Grinch Candy-Coated Pretzels


I’m still listing my Grinch recipes! Today I have a SIMPLE, Grinch candy-coated pretzels recipe. I LOVE chocolate-covered pretzels. The Grinch look of these pretzels makes them so much FUN to eat.

Grinch candy-coated pretzels only require 3 ingredients. I absolutely LOVE easy recipes that require few ingredients. I’m such a LAZY cook, lol.

Grinch candy-coated pretzels are a definite treat this Holiday season and you'll most certainly show that you have a heart!


  • Light green candy melts
  • Mini pretzel twists
  • 48 red candy hearts


    1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
    2. Pour candy melts into a microwave-safe bowl, and heat on high in 30-second intervals, stirring well between each heating session until fully melted.
    3. Holding one corner of the pretzel, dip into melted candy, then set on parchment paper and place a candy heart on top.


I wish that I would make candy-coated pretzels more often. It seems like I only do it during the Holiday season. You could change the colors of the candy melts (if you weren't in a Grinch mood) and use this recipe any time of year.

This would be a quick and easy treat for a Christmas party. Kids and adults would enjoy the chocolate-covered pretzels. Don’t forget that I have all my other Grinch recipes posted, including my Grinch frappuccino. It is SO good. Don’t miss out on that one.

I found this Grinch rocky road candy recipe. It would be another welcome addition to a Holiday party.

Enjoy all of your Christmas gatherings this year and remember to reach out to friends. The Holiday blues are a real thing!
