye? Anyway, I'm rambling. All you need to know (except from how to make the treats) is that these pretzels are hella cute and super tasty.

Milk Chocolate
White Chocolate
Orange Food Dye
Autumn Sprinkles
Green M&Ms (you don't actually need these for the recipe I did in the end, but I'll explain how you could incorporate them if you wanted to)

Recipe 1: Milk Chocolate, 'Leafy' Pretzels
  • Melt half a bar of milk chocolate and set out a baking tray with a baking sheet on the top of it.
  • Cover the pretzels in chocolate and place them on the tray.
  • Place three leaf sprinkles on the treat, and then dust some orange edible glitter on the top for extra pizazz.
  • Keep in the fridge for 15 minutes and then take out and eat! Yum.

Recipe 2: White Chocolate, Orange Pretzels
  • Melt some white chocolate and stir in some orange food dye so the mix goes bright orange.
  • If you don't completely mess up your batch of chocolate, then place on a tray and put a green M&M on the top to look like a pumpkin stalk - a pumpkin pretzel if you will!
  • If you mess up the first batch like Harry and I and you don't have much dye left, make a new batch and only slightly colour the chocolate. Coat the pretzels and sprinkle with orange and yellow sprinkles. We also added a pumpkin shaped sprinkle on the top.
  • Keep in the fridge for 15 minutes and then take out and enjoy!

I actually decided to bag mine in these little pink and white bags and give them to family as a cute little treat bag! It's such a cheap and easy gift and goes down so well - who could resist something as yummy as this?

What's your go-to Autumn treat?
Stay beautiful!
