How to Make Chocolate Covered Pumpkins Pretzels

First, cut the green M&M’s in half.

Next, Place the orange candy melts in a microwave-safe bowl, and heat using the defrost setting for 1 minute at a time.

Remove the bowl and stir after each minute, and continue heating until the candy is completely melted and smooth.

Once chocolate candy is smooth, dip each mini pretzel completely into the melted candy, and place them onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

You can use a skewer to hold and dip the pretzels to eliminate any fingerprints on them.
