Ingredients You Need

Square pretzels, white candy melts, pastel M&Ms and a black edible color marker.
  • Pretzels – For the best results, we highly recommend using square pretzel snaps
  • Candy Melts – Use white chocolate candy melts to act as a “glue” holding the M&Ms to the pretzels. If preferred, white chocolate almond bark will also work.
  • M&Ms – We opt for pastel-colored M&Ms to keep these bunny pretzels super festive, but any color will work. 
  • Food Marker – Find food markers online, in the baking section of your local grocery store, or at select craft stores. 

How to Make No-Bake Easter Bunny Pretzels

  1. Arrange nine to ten pretzel snaps on a wax paper-lined microwave-safe plate. 
  2. Top each pretzel with one white candy melt. 
  3. Melt the candy in the microwave until is soft and partially melted. It shouldn’t be so melted that the chocolate is dripping through the pretzel! 
  4. Press a whole M&M on top of each candy melt. Then, add two halves to make ears. 
  5. Set the pretzels aside on a plate or parchment paper-lined baking sheet to cool and set. Then, use the marker to draw eyes and a nose. Alternatively, you can use black food coloring gel to create black dots for the face.
  6. Serve, and enjoy your Easter pretzels!

Note: You can absolutely make more than ten bites. However, you want to work in batches, because the candy melts harden quickly!

Equipment

  • 1 Microwave-Safe Plate
  • wax paper or parchment paper

Ingredients

  • 1 16 ounce bag Square Pretzel Snaps
  • 1 12 ounce bag White Candy Melts
  • 1 10 ounce bag Spring Colored M&Ms
  • Fine Tip Food Marker

Instructions

  • Determine how many pretzel bunnies you would like to make. Sort out as many M&Ms as you'll need by color (1 whole M&M and 2 halves for each pretzel treat). With a sharp knife, cut some of the M&Ms in half for the ears.
    1 16 ounce bag Square Pretzel Snaps, 1 12 ounce bag White Candy Melts
  • On a wax paper or parchment paper lined microwave-safe plate, lay 9-10 pretzel snaps out (see notes).
  • Top each pretzel with one white candy melt. Microwave for 30 to 50 seconds until the candy is soft and somewhat melted. (You want the candy to be soft enough to press an M&M into it, but not so melty that it’s dripping through the pretzel.)
  • Working quickly, press a whole M&M onto each pretzel, then add two M&M halves to make ears.

  • Allow the white candies to cool and harden before drawing two eyes and a nose on the M&Ms.

  • Store in airtight container for up to one week.

Notes

You can make lots of these bunny treats with one bag each of pretzels, candy melts, and M&Ms. However, work in batches of 10 or less, because the candy melts set up quickly. If some of the candy melts do set up before you are able to add the M&Ms simply microwave again.
