Candy Corn Pretzel Bites
These candy corn pretzel bites are the perfect way to use up leftover candy corn. Everyone will love the sweet and salty combination of these little bites!
I had such grand plans to be finished at the end of August. You would think that considering we’ve remodeled our entire house at this point I would know better. Obviously not. Now that it’s all coming to an end I’m not sure what to even do with myself anymore? For the past two years my weekends and life have consisted of constant remodels and now.. it’s done.
I feel like I’m going to be a little lost now that our house is finished. For the record, if you really want to test your marriage, remodel an entire house by yourselves. Seriously.
During this whole kitchen remodel though I’ve come to realize how much I love simple recipes. You know the recipes that are just so easy you feel like it’s so wrong, but so right? These little pretzel bites are exactly that type of recipe for me.
When I’m short on time, but want a quick and easy dessert recipe these are the perfect option. Just a few minutes to put them together, a few more minutes in the oven, top them with a candy corn and you’re done! I pop them in the refrigerator after I top them so the chocolate can cool a little faster too. Simplicity at it’s finest, my friends.
I’ve made these little pretzel bites before with M&M’s, which are also a great option for people who aren’t a big fan of candy corn. The inspiration to use the candy corn came from this recipe. There are so many variations you can do with these as well. If you’re not a fan of the Hershey’s hugs try another type of Hershey’s kiss or even rolos. The little candy corn M&M’s would be cute on these too and festive for Halloween. Enjoy!
P.S. – Be on the lookout for my kitchen remodel post in a few weeks. I can’t wait to share it with you all!
Candy Corn Pretzel Bites
- Small square or round pretzels I used snaps
- 1 bag Hershey's hugs unwrapped
- Candy Corn
- Preheat oven to 200 degrees and prepare a baking sheet.
- Line the pretzels up on your baking sheet and top each one with a Hershey's hug.
- Place in the oven for 4-5 minutes, be sure to keep a close eye on them. The chocolate should be soft enough to easily press the candy corn on the top. If it's not quite soft enough, leave them in the oven for another 30 seconds and test them again.
- Once the chocolate is soft enough, remove them from the oven and press one candy corn on top of the chocolate. Press just softly enough to push it down.
- Set aside to cool and store in an airtight container for up to one week.*
I love making simple recipes like this! People love it, it’s cute, and it doesn’t take a crazy amount of effort.
By the way, congrats on the kitchen remodel! That is definitely something worth celebrating!
Thanks so much Mir, I’m so glad it’s almost done!
So glad your kitchen remodel is almost over, Danielle! I can only imagine how that must take a toll on you guys, but it will definitely be worth it in the end! And these pretzel bites are so cute! I make a similar version for Christmas, but I’m loving these festive, fall ones. So fun to just pop ‘n go!
Thanks, Gayle! These are fun to make year round because you can customize them for holidays 🙂
I am such a sucker for anything salty and sweet! These look fantastic!
I can’t wait to see the end result of your kitchen remodel! It’ll all be worth it in the end. 🙂 And these bites are SO up my alley.—I love anything sweet and salty and these little guys are ADORBS. 😀
Thanks, Sarah! Can’t wait to share it with you all too 🙂

Yay! Hope you enjoy them, Medha!
Adorable. So easy to make for parties or to give away as gifts!
Congrats on the remodel. It must feel so great. I remember when we had our kitchen redone last year, it felt so good when it was over. And these candy corns are sooooo cute.
Thanks so much, Kathy!
What an amazing accomplishment to have remodeled your whole house! And to have done this on your own is just amazing… I’m sure that you’ll find your “new normal” in a short time:) Glad to see you back after your break(I’m coming back in 3 days). I love these little bites for this time of year! I haven’t had my candy corn fix yet and am waiting until next week to buy a bag because I know they’ll be gone in our house just like that. Loving the idea of the salty pretzel to balance the sweetness of the candies. Can’t wait to see what you prepare next in your new kitchen!
Thanks so much, Heather. Glad to see you’re back as well, I always love your recipes!
I love sweet and salty!!!And my kids would love these too!!
Glad you are done remodeling your house! I”m sure that is so stressul!
Lovin these little candy corn bites. My 5 years old is sitting with me right now and has demanded that I make these for him!
I’m just glad it’s almost over! I’d say your 5 year old has good taste haha 😉
OMG!! these are so cute and colourful.. Congratulations Daniel on the remodel.. This is the perfect cute little dessert to celebrate.. 🙂
These look so much fun! I love how simple the recipe is too.
Yah for your kitchen finally almost being finished! I don’t know what I would do without a kitchen! I love chocolate and pretzels together and I bet these are so good with the candy corn! I haven’t had any candy corn yet this season, but I think I’m about to change that!
I’ve tried to work around everything with the kitchen, but it’s been such a pain. Just glad it’s almost over! Candy corn is totally necessary this time of year too 🙂
So perfect for Halloween! Sweet and salty snacks are my favorite!
Congrats on the remodel! Those pretzel bites look adorable. The salty and sweet combo is my favorite 🙂
Sometimes a little time off is just what you need. Thanks so much, Mary Frances!
