Plane Propeller Pretzels

I absolutely love the age my son’s at – 4 years old!

He’s starting to have his own ideas about how things should go, ideas for what he wants to do – and maybe most importantly for this party-obsessed momma – his original ideas for party snacks.

That includes this one for the Planes fan.

J.C. calls it “Zoom Plane Candy.”

And it’s so easy – you guessed it – that a 4-year-old could make it.

On top of that, it takes less than 10 minutes – start to finish.

You’ll Need:

  • Square pretzels
  • Rolos
  • Pretzel Sticks
  • Hershey-ets (or M&M’s if you don’t have peanut allergies to worry about)

Step One: Preheat Oven to 250 Degrees

Step Two: Lay Out Your Square Pretzels

Step Three: Add a Rolo per Pretzel

For one of our batches I thought I’d take the lazy way out, and bought the unwrapped mini-Rolos. As with most things in life, being lazy didn’t pay off. Ha – so just bite the bullet and unwrap the Rolos – it’ll be worth it.

Step Four: Throw those bad boys into the oven

Bake them for 3-4 minutes. While that’s happening, work on step five.

Step Five: Prepare Your Propellers – a.k.a. Pretzel Sticks

All you have to do is break them in half. Try to keep them as similar as possible. You’ll need three halves per pretzel.

Step Six: Create Your Propeller

With melted Rolos sitting atop the pretzels push the pretzel halves into the chocolate.

Step Seven: Add a Nose

We use peanut-free Hershey-ets, but you could also pick up M&Ms if you’re not going to be serving to children with peanut allergies (those pesky things have cross contamination!).

Step Eight: Impress Your Guests

The Planes fans at J.C.’s birthday party spotted the propellers right away. The “Zoom Plane Candy” pretzels were a hit all the way round.
