DIY Spring Chocolate Pretzel Butterflies!

Hey All!

It’s the first day of Spring! The flowers are starting to bloom, I’ve got a bun in the oven and the butterflies are flying high. To celebrate the start of warmer fun days, I decided to make these cute and easy to make DIY Spring Chocolate Pretzel Butterflies! How fun are these folks?!! They are the perfect tasty way to welcome Spring!

Here is how to make them!

  • 1 pkg. Pretzel Sticks
  • 1 pkg. Pretzel Twists
  • 1 Wilton Candy Melts, White
  • 1 pkg. Sixlets Candy
  • Rope Black Licorice

First you melt the chocolate in a bowl in the microwave. Heat for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between time, until melted. You then cut the licorice into about ¼ inch pieces. You then dip pretzel sticks into the chocolate until all coated except about ½ inch that your holding and lay on a parchment lined baking sheet.

Make sure to let these set and harden just about halfway and then press on 5 colored Sixlets for the body and 1 White Sixlet for the head. You then place 2 licorice pieces at the top of the pretzel behind the white head to look like antennas.

Lastly you dip the twist pretzels into the chocolate and fully coat them. Place 2 of these on each pretzel stick, one on each side making sure they are firmly against it.

Let these set so the chocolate hardens, then gently pull off the parchment to serve.

That’s all you have to do to make this fun Spring time treat for you and your kids to make!

I hope you love these just as much as I do!
