Peppermint Pretzel Rods

I hope all my little bloggers had the most delicious Christmas and Holiday season ever. I don't know about you, but our events are not quite over yet. We've got another Christmas gathering for my dad's side tomorrow night, the traditional meal? Prime rib. Mmm. We also do that on my mom's side, I have the honor of seasoning up and cooking that oh so expensive and mouth watering slab of meat. I must say, it was amazing this year. We only ended up doing a few of our holiday treats this year. With most of us in the house not eating sugary snacks I decided to just make a few plates of goodies and leave it at that. I first made these for my mom's Christmas Tea she used to throw for her interpreter friends. They sure are pretty but I'm not sure how many adults taste pallets enjoy the salty pretzel with the minty crunchy candies in the same bite. I know that my kid sister and the kids at my husband's Christmas event liked them. I supposed as long as someone eats them, they're successful, right? If not, they are a great little display candy!

1 pkg. pretzel rods
1 pkg. white almond bark
1 pkg. white chocolate chips
30 crushed up peppermint candies

Lay out a long sheet of wax paper on your counter or table. Melt chips and bark together in a bowl in microwave for a few minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth. Dip pretzel rod into melted mixture leaving about 1/2 an inch un-dipped. Immediately sprinkle all sides of pretzel with crushed candies. Lay on wax paper to set. Whaaa-la!

  1. These look awesome, but I'm so pepperminted out. I think I'm going to try this, but with dark chocolate and in honor of the boys I'll dip them in rainbow sprinkles. :p
