Amazing Peppermint Pretzels Recipe

I LOVE sweet and salty treats! They are my weakness, for sure! Other than Lucky Licorice. I like that a lot too. If you like licorice, you have to try it!! Most amazing licorice in the history of ever. #truth. I digress. I was into Pumpkin Pretzels this fall and now that its Christmas time, its time to bust out the Peppermint Pretzels recipe!!

These Pretzels with peppermint candy coating and crushed candy canes are the perfect holiday treat!

Peppermint Pretzels Recipe

24 oz White Candy Coating

1 1/2 cup Andes Peppermint Crunch Baking Chips 

20 oz Flat Pretzels {I opted for the flat surface so there’s more surface space which = more peppermint yumminess!}

6 Crushed Candy Canes {optional}

Peppermint recipe for Christmas

  1. Put Candy Coating and Peppermint Chips in large microwave safe bowl.


2. Microwave on High for 2-2.5 minutes, stopping to stir at 1 minute and again at 2 minutes. The consistency should be smooth and creamy.

Pretzels covered in Peppermint Candy Coating. Amazing and easy recipe! only 4 ingredients.

3. Dump in Flat Pretzels and stir somewhat carefully until all pretzels are evenly coated.

4 ingredient Peppermint Pretzels recipe. Salty, sweet amazingness!

4. Pour pretzels onto Parchment Paper and spread them out so they are in a single layer. Then sprinkle crushed candy canes on top while coating is still wet. {It takes about 20 minutes for the coating to harden.}
