If you love basketball then odds are you love March Madness! These Basketball Treats are the perfect March Madness treat for game watching and bracket making! Basketball Pretzel Bites are so easy and even more delicious!
Freddy is a huge basketball fan. He loves college and NBA. I am often subjected to watching game after game and that has in turn pretty much forced me to love basketball as well. It could be worse though, I guess so I roll with it!
If you have a basketball lover in your house you will want to pin this fun basketball treat! This is not only great for March Madness get togethers but also if your kid’s play basketball! These fun treats are the perfect addition to any after game treat or end of the season basketball party
I have included some links to ingredients for your convenience.
Ingredients needed for Pretzel Basketball Treats:
- Bite Size Pretzels (I prefer the square ones)
- Orange Wilton Candy Melts
- Black FINE Food Writer Marker – Get the set if you are sports fan! I have more fun sports pretzel bites up my sleeve
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.
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.
Here are some more pretzel bites that are a hit!
