White Chocolate Peppermint Covered Pretzels

Welcome to day #2 of Christmas Week, co-hosted by Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Jen of Juanita’s Cocina. Today’s theme for Christmas Week is “Peppermint Surprise”. Make sure you visit all the participating bloggers today to see what special dish they whipped up for you.

I actually am not a big fan of minty food items. Mint belongs in gum, toothpaste, and mouth wash – that’s about it. No candy canes for me. Occasionally I will enjoy a small Andes mint chocolate after a meal, but it is a rare event. Therefore, today’s theme was a bit of a challenge for me. I decided to go with a simple favorite of mine, chocolate covered pretzels. Whenever I make something that involves melting chocolate, the remnants of chocolate are almost always used up by dipping pretzels into it as a nice treat for later. Chocolate covered pretzels are also really easy to decorate for the holidays by adding sprinkles, or in this case crunched peppermint.



8 oz. white chocolate candy melts

1 bag mini pretzels

Peppermint crunch (or finely smashed candy canes)


  1. Line a large baking sheet with wax paper. Set aside.
  2. In a double boiler melt the chocolate (or microwave), stirring frequently until no lumps remain. Remove from heat.
  3. Holding one corner of a pretzel, dip into chocolate and lightly shake off excess chocolate. Place on wax paper and sprinkle with peppermint pieces. Repeat with remaining pretzels.
  4. Refrigerate for at least 10 minutes, allowing the chocolate to harden.
