How to make Peppermint Bark Pretzels?
These peppermint bark pretzels are so easy to make, and they only take a few minutes of work. You’ll microwave your white chocolate, until its smooth and creamy. Transfer the chocolate to a tall glass cup or jar. Dip the pretzels into the white chocolate to coat them and twist them around to drip off the extra white chocolate.
Set them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone liner. Melt chocolate chips and scoop melted chocolate into a ziplock bag, snip the corner off, and drizzle the chocolate over the top of the white chocolate.
Crush candy canes into small pieces and sprinkle the peppermint pieces over the chocolate. Allow the sticks to set until chocolate is completely set. This will only take about 30 minutes if you place the tray in the fridge.
And voila, these delicious treats are ready in no time.
Instead of using pretzel rods, you could also use mini pretzels, or waffle pretzels, or whatever smaller pretzels are your favorite. I’d just dip half of the pretzel into the chocolate to make it easier to dip, and so your fingers don’t get chocolatey as you try to dip them.
These peppermint bark pretzel rods are so perfect for munching on whenever you want something sweet. They’re also perfect for serving at a holiday party, or bundling up in some cellophane or plastic bags and delivering to your friends and neighbors as a holiday treat.
