The popular ombre style works beautifully with Candy Melts candy! Just use our candy color sets to create four shades in each color and then start piping the different color bands with Wilton Candy Decorating Bags.
Tint candy. Melt white Candy Melts candy according to package directions. Use candy colors to tint 1 cup a dark shade of orange, blue, pink or green.
Remove 1/2 cup of the dark color and mix with 1/2 cup of melted white candy to make second darkest shade.
Remove 1/2 cup of the second darkest shade and mix with 1/2 cup of melted white candy to make third darkest shade.
Remove 1/2 cup of the third darkest shade and mix with 1/2 cup of melted white candy to make lightest shade.
Decorate pretzels. Place pretzel rods on rack over parchment-lined pan from set. Use melted tinted candy in cut candy decorating bag to pipe darkest shade on pretzel, leaving 1 1/2 in. exposed at end. Tap to smooth and remove excess candy. Pipe another band of the second darkest shade, starting 1 1/2 in. from exposed pretzel end, 1 1/2 in. wide. Tap to smooth. Repeat with third darkest and lightest shades, starting from the end of the previous shade. Chill until firm, 10 to 15 minutes.
