Don't be fooled by these treats. I haven't been hard at work making Christmas treats the past few weeks; in fact, the only goodies I've made have been of the 'no-bake' genre. These chocolate + peanut butter dipped pretzels exceptionally easy to make, as you might have guessed. Simply melt chocolate in a double-boiler, add a couple spoonfuls of peanut butter (to taste) and stir until melted. Then, dip the pretzels halfway in the chocolate/peanut butter mixture and set on parchment paper and refrigerate to set.
One may look at these Flipz knockoffs and wonder why I consider these a holiday dessert. My mom, sisters, and I have been making these half-dipped pretzels at Christmas time for as long as I can remember. Sure, we always baked/decorated the obvious, frosted sugar cookies, but I loved that we accompanied the expected with some unexpected treats. We also always make pecan shortbread and saltine toffee cookies along with these chocolate + peanut butter dipped pretzels, just to name a few.
Do you have any unexpected holiday traditions?
