One of our favorite things about this recipe is how easy it is!

PRETZELS A bag of bite-sized pretzels is called for but feel free to use pretzel twists or other shapes and sizes of pretzels.

PEPPERMINT KISSES White candy cane kisses are delicious but you really can make these with any kind of kisses (or chocolates).

MILK CHOCOLATE Dipping chocolate and some crushed peppermint candies make are perfect for dipping pretzels. Dark chocolate can be substituted as well!

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 200°F.
  • Place 40 pretzels on a baking sheet and top each with a peppermint kiss, bake for 5 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and immediately press a pretzel on top of each of the kisses and allow to cool.
  • Once they have set, melt the chocolate wafers on 30-second intervals, stirring between each, until smooth.
  • Dip each of the pretzel bites in the chocolate and place on parchment paper to set. Sprinkle with the crushed peppermint candies before the chocolate has set.

Recipe Notes

If you don’t have melting wafers, you can use chocolate chips instead and add ½ teaspoon of coconut oil or vegetable oil to it.
Store in a cool area in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks or freeze for up to 3 months.
I used Snyder’s SNAPS pretzels.
