This holiday have fun making these easy Easter treats to share with the kids. These adorably cute Lamb Pretzel Pops coated in mini marshmallows can be made in minutes and are just too cute.
Have you ever tasted a white chocolate dipped pretzel coated in marshmallows?
I did for the first time when I made these little lamb pretzel pops, and I fell in love with them. The combination of salty and sweet in a white chocolate-covered pretzel always makes me happy, and the addition of soft little puffs of marshmallow with their intense vanilla flavor made my mouth do a happy dance.
I also loved how easy these Easter treats were to make. From start to finish, I made 6 of these cuties in less than 10 minutes.
They are so simple to make because I used one of Wilton's Decorating Kits. It comes with the cute little lamb heads and some mini marshmallows.
The marshmallows in the kit (pictured on the right) are smaller than the miniature marshmallows you find in the grocery store, but I had some even smaller dehydrated marshmallows on hand (pictured on the left,) so I swapped them out and used them instead. If you use the ones in the package, you might want to cut them in half.
To make the lamb pretzel pops, you start by melting some white confectionery coating wafers (Candy Melts) and breaking some pretzel rods in half.
Unfortunately, the Wilton Lamb Cupcake Decorating kits are no longer available, as of this update (2021).
You can make adorable candy lamb heads using black candy melts, candy eyes, and small pink heart sprinkles.
You can see the instructions on my OREO Lambs Lollipops recipe post.
You can also make the lamb heads using Peppermint Patties. For the pretzel pops you'll want to use Mini Peppermint Patties.
Check out my Fluffy Sheep Cupcakes post for step-by-step instructions.
You can see that I piped black candy melts to make the lamb's ears.
- Dip a pretzel rod in the white candy coating then set the dipped pretzel on a layer of tiny marshmallows.
- Press one candy lamb head at the top edge of the pretzel rod.
- If you are making your own homemade lamb heads, press one head in the center then attach two ears on either side.
- Press as many mini marshmallows against the pretzel as will stick.
- Allow the pretzel to dry for a minute or so before moving.

Do you sell your products ready made?
I do not. Sorry!
Used this adorable idea for a pastor appreciation treat. They are so cute.Thank you.
I'm so happy to hear that! I hope the pastors appreciated their treats.
These are fantastic! How would you go about re-creating the lamb faces if you did not have a mold?
I'm so glad you asked. I recently posted some of the most adorable Oreo Lamb Pops that are made using black candy melts as the lamb heads. Check them out here - https://hungryhappenings.com/2016/03/oreo-lamb-lollipops-cute-easter-treats.html/
Hi Beth, these look fantastic! How would you go about creating lamb heads that are similar tothose you used from the decorating kit?
These are adorable!
Oh my goodness, they are some of the sweetest little lambs around and how simple they are to make is amazing!
It's fun to be able to make treats so quickly. I'm glad you like them. 🙂
Can you make these up a few days in advance? Can you use almond bark if you don't have candy melts?
Yes, the pretzels will stay fresh for up to a few weeks depending on the freshness of the pretzels. Almond bark will work fine. Enjoy and have a Happy Easter.

You're right Beth! Your little lambs ARE too cute and I'd be doing the happy dance too if I had created these adorable pretzel pops! 🙂
Thanks, Karen. I love when the treats are super easy to make like these lamb pretzels.
