Neighbor Christmas Gift – Candy Coated Pretzels

IMG_0350This year we made candy-coated pretzels to give to our neighbors as a little Christmas gift.  It is quite simple to make and tastes really yummy!

Materials:

  • 2 packages vanilla almond bark
  • 1 lg. bag Holiday Pretzels
  • assorted sprinkles & colored sugars
  • treat bags or boxes
  • large mixing bowl & spoon
  • microwave safe bowl/double boiler

Directions:

Spread two large pieces of wax paper on counter/table.  Melt the almond bark according to package directions.  We did ours in the microwave, but I think I’ll do it on the stove next time so that we can do both packages at the same time.  You will want two packages of candy coating for one bag of pretzels.  Dump pretzels into a large bowl.  When candy coating is fully melted, pour it over the pretzels.  Fold coating into pretzels so that they are all covered.  Dump mixture onto the wax paper and spread out in a thin layer.  While coating is still warm, sprinkle with Christmas-colored sprinkles and sugars of your choice.  Allow to set.  Once it is set, simply break into pieces and put in treat boxes or bags.
