Popping Pretzels

2015-09-22 13.36.20

I know what you are thinking, “and she wonders why she keeps putting on the pounds”. But, trust me, these are an addiction that you will be grateful for. They take 5 minutes to make and you can make them for any holiday by just changing out the color of candy melts and M&M’s.

So far, I have not been able to find any Fall colored M&M’s yet, so just picked out the brown, yellow and orange ones from the bag I had. I posted these a couple of years ago and for some reason, did not make them last year. Probably because I knew if I did, I would be admitted to the 1800chocolatehoarders. But folks, this has been a tough year. Learning how to live in a house with a newly retired husband, well…let’s just say that I have earned every bite of chocolate I can get my hands on. It is so weird that I don’t even really like pretzels, but when you put chocolate on them, they become a whole new food group to me.

It has been so easy to convince myself that at least I’m not popping pills. Maybe after this, diet pills will be in my future, but will wait until the whole bag of pretzels and M&M’s are gone.

1 bag of waffle pretzels

1 bag of orange candy melts (Found mine at Michaels for $1.99)

M&M’s (any flavor you like, but the plain is what I used today)

Preheat oven to 225. On a baking sheet, place the waffle pretzels in a single layer. Place a candy melt in the center of each pretzel. Place in preheated oven for about 2 minutes. I take mine out just before the little tip of the candy melts goes flat. Have your M&M’s ready to place one in the center of each candy melt.

So perfect for those evenings of watching The Voice or Castle or sharing (yeah, right, like I’m going to actually give some away…I don’t think so) with a neighbor! Seriously, these are so great to take to parties or to your son and daughter-in-laws house when you babysit, because they never have any desserts in the house…oops did I say that out loud?
