Technically the title of this treat should be -- Peppermint milk-chocolate drizzled white-chocolate-covered pretzels. But, that seems a bit much to try to fit. So, I made sure to include all the necessary adjectives...peppermint and chocolate-covered. That seems to be the most important and I'm all about Peppermint and Chocolate together! So, Peppermint Chocolate-covered Pretzels, it is.

Peppermint Chocolate-covered Pretzels
- White Chocolate or Vanilla candy coating I used Candyquik
- milk or dark chocolate chips
- Andes peppermint chips in the baking section
- Mini pretzels
- Note: You'll have to judge for yourself how much chocolate and pretzels to use. This is just what we used.
- Melt 1 package of Candyquik in microwave (follow package directions)
- In large bowl or pan, stir melted chocolate with about 3 cups of pretzels (add more if you like)
- Let cool for a couple minutes.
- Pour onto table or counter that has been lined with aluminum foil.
- Sprinkle Andes chips on top and press in gently.
- Melt 1/2 bag of chocolate chips in microwave safe bowl at 30 sec intervals.
- Drizzle with spoon over the pretzels.
- Cool. Break up and store in airtight container. Can be frozen. Should be eaten and enjoyed!!
You can also make a batch of these babies up for your next holiday gathering. Instead of bringing a pie or green bean casserole, offer to bring these. Everyone will be glad you did! Guaranteed winner winner chicken dinner!! For sure!
