Easy Minions Pretzel Candy Recipe

I have an easy Minions pretzel candy recipe that’s a little off the beaten path for you today. Minions inspired recipes are all over the place lately, but most of them require you to make a true-to-life replica of those adorable little guys. This easy Minions candy recipe is different. It’s quick and easy, and it’s Minion-ish enough to satisfy the kids’ eyes and their bellies. Post contains affiliate links, but all opinions are my own.

Easy Minions Pretzel Candy Recipe


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Place your pretzels on a baking sheet.
3. Place a candy melt in the middle of each pretzel.
4. Bake in oven for 5 minutes or until candy begins to melt (this goes quickly so keep an eye on it).
5. Immediately add a candy eye to each pretzel. Do this while the candy melts are still soft enough to press the candy eyes into.
6. Let cool.
7. Serve and enjoy.
