m&m and chocolate dipped pretzels

This is the last Christmas treat I'll share...I swear it!

Come rain, come sleet, come snow, come hail, these dipped pretzels never fail!

I am so addicted to these! I love the sweet/salty combination. There really is no detailed recipe for these. All you need is a bag of mini pretzels, a package of chocolate (or white chocolate) almond bark, and a big package of m&ms.

Melt the almond bark on low, stirring until melted. Crush the m&ms in a big ziploc bag and pour them into a bowl. Dip the pretzels into the melted chocolate and then roll them in the crushed m&ms. Place on wax paper or a cooling rack until completely cooled.

My daughter ended up dipping most of these and had such a fun time. She also dipped a few in crushed peppermint candies and those were also fabulous.

I also wanted to take a moment and thank Kallay for the darling award!



I am supposed to list 10 things that make me happy.

one. my family
two. pink trees in the springtime
three. aprons
four. daisies
five. fresh baked bread
six. a surprise Christmas card from a bloggy friend
seven. a warm fire on a cold night
eight. handmade ornaments hanging on the tree
nine. chocolate fudge
ten. the color pink
Can I cheat and list eleven? Good. Eleven. Coffee...really great coffee.

I am also supposed to list 10 blogs that make me happy. Honestly, it would be impossible to narrow my list to ten. Can I list 300? :0)

All of my holiday fun has left me feeling a bit under the weather. I fixed myself up a big bowl of spicy stir fry for dinner with plenty of healthy veggies and I'm hoping it helps!

Have a lovely weekend!

Good idea about the crushed M&M's; I hadn't seen that before so now, of course, I'm going to have copy it. Very pretty indeed!

I'm thinking these would be cute on Valentine's Day. Got to plan ahead.

really good coffee hits the spot for me as well. :D

There is definitely no such thing as too many Christmas treats! I always want ideas for more. I love chocolate-covered pretzels. They are actually an addiction of mine so I'm not allowed to have them around lol. I love the decorations on these. So festive.

Chocolate dipped pretzels.... just be careful with those. Keep a lock on the jar so they don't disappear in one football game :)
