Two Weeks of Christmas Treats, Day 8: Christmas Pretzel Treats
There's really no recipe involved with either of these treats, but I still just have to share them with you. They're quick, easy, and adorable, and absolutely everyone loves them.
The classic version of this treat is made with a snap pretzel, a Rolo, and a pecan half. Simply top each pretzel with a Rolo, stick them on a baking sheet in the oven until the chocolates begin to soften, and then press a pecan half into the top of each one.
The version that I personally prefer replaces the Rolo with a miniature Reese cup, and the pecan with Christmas M & Ms. They're prepared the same way, but I think this version tastes even better. The pretzel/peanut butter/chocolate combination is just one of my very favorites!
You are literally minutes away from a delicious treat that you can make a lot of in very little time, so these are perfect if you've left your baking for the last minute. What are some other variations for these treats you can think of?
