Easy Peasy Chocolate Covered Pretzel Pumpkins Recipe

My family just adores Halloween. We get dressed up in our themed costumes, all of us, and have a ball. This year, we had a few parties to attend and I volunteered to make a Halloween treat. With so much going on, like making my own costume, I had to do something quick and easy. I remembered seeing pictures floating around of these adorable little chocolate covered pretzels that resembled pumpkins! It seemed simple enough so I tried my hand at making some. They turned out great and even better, DELICIOUS, and even if you aren’t very skilled at baking or cooking or creativity, you can make them too!

First, you’ll need orange melting chocolate, green M&Ms, and miniature pretzels. My husband couldn’t find a bag of just green M&Ms so I picked through regular bags. I think some stores do carry them in one color but you’d have to look or grab the kids and let them help you sift through a regular bag like I did!

Orange melting chocolate
Mini pretzels
Green M&Ms
Wax paper or aluminum foil


1. Melt your chocolate into a bowl as per the directions on the bag.
2. Take each pretzel and dip it into the chocolate.
3. Place it onto a wax paper, aluminum foil, etc. that will make it easy to remove when dry.


4. While still wet, place an M&M in between the two round parts at the top of the pretzel and let it dry. 5. (Optional) I put it in the fridge to speed up the drying process so I could keep reusing the same paper.

Voila! Tiny pumpkins that look cute and taste delightful!

These chocolate covered pumpkins are very cute. I will have to keep this in mind when Halloween comes around again.

I like these. They are so easy to make. And cost much less than buying it at the store. I love the taste of crisp, salty pretzels and the sweetness of chocolate.
