Christmas Almond Bark Pretzels

Sharing is caring!

Am I crazy to start thinking about Christmas already?  Let me show you how to make Christmas Almond Bark Pretzels.  As the holidays approach, this is one of the recipes I use to start kicking it into high gear to get ready for Christmas. 

I work as an OB nurse, so between that, my family, my house, and my blog, I am BEYOND busy.  BUT…one of my favorite things about the holidays is the treats!  I have a collection of Christmas recipes that I love to make for my family.  This one is the easiest and one of my absolute favorites!  I also love to give them to neighbors and friends for holiday gifts.  🙂

How to Dip Pretzels in Almond Bark

I usually make a lot of almond bark pretzels and then once they dry I stick them in gallon-sized freezer bags until the holidays.  It makes the holidays less stressful prepping treats ahead of time.  These ones are ridiculously easy to make and your kids or grandkids can help!

Ingredients

  • Pretzel twists
  • Almond bark

Instructions

  • First, melt the almond bark (found at the grocery store near the chocolate chips) either in a double-boiler or on low heat in your slow cooker or double boiler, stirring frequently.  (I usually use my slow cooker…I like it better because it is deep enough that when I tap to get the excess almond bark to drip off of the pretzel I don’t have to worry about accidentally re-dipping the pretzels while I  am at it!

  • Once the almond bark is melted completely, you can start dipping pretzels into it (I use a kabob skewer to do it so I don’t burn my fingers).

  • After dipping the pretzels in the almond bark, lightly tap the skewer on the side of the slow cooker to get the excess almond bark to drip off.
  • Place the pretzels on parchment paper to dry.  While they are still wet, I usually sprinkle a little red or green-colored sugar on them to make them look more Christmas-y.  You can either buy colored sugar at the grocery store (near the cake mixes) or else put some white sugar in a sandwich bag with a few drops of food coloring and shake it up to get the same effect.

Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any suggestions for first-time blog writers? I'd definitely appreciate it.

Tamie, I love blogging, but it is a lot of work!!! My best advice: keep at it, even when you are frustrated. Make use of all the great resources out there on how to do things (YouTube videos, blogging groups on facebooks, Pinterest...those are where all of my best tips came from. ) I have a word press board on Pinterest-you can follow me from the home page to pinterest to find it. I got TONS of information from that! Good luck and keep it up!
