18 Square Pretzels (1.5g of carbs each)

~6 tbsp white cake Icing (I used Betty Crocker Fluffy White: You will use I tsp = 2.5g of carbs for each flower)

1 – 200g bag, Spring Pastels M&M’s (You will use 7 pieces = 4 of carbs for each flower)


  1. Place 18 square pretzels on a freezable tray or cookie sheet.
  2. Spread 1 tsp of white cake icing evenly on each pretzel.
  3. With the printed “M” side down, press one pastel-coloured M&M in the centre of the icing. This is your flower centre.
  4. Choose a different colour of M&M’s for the flower petals. With the printed “M” side down, press 6 pieces into the icing, in a ring around the centre.
  5. Place in the freezer for 20 minutes to set the icing, and ENJOY!
