Peppermint Stick

 Chocolate Peppermint Pretzels are one of the best and easiest recipes to put together, and perfect for a party, gift or to snack on. With just a few ingredients, a dash of Christmas spirit and a hammer for mint crushing, you'll be good to go. I mentioned on my vlog last Thursday that one of my favorite Christmas traditions is getting some friends to come over and bake for a day; no matter what else shows up on the baking list, this one is always a staple. They're a delicious addition to a cup of hot chocolate or coffee, yum!

Chocolate Peppermint Pretzels

You Need: 
wax paper
cookie sheets
2 plastic bags
small hammer (to crush mints)
2 Bags large pretzel sticks 
1 bag peppermint candies
1 bag chocolate chips or hard shell dipping chocolate
 Andes mints

Line cookie sheets with wax paper, unwrap & crush candies in a bag (I would double bag it to avoid a big mess!) and melt chocolates on low to avoid burning, until you get a thick consistency. Dip the ends of the sticks into the chocolate and let cool for about 30 seconds. Then roll in the crushed peppermints and set on the wax paper. For a twist, melt Andes mints and instead of rolling the stick in the peppermints, dip it in the Andes mints..yum! 

Put a few in a tin or cute bag, and you're set for a hostess gift!

Happy Tuesday!
