Does it sometimes seem you are the last one to know about a fun snack that’s been all over Pinterest (for a long time)? It happens to me all the time! How did I miss these fun snacks that long? I’m on Pinterest weekly, and most of the time daily!
A friend told me last week that she’s made these flower treats before. I wonder if she saw them on Pinterest. Since there are a bazillion posts on Pinterest, it makes sense that we might miss a thing or two thousand now and then. Right?
Every spring of my adult life, M-n-M’s™ have been on store shelves in pounder bags of plain and peanut candies in spring colors. I found not one pounder bag this year. What’s up with that?
Everything needed for this recipe can be found at Wally World, but you may need to get creative with the packaging of M-n-M’s™. It helps (a lot!) to unwrap things and prepare them in small bowls for easy and quick access when it’s time to create flowers.
I love sixlets, and since they came in spring colors this year, I thought they would make pretty flower centers.
All you do is spread out the pretzels onto a baking pan. Top each with a white candy melt.
Run them into a 350-degree oven for four or five minutes – just until the candies melt. They’ll still stand firm, but they turn shiny and glossy. Top them immediately with your arrangement of candies.
At first I thought the melts might harden while placing the candies if I tried to make too many in one batch. No problem! You can transform a large pan into flowers with no trouble at all. Aren’t they fun?
This would be a great thing for kids to help make. They would have so much fun with it! No recipe needed here – just buy a package of everything…and create!
Since the candy melts come in different colors, you could experiment with many different looks. Wouldn’t it be fun to get red candy melts and make ladybugs? What other ideas would be cute?
P. S. I’ll be back with you on Sunday. I’m taking tomorrow off for Good Friday – a day for reflection and special focus in the Christian faith. Well, Sunday is, too, but I want to share that happy day with you all. It’s our day to celebrate. He is risen!
