Melt the orange candy melts according to the package directions. Melt the yellow candy melts as well. Add both to zip topped plastic bags and trim one corner of each with a pair of scissors. Squeeze the orange to apply to the top of the pretzels.
Squeeze the yellow to apply a mustache like shape to the top. Press in two candy eyes to the candy coating that is still wet. Continue until you have all of the Lorax pretzels that you need to celebrate Dr. Seuss.
Candy melts cure quickly so you may want to make these in small batches. I actually only had red and yellow candy melts so I mixed my own orange. That is totally okay too! Use what you have on hand and make your kids some fun treats.
These Lorax pretzels are actually really, really good and a quick and easy recipe. This sounds like the perfect away to make a party snack to me!
Add these fun Lorax pretzels to your must make list for any Dr. Seuss party that you are planning or that the school is hosting. Everyone will love these quick and easy treats.
