While perusing Pinterest last night while waiting for the Chocolate Chex Candy to harden, I ran across these adorable Santa Hat Pretzels. Since I had all of the ingredients on hand, I took it as a sign that I just had to make them!
Simple Santa Hat Pretzel Candy
- Miniature pretzels
- White almond bark or candy melts
- Red sugar sprinkles
- Miniature marshmallows
Melt almond bark or candy melts as instructed on the packaging. Dip miniature pretzels half way into melted chocolate and then immediately into a bowl of sprinkles, leaving some white showing. (*Note: before you think you can get off easy and just "sprinkle" the sprinkles... it doesnt work. Trust me, I tried.) Cut mini marshmallow in half and place sticky side down to make the "puff" at the end of Santa's hat. Place gently on greased cookie sheet or wax paper and let cool.
These were absolutely the cutest, quickest, easiest candy I have made all year. They are perfect for gift giving, Christmas parties, and to snack on all holiday season!
