Tigger Tail Decorated Pretzels | If you’ve ever been to Disneyland and visited Pooh Corner in Critter Country, then you most likely have had their Tigger Tail treat! This incredible treat has stacked marshmallows, dipped in caramel and melted candy and then covered in orange sugar with little dark chocolate strips. Look below↓↓↓↓for my version of this delicious treat. Anyway back to the Tigger Tail Decorated Pretzels. These pretzels are a nod to the original Tigger Tail but instead of a marshmallow center their is a salty pretzel center.
Whether you’re planning a cute Winnie The Pooh Baby Shower or a Winnie The Pooh Birthday Party these treats are the best! Don’t forget about your little tigers in your life! Take these fun treats to the kids after a hard night of playing ball.
PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER
No tricks here. To create the caramel coating I used a can of Dulce de Leche from Nestle’ and a little bit of cream.
Then give the pretzels another dip but this time in orange candy melts, using the same tip as the caramel.
While the candy is still wet cover with orange sugar sprinkles.
Once the candy has hardened, make strips with melted dark chocolate candy melts.
I’ve made a lot of different kinds of pretzels but these are by far my absolute favorite!
- 15 pretzel rods
- 2 (13.4 ounce) cans Dulce de Leche from Nestlé
- 1 (12 ounce) bag orange candy melts
- 1 tablespoon shortening
- 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
- orange sugar spinkles (about 6 ounces)
- 1 cup dark chocolate candy melts
- 1/2 tablespoon shortening
NOTE about the Dulce de Leche: You only need one can. Using two makes the dipping process a lot easier. Cut the whipping cream to 1/8 a cup if you only use one can.
For the Caramel Layer:
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Scrap Dulce de Leche out of the cans and into a tall glass jar. Microwave 1 minute, stir and add heavy whipping cream. Heat an additional 30 seconds. Stir caramel and whipping cream until combined. Dip pretzel in warm caramel. Tap off any excess. The best way to tap off the extra caramel is to hold the pretzel at almost an upright position but still tilted enough to that when you tap the caramel will fall into the jar. As you tap work your way down the pretzel by tapping on the edge of the jar. Place on the prepared pan. Once all the pretzels are coated with caramel place in the refrigerator and get started with melting the candy.
For the Melted Candy Layer:
Pour candy and 1 tablespoon of shortening either in a microwave safe bowl or a Wilton Candy Melting Pot. If using the microwave heat in 30 second intervals stirring between each ( 1 minute and 30 seconds).
On another cookie sheet place a piece of parchment paper. Take the pretzels out of the refrigerator. Coat pretzels with melted candy. Tap on the edge of the bowl or melting pot. Once all the extra melted candy has dropped off the pretzel and while the candy is still wet pour sprinkles all over the pretzel and place on prepared pan. When all the pretzels have been coated with the melted candy and sprinkles. Place the cookie sheet into the refrigerator to harden (about 15 minutes).
For the Dark Chocolate Drizzle:
Place a new piece of parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Pour candy melts into a microwave safe bowl and heat until melted (about 1 minute and 30 seconds). Pour melted candy into a piping bag, snip the end and add stripes to the pretzel. Place the pretzels onto the prepared pan. Once all the pretzels have been stripped place the cookie in the refrigerator to harden (about 10 minutes).
