Want a super-adorable, easy-to-make Easter snack? Look no further than these pretzel bunnies and ducks – only a few ingredients will transform these pretzels into a festive treat!


For the pretzel ducks:

yellow Meckens chocolate
orange decorating gel
black decorating gel


Melt the chocolate in the microwave for 2 minutes at a really low setting. Repeat as necessary until it’s melted and smooth.


Start by dropping a small amount of yellow chocolate onto the pretzel:


Lift up your spoon from the chocolate where the “wing” would go.  By lifting the spoon it gives some height and texture so it looks like a wing!


Add a small dot of the black decorating gel for the eye:


Draw a beak over the top little jut out of the pretzel using orange decorating gel.


The Four Easy Steps: Turn the pretzel sideways, fill it with yellow chocolate, lift the spoon to make a wing, draw the eyes and beak and DONE!


For the pretzel bunnies:

white Merckens chocolate
black decorating gel
pink decorating gel


Again, melt a small amount of the chocolate in the microwave for 2 minutes at a time at super low power (20% or so).


Microwave it until it’s smooth and melted.


Add a small amount of chocolate to the inside of the pretzels.  This time lift your spoon at the ears or the cheeks.


The Four Easy Steps: Place out your pretzels, fill them with a small amount of chocolate, draw the ears and nose in pink, and draw the eyes and whiskers in black and DONE!

    Hi! Does the gel ever dry? If so how long does it take?

      This was my concern, too. I’d love to make these and place in treat bags for my students for Easter, but I don’t think the gel will work. You’d probably have to use candy melts and a tooth pick to apply. These are super cute though!
