Almond Bark for dipping
Chocolate Chips for adding to almond bark and dipping
Peppermint candy or candy cane
Melt almond bark in glass covered bowl in microwave for 2 minutes.

Leave covered for a few minutes.
While your almond bark is melting, put peppermint candy into a ziplock bag.
Cover with a towel.
Pound the towel covered candy.
Pound again, with all your might.
Finally, put your powdered candy into a bowl.
Dip pretzels into almond bark.
Set dipped pretzels on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
Sprinkle dipped pretzels with powdered candy.
Add chocolate chips into the remaining almond bark and melt for 2 minutes.
Repeat process to make chocolate dipped Christmas Pretzels.
When they are dry, fill your containers for gift giving.
Be sure to separate out the broken ones.
Enjoy these for yourself. They make a yummy snack.
Here is a frugal secret.
If you buy your ingredients at a dollar type store, or on sale, these are very cheap to make.
This recipe will make four nice tins of pretzels, and it costs under $3 a piece per gift, including the tins.
Or reuse your previous tins, and this gift would cost $1 a piece.
Now that is a lot of fun, plus something special to give away, for very little money.
Oh, Christmas Pretzels are so yummy.
So sweet and crunchy.
Merry Christmas !
