No Bake Pretzel Bites

These simple no bake pretzel bites are a very versatile recipe. Change around the colors for any or no occasion. A perfect bite of sweet and salty!

If you have been on this blog before, you know there are a lot of sweet and salty pretzel recipes.

Can you tell I love the combo of sweet and salty? LOL!

I make some version of these bites for every holiday and for no reason at all.

My whole family loves them and it’s fun to switch around the colors.

One year I made these bites with my daughters college colors. She loved them so much, she started making them for her friends and roommates.

Great to toss some in clear treat bags for a yummy edible gift.

The whole recipe is only 3 simple ingredients and this is the first time I made them in the microwave instead of the oven.

As you can see from the photos, they are made with vibrant patriotic colors.

Since the oven was not put on, the kitchen stayed cool and how convenient to use the microwave.

Make some of these soon, everyone will love them!

The best of sweet and salty!

Here are the three ingredients to make these yummy treats:

  • Pretzel snaps, the square snaps such as Snyder’s
  • Wilton Candy Melts, I used royal blue, bright white, and red found at craft stores and on online (highlighted ingredients found online)
  • M&Ms, I used red, white, and blue for this recipe, I found them at Target and Walmart
  • Full Printable recipe down below in the recipe box

This simple recipe has only three steps!

Here are the easy-peasy directions:

  1. Place the pretzels on a microwave safe plate, and place a Wilton candy melt on each one.
  2.  Microwave for 10 seconds at a time, until each melt is soft all the way through.
  3.  Immediately place an opposite colored M&M on each melt, and set aside to harden. You can pop these in the fridge for 15 minutes to harden quicker. No longer though. Keep sealed in container on counter up to 5 days.
