Calling all Easter dessert enthusiasts and anyone who loves a sweet and salty treat! These adorable Sweet and Salty Pretzel Bunnies are the perfect addition to your Easter festivities. They’re incredibly easy to make, require minimal ingredients, and are guaranteed to be a hit with both kids and adults.


  • 1 bag (14.3 oz) pretzel twists
  • 1 bag (12 oz) white candy melts
  • Pink candy melts (optional)
  • Black candy eyes (optional)
  • Sprinkles (optional)


###Melting the Candy Melts

  1. Prepare a baking sheet: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. This will make cleaning up a breeze!
  2. Melt the white candy melts: Place the white candy melts in a microwave-safe bowl and heat in 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval, until melted and smooth. Be careful not to overheat, as this can cause the candy melts to seize.

Tip: If you don’t have a microwave, you can melt the candy melts in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water, stirring constantly until melted.

###Assembling the Bunnies

  1. Decorate the pretzels: Dip the bottom half of each pretzel twist into the melted white chocolate. Gently tap off any excess chocolate and place the pretzel on the prepared baking sheet.
  2. Create the ears: While the chocolate is still wet, gently press two pretzel twists upright onto the decorated half of the first pretzel, forming the bunny ears.

Tip: You can use different sized pretzel twists for the ears and body to create different sized bunnies.

  1. Add features (optional): Once the chocolate has set, use pink candy melts or sprinkles to create a cute bunny nose, and add black candy eyes for a finishing touch.

Tip: Get creative with the decorations! You can use edible glitter, chopped nuts, or even mini marshmallows to add personality to your bunnies.

  1. Let the chocolate set: Allow the chocolate to set completely before storing or serving. This can take about 15-20 minutes at room temperature.


Your adorable Sweet and Salty Pretzel Bunnies are now ready to be enjoyed! They’re perfect for Easter baskets, party snacks, or simply a sweet and salty treat.

Additional Tips:

  • For a richer flavor, you can use milk chocolate or dark chocolate candy melts instead of white chocolate.
  • If you don’t have candy melts, you can use white chocolate chips or melting wafers. Just be sure to melt them carefully according to the package instructions.
  • These bunnies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.

So hop to it and create these delightful treats! They’re sure to be a spring sensation!
