Chocolate Pretzel Bites

For day 3 in our 12 Days of Christmas Baking Series I thought we'd try out these Chocolate Pretzel Bites . . . yum! (I'm seriously going to have to start dieting before day thirteen . . . yikes!)  This is one of those oh-so-easy-but-just-about-perfect recipes, so if you haven't made them yet this year they're definitely worth adding to your list. And, since CVS has that great Hershey's deal going on this week, it's a great time to stock up for the Holidays! 

 Here's what they look like before going in the oven . . . yup, sheer salty-chocolate bliss . . .

And here's what your family will look like as they wait for them to cool . . . (my hubby might kill me for including him in the picture, but aren't those two so cute?) :

And finally the recipe so you can try it out too. 😉

  1. I love James!

  2. We made these using miniature rolos……. Also instead of placing and m&m on top, we sandwiched another pretzle on top! Delish!

  3. I make these using the mini pretzels – they end up looking like little reindeer. 🙂 Every time I’ve made them for a gathering, they disappear in no time. And when my father-in-law is in town for the holiday, I make a special batch just for him with dark chocolate kisses and M&Ms.
