Dipped Pretzels

Surely everybody and their brother know how to make these things, right?

So, for those who know what they’re doing, consider this a reminder to get off your bum and make these super simple delectable treats.  And for those who haven’t a clue, no worries, super simple, I promise.

You’ll need:

waxed paper

1 pkg almond bark

1 bag pretzels (the picture shown are thin minis, I do regular size thins as well)

sprinkles optional

In a microwave safe bowl..I prefer my glass mixing bowls, deep bottom..think tall and skinny, rather than fat and wide, melt almond bark according to package directions.  In my experience, that means about 90 seconds on high, stir, then repeat as needed at 15 second intervals.

Once completely melted, dip pretzels.  Carefully, gently shake off the excess and place the pretzels on waxed paper.  If you desire sprinkles of any sort on there, sprinkle them on shortly after dipping, otherwise the bark cools too quickly and the sprinkles will not stick.

That’s it.  Let them cool until the bark hardens.  Then hide them. Or better yet, place them high in a tree, down the road.  That way each time you go snag a handful, you are working off the calories and it all evens out just fine. 🙂

I’m wanting to add a bit of peppermint extract to the almond bark.  Or sprinkle with crushed candy cane.  Yummy eh?
