Candy Bar Pretzel Bites Christmas Cookies

Candy Bar Pretzel Bites are easy to make Christmas cookies. This recipe would be perfect for a cookie exchange!

Candy Bar Pretzel Bites RecipeThere 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.

Square PretzelsLine 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.

Mini Candy BarsUnwrap 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.

Christmas CookiesPut 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.

Candy Bar Stuffed PretzelsTop with more pretzels and press down gently.

Vanilla CandiQuikAllow 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.

    Yum! I really wanna try this. But, can’t find pretzels here. Only pretzel sticks. I think I’ll try to make these with Ritz crackers instead. What do you think about that? :)
    There are so many fun ingredients that you use, that can’t be found in Norway. So, I’m having fun trying to find good substitutes. ;)

    Hello Tonia, Simple & delicious. Thank you for such great a fabulous ideas. Making gifts is a great way to give a part of yourself in the gift. My past has been making chocolate goodies that are no bake. Peanut butter balls, Buckeyes, were the first I tried , my son being 3 years old at the time and I loved to bake and cook. That was my start and I’ve been baking , and people call me “Betty Crocker”.
