Candy Bar Pretzel Bites are easy to make Christmas cookies. This recipe would be perfect for a cookie exchange!
There are so many kinds of Christmas cookies to make and so little time! We love making ones that take a long time like frosted sugar cookie cut-out but we also love the quick, easy Christmas cookies like Pretzel Turtles and pretzels topped with Hershey’s Kisses. After seeing some mini candy bars at the store, I decided to make another easy Christmas cookie this year: Candy Bar Pretzel Bites. They are pretzels stuffed with mini candy bars and dipped in a vanilla candy coating.
Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Top with as many rectangular pretzels as you have mini candy bars. I put down 30 pretzels.
Unwrap the mini candy bars. My bag had a mix of about 30 Snickers, 3 Musketeers, Milky Way, Milky Way Dark and Twix. I didn’t use the Twix bars.
Put the mini candy bars on the pretzels and warm in the oven at 300 degrees for about 3 minutes. If you are only making a few of these at a time, you could soften them in the microwave for a few second.
Top with more pretzels and press down gently.
Allow the chocolate to harden. Then, dip one side of the candy bar pretzel sandwich into melted white chocolate or vanilla candy coating. I used vanilla CandiQuik.
Return to the covered baking sheet and add red sprinkles.
Crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside!
Put them in a dish to enjoy or in a mason jar to give as a gift!
