Valentine’s Day is less than a month away, which means it’s a perfect time to start planning how you’re going to show your love in some fun {and delicious!} ways…and not just to your main squeeze. This holiday is all about letting your friends and family know how special they are! We all know that the quickest way to the heart is often through the tummy, so here is a super easy recipe you can whip up for your friends in no time at all.  You only need three ingredients, and you can find all of them at your local Walmart.



M&M’s® Red Velvet
Pretzel Rods
White Chocolate Melting Wafers
Optional: Red Sugar


Step 1: Place M&M’s® Red Velvet candies in a sealed plastic bag. Use a rolling pin to crush the candies into small pieces.


Step 2: Place white chocolate melting wafers in a mug and heat according to package instructions.

Step 3: Dip your pretzel into the chocolate, turning it around to coat the top part completely and letting the extra run off.


Step 4: Sprinkle crushed M&M’s® Red Velvet onto the melted chocolate. If you want to add more color, you can add red sugar sprinkles as well. I did this on some of mine and left others plain.

Step 5: Place the pretzel rod on a sheet of wax paper or foil and allow the chocolate to harden.

One of the great things about this recipe is that you can make as many or as few of these as you like at a time. If you need a big batch for a party or for school, you can easily make a lot of them by using the whole bag of pretzels/candy wafers/M&M’s® Red Velvet. Or, if you just want to make a few, melt and crush less candy and whip up a handful for your family’s dessert. No matter how many you make, these are a sweet treat that everyone is sure to love. Trust me, I quality tested them just for you.

Now, to actually give these out to classmates and friends, the easiest way I found was to place one pretzel in a sandwich bag along with a handful of M&M’s® Red Velvet candies, then add a cute little topper. Because as sweet as candy and chocolate are, nothing’s sweeter than a friend, right?

To make your own, you can download the free printable topper by clicking here. Just save the image to your computer and print it out at whatever width your sandwich bag happens to be. Mine was 6.5.” Cut out the printed image, fold it in half, and use double stick tape or staples to attach it to the top of the bag.

There you have it! A quick, easy, and incredibly tasty way to celebrate friendship this Valentine’s Day! Who in your life would love a treat like this? {hint, hint…I would}! See more great M&M’s® Red Velvet recipe and party ideas at myconfectioncorner.com/valentines-day where you can also download a coupon to save on your M&M’s® purchase.
