Valentine’s Day Candy Coated Pretzels

I feel like it’s an unpopular opinion, but I really love Valentine’s Day. It might be because of the candy, or it could be because I love all the pinks and reds that it brings, but I really enjoy the holiday! It’s a great excuse to make something special for someone you care about and show them how much they mean to you. Plus, it’s always nice to be reminded that love is all around. So why not celebrate the day of love? It’s fun, festive, and there’s usually lots of yummy treats! I’m all about it.

Valentines day pretzels

All in all, I think Valentine’s Day is an underrated holiday that deserves more appreciation. There are plenty of ways to express your love and care without spending a fortune.

These pretzels are made with candy melts and they are so simple to make. I like to add a bit of extra sparkle with sprinkles or edible glitter, but they are just as delicious without! They make the perfect treat for the special people in your life this Valentine’s Day. They’re also really fun to make with the kids, so you can get the whole family involved in something special.

The ingredients for these candy coated Valentine’s Day pretzels:

Valentines day pretzels

  • 3 oz pink candy melts
  • 3 oz red candy melts
  • 3 oz white candy melts

How to make these pretzels:

Valentines day pretzels
  1. Melt the candy melts in the microwave in short increments (15-20 seconds). Stir in between. Remove the melts when they are fully melted.
  2. Dip each pretzel in the melted candy and then decorate with the sprinkles you chose.
  3. Put all the dipped pretzels on parchment paper in the fridge for about 30 minutes, or until the candy has hardened.

I told you it was super easy to make these! I also love that you can mix up the melts and use different colors for each holiday. For Halloween, you may choose to use orange melts and googly eyes to make them spooky. For Christmas, you can use red and green candy melts.
