White Chocolate Pretzels | Munchies

16 11 2011

One of my favorite treats for the holidays is white chocolate covered pretzels.  Ohhh nom nom nom.  They’re the perfect combo of salty and sweet. Not to mention, suuuuuper easy to make.

You only need two things: Pretzels and Vanilla Almond Bark

First thing you do is break off about six cubes of almond bark.  Place in a microwave safe container.

Heat for 1 minute, then stir. Repeat until chocolate is melted.

You want it to be smooth but not to the point where it’s runny.  If it is runny let the chocolate cool for a bit before moving on to the next step.

Toss in pretzels, a handful at a time.  Stir gently to make sure the pretzels are covered.  Scoop each pretzel out separately with a fork.  Make sure to let all excess chocolate fall away in the bowl.  You can also knock the fork on the rim of the bowl to knock off extra chocolate.

Place the pretzels on wax paper to set.

They should be good to go after about 10-20 minutes.  Just double check before  you start throwing the in a candy dish or bag.  If the are still  a little wet they’ll end up clumping together.

I decided I wanted to have some that looked a little less sloppy so I hand dipped half the pretzel in the chocolate.  Which also gave the flavor a little more salt to each bite.

Either way, they are d-lish!

Place them in your favorite candy dish and enjoy!

I can’t believe Thanksgiving is just around the corner!  So excited to get to cooking and baking.

What’s your favorite holiday treat?!  Let me know and maybe it will end up on the blog!

‘Til next time…

Week 43: Symmetry

14 12 2010

Oh delicious symmetry…warm, gooey, chocolatey symmetry.  Nom nom nom.  Nothing like baking peanut butter chocolate chip cookies while watching the Biggest Loser Finale.  Yes, it makes me feel a little guilty buuuuuutt I went to the gym today and had fish with broccoli for dinner.  I do believe a cookie with a glass of milk is allowed. 🙂

Are you drooling a little bit?  Thought so. 🙂  They were yummy!
