Expert Tips

Take care when inserting pretzel into granola bite to avoid crumbling. It may help to poke a hole using a toothpick, and use some of the glaze on the tip of each pretzel to help stick to granola bite.

May also use Nature Valley™ protein soft baked blueberry almond granola bites.

Use your creativity when decorating. If desired, add food color to the glaze for more orange color.

Candy melts are great alternative for dipping the pumpkin bites. Use orange candy melts, and microwave as directed on package. Dip each granola bite, allow to set, and decorate as desired.
