Here is the one thing I love and hate about the holidays: candy, sweets, treats. I love to eat them, but I hate to try and fit into my jeans a few weeks later. I mean, how could you pass up a bowl full of these Christmas Candy Pretzel Treats? I find it unavoidable and most certainly cannot stop myself. I have the worst will power during the holidays. It depresses me.
However, who can say no to this happiness on a pretzel? These are also another fun and quick treat that would be great served at the holiday parties and enjoyed by almost all. (There are some with a great will power.)
Christmas Candy Pretzel Treats
What you will need:
- a bag of Tiny Twists pretzels
- a bag of candy melts
- 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
- wax paper
Step 1: Add your candy melts to a microwaveable safe bowl and the vegetable oil and heat on high in the microwave for 1 minute. Remove and stir. Place back in the microwave and heat on 30 seconds, remove and stir, and continue this cycle until the candy melts are fully melted. Usually about 1.5 minutes.
Step 2: Place a large sheet of wax paper on a cookie sheet.
Step 3: Dip your pretzels, one at a time, in the melted chocolate candy. Place on the wax paper. Do this for all of the pretzels you would like to make.
Step 4: Once you have your candy coated pretzels on the wax paper, open up the sprinkles and cover your coated pretzels.
Step 5: Allow to fully harden before storing in a candy dish or gift bag, about 30 minutes.
I think this awesome treat takes all of 10 minutes to make from start to finish. It’s so easy, and I promise you they are a yummy sweet treat. I love the salty pretzel and sweet tastes all mixed together.
Make some of these Christmas Candy Pretzel Treats when you are invited to a party, or just for fun around the house. Everyone will love you!
