I made candy-covered pretzels as favors for my friend's baby shower:
I used Wilton pretzel candy molds and Wilton Candy Melts. The instructions say to use a paintbrush for the candy molds, and I have done that successfully before, but these are too small. For these, I used a toothpick to spread the colored candy into the foot, toes, and letter shapes. I let it set for a few seconds, then filled the mold with a contrasting color, put the pretzel on top and covered it with candy, and then let it set in the fridge. Don't rush them. They set really firm and are very solid when you give them time, maybe ten minutes per batch. Also, you should tap the top of the mold several times to bring the air bubbles to the surface or you will have holes in your candy.
They took hours and were really tedious, to be honest, but I thought the result was worth the time, and my friends loved them. They are very tasty, too
Wilton makes treat bags especially for the pretzels.
