Santa Pretzel Rods

Santa Pretzel Rods


  • Snyder’s of Hanover® Pretzel Rods
  • Pink candy melts
  • Cake Mate Easy Squeeze, white
  • Cake Mate Writing Icing, black
  • Cake Mate Easy Writer, red
  • Cake Mate Decors, red
  • Red gum drops


  1. In a cup, melt the pink candy melts according to package instructions. Swirl and coat the top of a Pretzel Rod in the melted candy. While still melted, place a gum drop on the top of each rod and stick on the red Décor for the nose; stand in a cup to cool.

  2. Once cooled, pipe the white Easy Squeeze to make a beard and moustache. Squeeze 2 white “eyes” (remember if you wish to smooth out the surface of the “eyes”, simply use a small artist’s brush dipped in water – shake off excess water – and gently brush the area smooth.)

  3. Squeeze additional white Easy Squeeze to form the “fur” trim of Santa’s hat and a little dollop to create the hat’s pom-pom. Stand the rods in a glass and place in the refrigerator for a few minutes.

  4. Using the black Writing Icing, squeeze a little on the white eyes to make the pupils.

  5. Using the red Easy Writer, draw on Santa’s mouth.
