Christmas Treats | Chocolate Peppermint Pretzel Bark Recipe

IMG_6072

Hell yes I’m jumping on the Christmas Bark bandwagon – this stuff tastes SO good, is so easy, cheap and looks fab.  If you can’t bake to save your life or simply don’t want to turn the oven on in these scorching temperatures {are we loving it or hating it?} this recipe is for you!

It’s Ethan’s final day of the school year tomorrow so I sent him off with this plate of yumminess for his teacher.  Keep an eye out for cute plates in the post-Christmas sales, Mum picked this one up last year for about $4!

You will need:

1 bag of bow pretzels {this would make multiple batches}

1 400gm bag of white chocolate buttons

approx 200gm milk or dark chocolate

3 crushed candy canes

  • Place a single layer of pretzels on a baking tray lined with baking paper {this mix will probably only make half a tray}
  • Melt white chocolate in the microwave, stirring frequently until it is really pourable
  • Pour over the pretzels, you should be able to gently spread with a spoon or knife if needed
  • Place flat in freezer for approx 5 minutes
  • Crush candy canes by placing them in a zip lock back and smashing them with a rolling pin
  • Melt milk or dark chocolate in microwave, stirring frequently until it is really pourable
  • spread over the top of the now set white chocolate
  • Sprinkle crushed candy cane on top
  • Freeze for another 5 minutes
  • Break into pieces and serve
