For the pretzels, set up your work area to work through one color at a time. Fill a small bowl with sprinkles, and set nearby. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper, then set aside.
Add candy melts to a microwave safe bowl and melt in the microwave per package instructions until smooth.
Dip a pretzel in the melted candy, then use a fork to scoop the pretzel out, tapping the fork on the side of the bowl to remove any excess candy. Pretzels should be covered but candy coating should be thin. Drop the pretzel in the bowl with the sprinkles and use a spoon to toss and coat the pretzel. Using another fork, lift the pretzel out of the sprinkles and shake to remove any excess. Place coated pretzel on prepared baking sheet to dry.
Repeat this process until all colors have been used and pretzels are coated.
For the King Cake Dip
While pretzels harden, add cool whip and cheesecake to the bowl of a stand mixer (or a hand mixer + large bowl). Beat mixture on low until combined, about 1-2 minutes.
Keeping speed on low, add in milk and white cake mix and blend for another 2-3 minutes until dip creamy and there are no more clumps from the cake mix.
Add dip to a serving bowl. If you're keeping with the King Cake tradition, bury a small plastic baby within the dip. Traditionally, whoever finds the baby has to host next year's party. Finish by drizzling top of dip with caramel sauce and chopped pecans.
Serve dip immediatley with candy coated pretzels.
