March Madness Pretzel Bites

I have included some links to ingredients for your convenience.

Ingredients needed for Pretzel Basketball Treats:

These basketball pretzel bites start out like most all my other pretzel bites do.  Preheat your oven to 275 degrees F.   Line a baking sheet with your pretzels.

Next you will top each pretzel with an orange candy melt.

Basketball Treat Ideas are a perfect snack for March Madness

Bake for 10-12 minutes.  Watch them closely.  You want the candy melt melted onto the pretzel but not gooey and flowing all over the place.  You want them to retain their circular shape.

Next you will want to let them cool completely.  I recommend also popping them in the freezer for 20-30 minutes in order to get them set back up.  This will make the next step much easier!

Using your food safe writer (FINE) draw on the basketball lines.  If your marker is not drawing and is just scraping the candy melt away that means your melt is not hard enough.  Pop back in the freezer for more time, then try again.  It writes on them great when they are really solid.

Basketball Pretzel bites are delicious and easy and perfect after game team treat.
