I know you know what time it is. (If you immediately said Adventure Time, you get two million extra points for being super awesome)
It’s time for peppermint. Peppermint flavored every thing. Literally.
If you haven’t been on Pinterest, then maybe you haven’t seen it. A few weeks ago I started seeing it and I just groaned. Why can’t there be other flavors for Christmas?! Then I was at the store and saw the package of Peppermint Crunch… I took back everything I said.
So my first experiment was pretzel sticks. One of my holiday traditions is to make chocolate covered pretzel sticks, and I did just that. I passed them around to several friends and it was a hit. They are sweet and salty crunchy perfection. The best of both worlds!
I’m kind of stuck in writers block today… I haven’t blogged in a while, so I’m going to leave it at this and hope you enjoy the beginning of a few weeks of peppermint crunch recipes!
- Optional toppings:
- 1 bag of pretzel rods
- 1/2 a brick (12 net wt oz) white almond bark
- Peppermint Crunch pieces
1. In a saucepan on medium-low heat, slowly melt the almond bark. Do not melt too quickly or it will burn. Lay out wax paper on a counter or a few large cookie sheets. Set aside.
2. Once the almond bark is fully melted, dipped/roll/coat the pretzel rods in the bark and gently tap the excess off. To decorate with Peppermint Crunch pieces, coat the wand while the bark is still wet. Place on the wax paper and let dry completely.
