By now you might be wondering how I got the spiral effect on the pretzel.  My secret ingredient is….CARAMEL!  Not the kind you have to make but good old store bought!  Read below to see how I take store bought caramel and several different colors of candy melts to create not only the tastiest but incredibly beautiful pretzel treats!

I discovered something amazing for candy melts and that is a candy melting pot from Wilton!  It makes melting candy so easy!

Get all your candy melted and ready.  Pour candy in medium microwave safe bowls.  Heat one at a time at 60% one minute, stir and continue in 30 second increments until candy is melted and creamy.

In a small microwave safe bowl heat FOUR caramels on high for 10 seconds.  I only worked with four at a time.

This is just the right amount of time to allow the caramel to be molded into a 12-inch snake shape.

Roll heated caramel on a piece of parchment paper to 12-inches.

Starting at the top of the pretzel rod, wrap the caramel around.

Dip pretzel in the white melted candy.  Only tap off a little of the candy.  You want this layer to be thick.

Add a drizzle of pink then turquoise and yellow.

Tap and turn the pretzel always going the same direction.  The colors will start to create a marbling effect.  If you see a spot that needs more color then go ahead and add it and continue tapping and turning.

Place in a container (mine was filled with rice) in the freezer for 10 minutes or until hardened.  Pour some of the pearl dust into a small container and brush some onto the pretzel.

Unicorn Pretzels

Ingredients

  • Kraft chewy caramels (4 per pretzel)
  • Wilton white, bright pink, turquoise and yellow candy melts (approximately one bag of white and a half a bag each of the pink, turquoise and yellow for 6 pretzels)
  • pretzel rods
  • Wilton white pearl dust
  • small paint brush

Instructions

  1. Pour candy melts into medium size microwave safe bowls.
  2. Heat each color 1 minute at 60%, stir and continue heating in 30 second increments until creamy.
  3. Do this procedure for each color.
  4. Take wrapping off 4 caramels and place in a small microwave safe bowl.
  5. Heat on high 10 seconds.
  6. Roll caramel into a 12-inch long snack.
  7. Starting at the top of a pretzel rod; wind the caramel around.
  8. Dip or spoon the white candy over the pretzel making sure to fill in between the caramel and pretzel; tap off some of the excess but not much. You want to leave a thick coating.
  9. Drizzle the pink, turquoise and yellow over the white.
  10. Turning the pretzel and lightly tapping at the same tip will create a marble effect.
  11. If you see a spot that you would like more color in, go ahead and add more and keep turning and tapping.

    • Hahaha Carmen. I totally know what you mean. I was afraid of that too and was very pleased when I took my first bite and the caramel melted in my mouth without sticking to my teeth. 🙂 You can decorate these pretzels days in advance.

  1. These are so pretty.

    Question do you let the white chocolate dry before you marbleiz it or do you do it while the white chocolate is still wet.
