Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 12 -16
Ingredients
  • 10 peppermints, crushed (I used Atkinson’s Mint Twists)
  • 1 pkg (12 oz.) Wilton Candy Melts, Red
  • 1 cup Wilton Candy Melts, Bright White
  • 12-16 pretzel rods, depending on how heavy you coat them
Optional
  • plastic baggies
  • wax paper
Instructions
  1. Unwrap peppermints and place in plastic baggy. With a rolling pin or other hard item, carefully crush the peppermints.
  2. Line pretzel rods out on a sheet of wax paper. In a medium bowl, melt red candy melts as instructed on the product packaging. Pour into a narrow, tall glass or into a plastic baggy. I like using a tall, narrow glass so that I can easily cover the majority of the pretzel rod quickly with one single dip. If you use the plastic baggy method, cut off a tiny section of one corner and gently squeeze to cover the pretzel rods.
  3. In a smaller bowl, melt white candy melts as instructed on the product packaging. Pour into a plastic baggy and cut off a tiny section of one corner. With a back and forth motion, drizzle the white candy melt over the red.
  4. Sprinkle crushed peppermint over the top and allow to sit. Once the candy melt is set, store in an airtight container.
  5. 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.
  6. Repeat this for the remaining pretzels. Allow to harden on the wax paper and then store in an airtight container.
Notes
You can also purchase Crushed Peppermint Candy to save yourself a step.

These Peppermint Bark Pretzel Rods can get pretty messy, so that wax paper totally comes in handy. Once you’re done, simply throw away the wax paper and voila, cleanup is done!
