Peppermint Bark Pretzels #SundaySupper

Peppermint Bark Pretzels

Christmas is less than a week away. You have your presents purchased and wrapped, the menu planned, the house decorated, and everything firmly under control, right?

Me neither. I have bought all my presents, but nothing is wrapped. Maybe we should do a green Christmas and not wrap the presents 😉

Peppermint Bark Pretzels

I have no idea what we are eating. Some kind of red meat most likely. I’ll probably wait until Christmas Eve to decide. Maybe a dessert, but then again, I want to spend Christmas having fun … not trapped in the kitchen.

The house is decorated, though on a lesser scale than some years. As for things being under control … well that never happens, but that’s life, you know?

In case you need a last minute treat for a party, work, school, or even a gift … maybe you just need a reward for all the holiday craziness … check out my Peppermint Bark Pretzels.

Peppermint Bark Pretzels

There’s something about that peppermint bark flavor that I never ever get tired of. I love reinventing it in new ways, and these pretzels are something I will make again and again.

They are fun and easy to make, allowing for a bit of stress relief. Plus, they are easy to make gluten free. I used Glutino pretzels which are amazing! A quick dip in chocolate or carob, followed by one in white chocolate, and a sprinkling of peppermint, and these are done. Sure they have to set, but it only takes a couple minutes and these are ready to eat. Snacking as you make them is encouraged too 🙂

Take a minute to celebrate and enjoy the season with these Peppermint Bark Pretzels!

Total Time: 17 minutes

Yield: About 20 pretzels


20 pretzel twists

10 ounces dark chocolate or carob chips

10 ounces white chocolate

Melt the dark chocolate or carob chips with 1 tablespoon vegetable shortening in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between, until fully melted.

While the white chocolate is still warm, sprinkle with the candy cane.
