Sweet and salty flavors combine in a four-ingredient recipe. The dipped pretzels are so pretty and delicious!

Ingredients

6
oz vanilla-flavored candy coating (almond bark), cut into pieces
2
tablespoons shortening
2/3
cup finely crushed peppermint candies (24 candies)
12
(8 1/2-inch) pretzel rods (from 11-oz package)

Steps

  • 1 Line cookie sheet with waxed paper. In 2-quart 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.)
