Hi UCreate readers! My name is Crystal and I'm the voice behind A Pumpkin & A Princess. I'm a stay at home mom to three cuties and wife to one amazing guy. On my blog I love sharing quick, easy, and inexpensive creative ideas.
I'm thrilled to be here today sharing one of my favorite holiday treats. I've been making chocolate dipped pretzels as holiday gifts for about 8 years now and I never get tired of making them. Today I'm going to show you how to make peppermint bark pretzels.
Semi-Sweet Chocolate chips or CandyQuik
White Chocolate Chips
Crushed Candy Canes
Begin by melting the chocolate chips over a double boiler. I like to use Ghirardelli chocolate chips but another great option is CandyQuik which can be found in the Target baking aisle. Once the chocolate is melted dip the pretzels in and use a fork to take them out. The fork helps avoid big clumps of chocolate piled under the pretzel. Give them a light shake to remove any excess then place on a wax paper lined baking sheet. Allow the chocolate to harden.
Melt the white chocolate chips in a separate bowl then place into a piping bag. Snip the tip of the bag and drizzle over the pretzels. Immediately sprinkle the crushed candy canes on top. Allow chocolate to harden a few hours or place in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes.
They are so easy to make and perfect for neighbor gifts. They can also be made in large batches, making them one tasty and inexpensive gift to give this holiday season.
