Peppermint Pretzel Candy recipe – crunchy pretzels topped with peppermint Kisses candy and M&M’s makes for a festive holiday treat that is fun to make and eat!
It is a tradition in our house, to make Pretzel Candy treats for Christmas. Each year, we create an assembly line and with a kid on each station, we make a ton of pretzels topped with chocolate, caramel, M&M’s or sprinkles. They are so fun to make and eat and even pack in treat bags and give to family and friends. Last year, our Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Bites were super popular but this year we went with peppermint as the flavor theme. Peppermint is a must for Christmas and I am absolutely obsessed with peppermint chocolate treats!
These Peppermint Pretzel Candy are colorful, festive and delicious! Crunchy, slightly salty, pretzels are topped with Peppermint Kisses are a fun addition to any holiday treats table.
HOW TO MAKE CHOCOLATE PRETZEL CANDY
One of the easiest treats for the holidays is definitely pretzel candy. Crunchy pretzels are topped with Kisses chocolates and baked for just a few minutes so the chocolate melts. Then place a red or green M&M on top and let the bites set. Arrange bites on a festive platter and display on your holiday table. You can also use Rolo caramel candies or dark chocolate or even filled Kisses chocolates and different color M&M’s. Just make them fun and festive!
