How to Make Grinch Pretzels

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place pretzels flat on the baking sheet in a single layer.
Add one green candy melt on top of each pretzel.
Bake in the oven for about 5 minutes or until the candy melt is softened.
Remove from the oven and add a candy heart to the top of each pretzel while the candy is still warm. Some kitchen tweezers work well for this job.
Allow the pretzels to completely cool and harden.
Serve and enjoy!

How to Store Grinch Pretzel Bites

No need to refrigerate! Store in an airtight container for up to a week.
I like to store these in a pretty clear canister with an airtight lid. It allows easy access and makes a festive display in the kitchen.

Tips & Tricks

  • Use Candy Melts instead of white chocolate. It’s much easier to work with and saves the step of trying to get just the right color by adding food coloring to white chocolate.
  • There are several different shades of green Candy Melts. Choose the one you like best or mix a few to get the perfect Grinch green.
