This recipe came from my Holiday Cookbook from Pillsbury®. They are as delicious as they are beautiful and would make a welcome addition to any holiday package or holiday table!

Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Start to Finish: 45 Minutes
Servings: 12 pretzels

What you'll need:
  • 6 oz vanilla-flavored candy coating (almond bark), cut into pieces
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 2⁄3 cup finely crushed peppermint candies (24 candies)*
  • 12 (8½-inch) pretzel rods (from 11-oz package)
Line cookie sheet with waxed paper. In medium saucepan, melt almond bark and shortening over low heat, stirring occasionally. Pour into 11x7-inch (2-quart) glass baking dish or other shallow dish; carefully set baking dish in hot water to keep almond bark soft. (Do not get any water into almond bark.)
