Peppermint Bark Pretzels

Every year I nearly break down the doors at Williams-Sonoma to get my hands on some of their Peppermint Bark. This time of year, it’s my favorite treat!

It’s so, so good, y’all!

This year, things have changed for the family and we are being extra careful about our health. So while I still want to enjoy my favorite treats, I have to find other ways I can enjoy them. Bringing 1 pound tins of Peppermint Bark in the house probably isn’t the best idea for us!

That’s why I decided to make some Peppermint Bark Pretzels!

Peppermint Bark Pretzels! Enjoy the wonderful peppermint flavor with these oversized pretzel twist and crushed peppermint.
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 13
  • 7 peppermints, crushed (I used Atkinson’s Mint Twists)
  • 1 cup Wilton Candy Melts, Bright White
  • 13 large pretzel twists
  • plastic baggy
  • wax paper
  1. Unwrap peppermints and place in plastic baggy. With a rolling pin or other hard item, carefully crush the peppermints. Separate 2 tablespoons for mixing with the candy melt and reserve the remainder for topping.
  2. In a medium bowl, melt candy melts as instructed on the product packaging. Once melted, add two tablespoons of crushed peppermint to the melted candy and stir.
  3. Lay out a sheet of wax paper. Create an assembly line with pretzels, candy melt, and crushed peppermint. Begin by dipping one pretzel into the melted candy mixture. I used a plastic knife to push the pretzel down into the mixture to ensure that it was completely coated. Use the plastic knife to remove it from the mixture and place on the wax paper. Sprinkle with crushed peppermint.
  4. Repeat this for the remaining pretzels. Allow to harden on the wax paper and then store in an airtight container.
You can also purchase Crushed Peppermint Candy to save yourself a step.

See, y’all! So, so simple! And the result is an amazing, festive treat perfect for the holidays!
