DIY Custom Dessert Pretzels – Dessert Table

As many of you know, it a big trend now to custom color your desserts or treats to your party theme. So, in the spirit of the “color themed” dessert table – in this case matchy, matchy is in not out! {I watch too much Project Runway!} This is a super easy way to do just that!

Supplies
Bag or container of White Yogurt Dipped Pretzels
Colored Candy Melts
Plastic squeeze bottle found in baking supplies – mine is Wilton
Foil

Simply tear off a large piece of foil and spread out your yogurt pretzels.

You can either melt your colored candy melt in the microwave or in a double boiler saucepan. When using the microwave, I would set the time in 1 minute increments, stirring in-between each minute until melted. Then carefully poor the hot chocolate into the plastic bottle. I will warn you the bottle will be hot to touch. I placed a paper towel around the bottle when using it.

With a fluid motion, drizzle the chocolate back and forth, over the pretzels. I let the chocolate harden for a couple of hours, then layered the pretzels in a plastic container until party day. I used wax paper between each layer of pretzels to keep them from sticking together. They looked perfect!

  22. I have done a very similar thing, but color my own white candy melts in the colors as I need them.. Love the color green. They are perfect for St Patty’s!!
    I have also done this for baby showers using animal crackers!. http://thepearsonfamilee.blogspot.com/2011/04/frosted-animal-crackers-custom-colors.html

    Visiting you from Yvonne’s blog! :}

  23. I dipped pretzels for Valentine’s Day treats. Such an easy fun thing to do. Like the idea of using the squeeze bottle to drizzle the color. I used a fork. This looks easier and less messy. ~ Sarah

  24. Oh boy! I was looking for something like this to use as a cupcake topper for these Guinness and Cream Cheese Cupcakes… how wonderfully cute!
