Happy Humpday lovies! I hope your Wednesday is going well so far! Mine has been quite busy since Christmas is in 2 DAYS and my family is hosting Christmas Eve tomorrow night! So my household has been a bit crazy for the past few days, aka my mom running around like a mad woman. Oh and yes I twittered last night she lost her wallet yesterday while doing some last minute shopping :( I really wish she finds it or the person who finds it is a good samaritan and return it. It would be a great Christmas present! I am just hoping for the best!
Last night I mentioned I was going to make some Christmas treats so that is exactly what I did. While watching The Biggest Loser I made some pretzel candy melts! Have you ever heard of them? Well now ya have and I am going to show you how to make these quick and addicting treats ;)
All you need is 3 simple ingredients...
- Pretzel Snaps
- Candy Wafers
- M & M's
Then using a baking sheet place as many pretzels snaps as you can on the baking sheet.Then top each pretzel snap with the candy wafers.Notice how OCD I am ;) I make sure I get the right amount of each color.Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees and place pretzel snaps with candy wafers on top into the oven for 1 minute and 30 seconds, no more or no less!Immediately after they come out of the oven place one M & M on top of each candy wafer. Press the M & M down softly until it touches the pretzel so they are nice and secure. This process must be done fairly quickly before the candy wafers begin to harden.This is what they should look life after! Notice I put the M & M's logo face up and I only put the green M & M's on the red candy wafers and the green M & M's on the white and red candy melts ;) I mean seriously you can't put a red M & M on a red candy melt, it just won't look pretty!
Once you finished topping the candy melts with the M & M's, place the baking sheets in the fridge or outside where it is cold for 5-10 minutes for them to harden. I usually just put them in the garage and then there good to go after a few minutes.
Then place them on a plate and serve! These pretzel candy melts are quick, cheap, and easy to make and they involve very little mess and clean-up!
I must tell you these are super addicting...beware!Being the great older sister I am I put the treats in red bags and tied them up with red and green ribbon for my sister to bring to her teachers for a Holiday present!Then I put the rest in a container and wrapped it up with ribbon for my sister to bring to her Holiday class party.Now a days with all the allergies in schools, they take it very seriously. It is not like when I was in middle school when you could bring in homemade cookies for the class with no problem. But things have changed and if you make anything homemade you must include ALL ingredients in the product. So I made sure to create a lil ingredient list for her to bring in as well!
The smell of Balsam & Cedar fills the air in my house through the Holidays!
Alright so there is the recipe to make pretzel candy melts! If you are looking for a dessert for the Holidays I highly suggest trying these! If you have any quesyions just lemme know :)
