Here are a few more snow pictures from over the weekend:
Look at all the snow on our roof!!!
On Saturday Jason decided to go see how deep the snow was: (over his knees!!!)
On Sunday we were basically snowed in again, but I (foolishly) drove to Walgreens to pick up our Christmas photos — and got stuck on the way 😦 Thankfully a few people stopped to help push my car — that was so nice of them! I was planning on going to a Cookie Baking party, but that got postponed until next weekend…so I decided to do more holiday baking on my own.
Chocolate Dipped Holiday Pretzels
Here is what you need: pretzel rods, chocolate chips and candy. I used white chocolate chips, M&Ms, peanuts and candy canes.
The “recipe” is so simple: crush M&M’s, peanuts and candy canes (or whatever candy or nuts you are using). Melt chocolate in the microwave, roll pretzels in the chocolate and dip in the candy (or sprinkle the candy on, either would work) and set on parchment paper to dry. After a few minutes I moved them all into the freezer to chill for an hour or so.
Do you like my cute Mason jars? I bought them to use as candleholders, but they seemed like a good idea to hold my pretzels for a while 🙂
Jason was my taste tester and he liked the pretzels very much! The salty/sweet taste was apparently very good! You can check out the Christmas Crack I made on Saturday if you want another salty/sweet treat idea.
Are you in the holiday spirit yet? Are you finished with your holiday shopping?
I have been wanting to make choc dipped pretzels for a few weeks and keep seeing them everywhere and yes, they are so easy…and i just need to get on it!
I love using glass jars for everything from storing my bulk bags of nuts to leftovers in the fridge to holding gifts. I go thru quite a few glass jars, i.e. i have a vegan mayo addiction and once the label is off and they are washed, they look good as new and are perfect. But yes, if I wasnt cheap I’d buy real mason jars from time to time, too 🙂
That snow…again, sooooo glad it’s you and not me in the blizzard!
I made chocolate dipped pretzel rods last week, too! I dipped mine in white chocolate and rolled them in crushed Oreos for a “Cookies n’ Cream” variety 🙂 The students in my office have been preparing for their finals, and these treats were devoured in no time. I love your idea of using red and green M & Ms to give it a more holiday look.
Hope you get out from under the snow soon! Unfortunately, it just arrive here last night…
I have BEEN in the holiday spirit!! We had snow like that here last year…LOTS of it, which is not that typical for Philly. We get some, but not like a few feet of it, it was up to my waist last year! I am craving another one soon though!
