Disneyland food is so much fun and when I got this super fun Fruity Pebbles Pretzel treat from Bing Bong’s Sweet Stuff at Disney California Adventure’s Pixar Pier, I knew I had to make a version at home!

Disneyland Copycat Recipe

To make this simple Disneyland copycat recipe, you’ll need just need a few ingredients shown in the photo above. I use the Ghirardelli White Melts, Pretzel Rods, Kraft Caramels or the Bits and some Fruity Pebbles.

You can use either the traditional Kraft Caramels and unwrap each one, or if you can find these “Bits” they’re even more simple!

Place your caramels and water into a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir until melted.

Just takes a few minutes, remove from heat and let cool/set up for 5 minutes or so. Works better when the caramel has thickened slightly.

I used 8-12 Pretzel Rods for this recipe. Feel free to double recipe if needed.

One your melted caramel has thickened a bit, dip and spoon caramel onto 3/4 of the pretzel rod. Place onto parchment paper.

I let these set up for about 15 minutes before moving to the white chocolate.

These are my favorite melts to use. I’ve tried other brands and this one works best. Love Ghirardelli.

Place the entire bag of melts into a heat proof bowl and microwave in increments of 30-45 seconds, until melted. Takes close to 2 minutes depending on your microwave.

Once your chocolate is melted, add the Fruity Pebbles.

Give a nice stir and get ready to spoon this over your caramel covered pretzel rods.

Important NOTE:  Be very careful removing your caramel coated pretzel rods from Parchment paper. I found that putting pressure on the parchment above the top of the pretzel then slowly pulling the pretzel down worked best to prevent breaking the pretzel. If you try to pull up….the pretzel breaks. Slide/pull down slowly to remove from parchment.

Use a spoon to coat the pretzel with white chocolate/cereal and set back on parchment. Wait about 5 minutes and spoon more chocolate for a second coat. Don’t skip this step.

Here’s an example of a double dipped pretzel rod and the one on the right that was just dipped in the chocolate one time. Be sure to coat it once, let set up for 5 minutes, then coat it a second time for best results 🙂

I let them set up completely another 10 minutes and they were ready! So cute and perfect for parties! Love the colors.

Ingredients
  • 8-10 pretzel rods
  • 1 bag Kraft Caramels unwrapped
  • 10 ounce bag Ghirardelli White Melts
  • 3/4 cup Fruity Pebbles Cereal
Instructions
  1. Place pretzel rods onto a large sheet of parchment paper. Place unwrapped caramels or bits into a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add water according to package directions and stir until melted and smooth. Remove from heat and let cool for 5 minutes so caramel thickens slightly.
  2. Dip each pretzel rod into melted caramel. I used a spoon to help spoon caramel on the bottom half of the pretzel. Place coated pretzel rods onto parchment paper. Let set up for 15 minutes.
  3. Place Ghirardelli melts into a heat proof bowl and microwave in 30-45 second increments until melted and smooth. Takes up to 2 minutes according to your microwave. When melted and smooth stir in Fruity Pebbles until combined.
  4. CAREFULLY pull caramel coated pretzel rods downward from parchment. Do not try to pull straight up or pretzel rod WILL break. Trust me, I tried, lol! Just pull down nice and slow and it comes off of the parchment paper.
  5. Use a spoon to help coat pretzel rods with the white chocolate/cereal mixture. Place back onto parchment for about 5 minutes to slightly set up. Take each pretzel rod and dip/coat for a second time. don't skip this step. Looks much better when dipped in white chocolate/cereal 2 times. Let double dipped pretzels set up for another 15 minutes, or until set. Transfer to a serving tray. Use a cellophane bag if desired to get the full effect of how they serve it at Bing Bong's Sweet Stuff. Enjoy!

    Why not coat in white chocolate, and then roll in the fruity pebbles? Mixing them into the white chocolate loses most of the color, which is unfortunate.

      You could totally do it that way if you’d rather. This is how it’s served at Bing Bong’s Sweet Stuff which is why I did it like this. The colorful Fruity Pebbles would be great too 🙂

    Has the look of an exclusive product. It looks delicious. I’d add some more chocolate chips.

    It’s a copycat recipe, so that’s probably the look she’s going for. ? The nice thing about recipes is that you can interpret them however you want and make changes as you see fit. I like the milky rainbow colors personally, but I think it would be pretty the other way too! Try it out. ?

    Hi! I was in Disneyland and I saw that they first dip the rods in caramel, then roll them in fruity pebbles (this may help with the issue of sticking to the parchment paper) and lastly they dip in the white chocolate. Hope this helps!!
