Christmas is just around the corner! It’s time for giving, celebrating, and remembering. It’s crazy, watching people shopping for gifts. They don’t really look happy at all. I think they see it more as an obligation than a present from the heart. They just need to sit down and take a breather, have a cup of coffee, and just think.
One way to counter the scramble is to make a homemade gift. Even better yet, an edible gift. Because honestly, people love to eat, yes? And the end of the year is the best time to indulge (;
These are really simple. AND they look stunning in the right box/wrapping paper/ sprinkles. Plus they’re tasty.
This is going to be a three part Christmas gift collection. I’m going to be showing you how to make three different Christmas treats: chocolate-dipped pretzel rods, peppermint chocolate bark, and mint chocolate cookies. They’re all very, very good. Enjoy!
Chocolate-dipped Pretzel Rods
- pretzel rods
- toppings: nuts, sprinkles, crushed peppermint, etc.
- Line a baking sheet with wax paper. In a double boiler, melt your chocolate.
- Dip your pretzel rods into the chocolate, then sprinkle with your toppings.
- Place onto the wax paper. Place the baking sheet into the fridge or on the countertop until chocolate hardens, about 30 minutes.
