Dairy Free Candy Melts

Over the years I have learned a trick or two when it comes to making things dairy free. Amazon has these great King David Vanilla Candy Melts that are perfect for this yummy treat. The beauty of it is they are dairy free. They melt up just as great as the regular melts too!

Tips & Tricks to Assemble

Working with candy can sometimes be tricky. A great tip is to keep some melted candy handy. If you are having a hard time tying on your licorice, use some melted candy like glue. It works every time…and it is delicious! You can even use a small bit to help the gummy worms adhere to the other end too!

  • Melt the candy coating according to package directions giving special care not to overheat the candy. If the candy coating is overheated, it will be too thick. You can add 2 teaspoons of vegetable shortening or coconut oil to help thin the candy but do not add any other type of liquid as the candy will seize and harden.
  • Pour candy coating over two-thirds of the pretzel rod and shake gently to remove excess. If applying sprinkles, do so immediately rotating the pretzel rods to coat all sides. Larger sprinkles work best if placed individually.
  • Place pretzel rod on waxed paper or cooling rack. (Cook’s notes: Waxed paper makes for easier release.)
  • Pull Twizzlers into individual strands. Dip one end of a Twizzler into melted candy coating and press against the coated end of a pretzel rod. Once the candy coating is set, use another Twizzler to wrap around the rod, using melted candy to hold the Twizzler in place. Allow to set completely.
  • Tie the loose end of each Twizzler around a gummy worm.
  • Display in an upright container like a small bucket, and serve.


Let pretzel rods dry completely before packaging or serving. Store in an airtight container at room temperature. Placing in the refrigerator may cause the pretzel to soften.
