Smurfs Pretzel Candy Recipe

We had a vision for a Smurfs pretzel candy recipe that didn’t go exactly as planned.

I would say it’s a perfect example of a magical mess.

What started out looking a bit horrifying, we turned into a pretty cute candy Smurf head.

Shelley and I are on a mission to create Smurfs-inspired recipes.

A cute pretzel candy recipe is a simple addition, right?

Well, not so much for us.

The first attempt at dipping pretzels into candy melts resulted in something a little frightening.

It looked a little more like the mask from Scream than a cute Smurf head.

Our first Smurf Pretzel heads were a bit frightening

The next attempt matched our vision a little better.

However, the dark blue candy melts get tiny white spots after baking.

The candy melts were brand new, so just keep this in mind that it might happen to you, as well.

It wasn’t a deal breaker for us, though.

Our Smurfs have freckles, and it’s kind of cute. 😉

  1. Arrange 24 mini pretzels on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  2. Take 24 mini pretzels and cut ⅓ off to make the hat.
  3. Arrange “hats” on the whole pretzels so that they touch.
  4. Cut 12 bright white candy melts in half.
  5. Place 1 dark blue candy melt on each intact pretzel for the face.

  6. Place ½ of a bright white candy melt on each cut pretzel hat, making sure to overlap the blue a little bit. (You need the candy melts to slightly overlap so that the pretzels stay together.)
  7. Bake in oven for 5 minutes at 350 degrees or until candy begins to melt (this goes quickly so keep an eye on it).

  8. Slide parchment paper off the hot cookie sheet and while the candy melts are still hot, gently press white sprinkles into blue area for eyes and with a toothpick, or butter knife, smear the white candy onto the blue to make sure they harden together–also makes it look more like a Smurf hat.
  9. Let cool.
