Default Easter almond bark pretzels

I came down with the urge to make almond bark covered pretzels for the Easter season and thought I'd at least share a picture of them.

This was an experiment so there is no real recipe but here are the ingredients I used for this batch.

1lb bag honey wheat braid pretzels.

4lbs almond bark candy coating.

food coloring(you don't really need the coloring but I wanted to make them look more festive. I suggest the McCormick brand.
The orange color I used was an off brand and it made the coating go from smooth, to chunky and dry looking.)

Left over pastel candy hearts for decoration.

Wax paper and a cookie sheet or drying rack for setting the pretzels on after coating them.


Divide the almond bark into separate blocks one for each color you want to make.

Melt the coating in a double boiler and add the colored dye of your choice.

Dip the pretzels in the coating and place them on the wax paper.

IMPORTANT, if you are going to add sprinkles to the coating you will need to do so every 2-3 pretzels or the coating
will dry enough that the sprinkles won't stick.

Sounds very doable. And they look very festive. Thanks, Frank!

OoOooo what a fantastic idea


I like to melt chocolate and dip fruit (strawberries ) and pretzels in it.
