Looking for a last minute treat for Easter? Or an activity to keep the kids busy for a bit while they are out of school on Easter break? These super-adorable bites are so easy to make, they are perfect to either throw together quickly, or take a more leisurely pace and have your kids do the assembly for a fun and delicious afternoon.
These are also really customizable, you can use any candy to press into the chocolate on top of the pretzels. I used peanut butter egg-shaped M&M’s because the combination of chocolate, peanut butter, and crunchy, salty pretzel is right up my alley. I also used a few marshmallow chicks I found in the baking section at Wal-Mart, just to add a cute touch to the scene!
These are so cute, I took a zillion pictures. I couldn’t stop shooting them. And I couldn’t stop eating them, either! Take a picture, pop a pretzel bite in my mouth, take another picture, pop another pretzel bite, and so on. It was a morning of fun and yum! Luckily I had a bunch of extra pretzel bites, so I didn’t have to dip into my carefully arranged display until I was all done with the photoshoot. 🙂
