Unicorn Decorated Pretzels + Video — 32 Comments

    • 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.

  2. Love this idea…
    My question is,do you think the caramel could be molded onto the pretzel enough to be the horn for a unicorn cake?! If so,do you have suggestions on how to accomplish this task.

    • Yes Sheila, I would use the same technique I used for these unicorn pretzels. The great thing about this caramel is that it’s thick and pliable. Once the melted candy hardens the caramel stays in place.

  3. This is a great idea! How many pretzels do they make? My daughter is having a bake sale for a fundraiser. Just wondering if it’s cost effective. Thanks!

    • Hi Nikki, This is just a rough estimate. Since the base color is white you can safely estimate covering 12 pretzel rods. With the other colors only being drizzles I think double. So, 2 12 ounce bags of white and 1 each of the other colors should yield about 24 pretzel rods. All of that depends on how much of the melted candy is used for the marbling effect. Sorry I can’t be more precise. ♥

  4. This is a great idea, & using the Carmel is brilliant. However, you say there’s a video at the bottom, and yet, no video. Am I missing it somehow? Would love to see it in action for some of the steps!

    • When you drizzle the colours on the pretzel, what did you do with the chocolate that is left on the parchment paper? It seems like there is a lot of waste.

      • Hi Yvonne,
        Yes, there is some waste. If you’re planning on using this technique, watch for candy melts to go on sale. I get each bag bag for $2.50. You can decorate at least 20 pretzels. You kind of need to go into it with a “this is a party treat” attitude.

  5. I can’t get my caramel to not sag or move. If I lay them flat it says, it I stand them up they droop… what am I doing wrong?

    • Hi Jen, I’m sorry you’re having a hard time. It’s hard to know what’s going on without being there…Here are a few tips that I hope will help. When heating the caramel make sure it’s not too hot and you can roll it into a snake shape. After wrapping the caramel around the pretzel, press it into the pretzel a little. Also, when adding the base coat of the melted candy make sure in between the caramel is filled, the pretzel is coated past the caramel ,and that the melted candy isn’t too hot. For quick hardening, don’t forget to place them in the freezer. Good Luck! I hope these tips helped. ♥
