Need a last minute gift idea? Need something that you can whip up real fast? Holiday Pretzels!!I kind of made up that name, but I think it works. I of course found this idea on the beloved Pinterest website.
So here goes. Pay attention now, it gets complicated . . . just kidding.
Grab a bag of white chocolate chips, white candy melts, whatever is white that’s sweet and will melt. I threw my whole bag of white chips in a microwave safe bowl and melted the chips 30 seconds at a time until all the chips were melted.
Add in your holiday pretzels. I picked up mine at Sam’s Club. I’m sure they have a Costco version. I love that have these cute Christmas shapes: tree, star, and bell.
Gently submerge your pretzels under the melted white chips. You can use a fork to remove the pretzels. I tried to let the white chocolate drip off, that way you could see the shapes of the pretzels better.
I placed the pretzels down and then sprinkled them with some Christmas sprinkles. Walmart was selling the Christmas sprinkles before the chocolate cooled. You will know if your chocolate has cooled down too much. The sprinkles will just bounce off the pretzels. LOL.
Now, I thought I was being clever by placing the pretzels on the cooling rack.I did that thinking that the chocolate would drip off better but it didn’t really.In fact, it stuck more to the rack when it dried, so it was a little harder to remove.
My recommendation is to place them on a piece of wax or parchment paper, then you can easily peel them off once the chocolate has dried.
They are really good, so don’t make them when you are hungry because you probably won’t have enough to give away.
I made a batch and gave them away to some friends. I created some gift tags to attach to whatever plate of goodies you are giving away. Just click gift tags to download and print.
