DIY Pretzel Cupcake Toppers - Paint the Gown Red

Every once and a while I make something that comes out exactly how I imagined. These are rare and special moments as finished products are almost always adapted in some way. So when dream actually becomes reality, I get a little excited. Such is the case with today’s DIY. Guys, I am in love with these pretzels! They’re so perfect and adorable, it’s as if they popped right out of the Tootsie Roll wrapper….and they might as well have. Each one takes less than a minute to make! Bound to be the highlight of that Summer carnival party you’re throwing. Ready to roll?!

DIY Pretzel Cupcake Toppers - Paint the Gown Red


  • Tootsie Rolls
  • White Sprinkles
  • Parchment Paper
  • Baking Sheet


Prepare work surface lining a flat baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper. Place Tootsie Rolls into the microwave and heat for 5-7 seconds. Unwrap. Roll out candy into long 3-4” snakes. Wrap each snake into a pretzel; grab both ends and form a “U” shape. Twist ends twice. Fold twisted ends down and press to seal. Decorate each pretzel with sprinkles. Top frosted cupcakes. Serve and enjoy!
