Candy Coated Pretzels

I’ve been wanting to make these for some time.  I didn’t add caramel to them, but next time I will for sure.  A layer of chewy goodness underneath the sweet white chocolate?  Yes please!  As it was, I didn’t have the supplies for caramel, so we stuck with plain old candy coated pretzels.  The kids didn’t know the difference, and they were thrilled!
I used Almond Bark.  I have never used it before, and it was great.  It melted easily and spread nicely.  I had a couple of extra 9-10 year olds on hand and they were happy to help.  We made quick work of the dipping.

I followed the directions on the package for the smaller pretzels and just dumped a handful in the candy and stirred them around until they were coated, then used a fork to spread them out on the paper.  The mound in the back of the picture is the last batch.  The candy was getting stiff and so I just left it in a mound.  The kids didn’t care. 😉

As my little taste tester said, “It’s Da-wicious!”
What fun new things have you been up to lately?
xoxo,
Amy
