Pretzel Pops Recipe
Making pretzel pops is an easy way to get kids in the kitchen cooking and creating. I’m sharing a fun endangered animals-themed recipe today that makes a great addition to an endangered animals unit study. Older kids can make these themselves while younger kids will enjoy assisting you as they make their own animal-themed snacks.
- Black and Orange Fondant
- Edible Eyeball Candies
- Orange and White Candy Melts
- Pretzel Rods
- Shredded Coconut
- Place the candy melts in microwave-safe bowls and heat them up until melted. Stop the microwave and stir occasionally. It should only take 20-30 seconds for them to melt.
- Spoon the melted candy over 2/3 of the pretzel rod. If you’re making the tiger you’ll use the orange candy, if you’re making the polar bear use the white candy.
- To make the polar bear pour coconut on a plate and roll the warm candy-covered pretzel over the coconut until the candy is covered. Stick the candy eyeballs on while the melted candy is still warm.
- To make the tiger add the eyes while the candy is still warm then let cool.
- When the pretzel pops have cooled add fondant noses and mouths to the animals. If you’re making a tiger use the fondant to add stripes to the tiger.
Eat and Enjoy!
