Christmas Present Pretzels

I’m delighted to welcome my friend Kimberly as a guest today! She’s got a fabulous and simple holiday treat that I know you’ll love!

Christmas is my favorite time of the year, and I’m so excited to share my yummy creation here with Kristen! I’m Kimberly from Stuffed Suitcase, and I’m here to show you how to make some Christmas Present Pretzels for this holiday season. Chocolate covered pretzels are one of my favorite treats, and they’re great for your holiday travels. Just the perfect sweet and salty mix, and easy to store and pack. Last year I made large batches of the reindeer noses (an idea I found on Pinterest). This year, I decided to create my own sweet & salty pretzel treat!

These Christmas treats are very easy to make. First, you need to gather your supplies. I bought my square “waffle” butter snap pretzels at Target. The butter is a strong flavor, so you might want the plain snap pretzels if you’re not a butter fan. Then grab some semi-sweet chocolate chips and Christmas m&m’s.Pretzel_Presents_Ingredients

 

I wasn’t sure how easy it would be to cut the m&m’s, but they split quite easily. Using a sharp paring knife worked great. To melt the chocolate chips, I used a melt chocolate function on my microwave, but you could probably use a lower power if you don’t have that function. Or a double boiler. If you’re melting in the microwave, stir often. It won’t look like it’s melting, but once you stir it you’ll see it’s ready.

Next you’re ready to dunk the top pretzel edge in the chocolate. I did an angled dip so the chocolate got on one side edge and the top but not the back side. Then remove the pretzel and lay it on a flat surface. Place two m&m halves along the top edge into the chocolate, then place two more half m&m’s angled on the front. Let them sit for a while for the chocolate to firm up. You can put them into the fridge to hurry it along.

Now you’ve got great little Christmas Present Pretzels to give friends, pack for roadtrips, or shove into your own mouth.

    I can’t even handle how cute these are! Totally pinned this and going to try it. Have you ever tried CandiQuick? I love that product for chocolate dipping because it comes in it’s own little tray that you just pop in the microwave. No bowl to clean up, which I love.
