Olympic Rings Treat on a Stick

Back in December when I spotted round pretzels at the store, my first thought was "Olympic rings!" I ended up using them to make an edible Christmas wreath first, but now I made my rings. Affiliate links below. 

Edible Olympic Rings on a Stick



Working with one color at a time, prepare the Candy Melts according to the package directions. Dip a pretzel and allow the extra to drip off, then set it onto a sheet of parchment. Repeat the process until you have blue, black, red, yellow, and green rings. Let the candy set.

Arrange the rings in order on a clean sheet of parchment paper. You can line up your pretzels next to each other, or with 'interlocking' rings like I did on the bottom left. I used broken pretzel pieces to prop up the blue, black, and red rings on top of the yellow and green ones. In the end, the side-by-side rings were easier to make and stayed together better. 

Light the candle and place it nearby. 

Connect the rings by holding a blue pretzel over the candle for a second or two. Replace it on the parchment, pressing gently against the black and yellow rings. 

Melt the green ring and press it against the yellow and black rings. Finally, melt the red ring and press it against the black and green rings. 

When the joints are solid (about 5 minutes, depending on the temperature), flip the joined rings upside down. Melt some white candy and dip the end of a lollipop stick in it, then press it behind the black, yellow, and green rings. Do as I say and not as I do: I used green candy and it shows through.
