If you are needing a quick and easy treat for some of those cook outs this summer consider making these Ladybug Pretzel Treats. My kiddos and family loved our Easter Chick Pretzel Treats so much, I figured it was time to whip up some pretzel treats for the summer picnics and snacks. This Ladybug Pretzel treat Idea is so simple even the kiddos can help out with making them.
Ladybug Pretzel Treats
Just grab some pretzels, chocolate and a few candies. The sweet and salty together is perfect! Plus they are adorable. Look around your cabinets for different candies that will work for dots. You could also pipe black chocolate for the dots and white chocolate for the eyes.
24 Mini Pretzels
1 cup Red Candy Melting Chips
24 Brown M&Ms
48 Candy Eyes or Mini White chocolate Chips
96 Black candy Pearls
Lay pretzels out on wax paper lined cookie sheet.
Heat Red Candy Chips by microwaving for 30 seconds stirring and repeating until melted. Allow to cool for 2-3 minutes.
Transfer chocolate to corner of zippered bag and clip tiny piece off of corner to pipe.
Pipe candy over inside of pretzel to fill completely. Smooth with finger if necessary.
Place M&M for head on rounded end of pretzel.
Place 4 pearls for spots.
Use a small dot of melted chocolate as “glue” to attach eyes to head.
Place cookie sheet in refrigerator for 20 minutes to allow candy to set.
I made these Ladybug Pretzel Treats this morning. I am going to let the kiddos enjoy them for an after school treat. I am thinking they will be great for our next grill out with friends.
