We made these fun ladybug pretzels for Kenzie’s spring party. These chocolate covered pretzels were the #1 hit at the party. They taste as good as they look. I don’t like to just show you a picture and let you guess how it is done. I like to empower you to be able to create these things. Some of you might see this and just know how to duplicate it. Others may have absolutely no clue and really appreciate a tutorial. So, that’s what I’m going to give. I clicked on the image I used from Pinterest, and it didn’t go anywhere, so I can’t link back. I have worked a lot with Candy Melts, so I knew what I needed to do. I hope you will be encouraged to see how easy it is to duplicate.

I have a lot of posts about working with Candy Melts. They are so easy to use. You can search my blog for “Candy Melts” if you want further ideas or instructions. I have completely embraced the microwave directions…finally…and it works great. I purchased both a red and a black bag for this treat.
Once melted, you will want to dip your pretzel in the chocolate. I put it in the chocolate, spooned chocolate over it, picked it up over the bowl and let the excess fall back into the bowl. I could also poke my fingers through the holes if needed.
I laid all of my pretzels on wax paper on a jelly roll pan. I stuck these in the refrigerator to harden, which doesn’t take much time at all.
I don’t have a picture of the final step, but I use a squeeze bottle (I found mine at my craft store, but I also saw them the other day in the grocery store) to do the polka dots on the backs of the ladybugs. I actually had my husband helping out with this party.
Like I said, the kids absolutely adored these chocolate ladybug pretzel treats.
