Peppermint White Chocolate Covered Pretzels

With Christmas parties and festivities quickly approaching, I’ve found myself making these Peppermint White Chocolate Covered Pretzels a whole lot. They are inexpensive and simple to make (even if you are by no means a baker/candy maker). And of course, they are great to box up and give as gifts! You could be fancy and splurge on real white chocolate, but I’ve found that vanilla candy coating masquerades pretty nicely for a fraction of the cost.

Makes ~48 pretzels

INGREDIENTS:

  • 4 blocks of vanilla flavored candy coating or white almond bark (see top photo, approx. 1×1.5 inches apiece)
  • ~48 pretzels
  • 1 tsp peppermint extract
  • sprinkles

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Microwave 1 square of candy coating for 40 seconds in a microwave safe bowl. Check and see if it has sufficiently melted with no lumps. If not, microwave in 10 second intervals until it reaches desired consistency. Be careful not to overheat it – it’ll turn lumpy and scorch if it’s heated for too long!
  2. Stir 1/4 tsp of peppermint extract into the melted candy coating.
  3. Grab some tongs (or a fork) and dip a pretzel into the candy mixture. Once it’s fully coated, pull it out and shake it off (just like T. Swift) for a few seconds to get rid of excess candy coating.
  4. Gently place pretzel on parchment paper or aluminum foil.
  5. Repeat process until you’ve used up all the coating in the bowl.
  6. Grab yourself some sprinkles and festive-fy the pretzels to your heart’s content before the coating hardens.
  7. Repeat steps 1-6 until you have made the desired number of pretzels.
