Still with the old, yucky pictures, but my next cooking endeavor I promise I'll document with the nice camera :)
This was one of those things that happened because I became addicted to a food, then convinced myself I could make it better myself. I was buying $3 bags of Royal Gold left and right and thought it might be cheaper to make my own.
Verdict: Ehhh I wouldn't say cheaper, per se, since each individual item is nearly as expensive as the $3 bag, but these come out with a thicker chocolate coating and more pronounced candy cane flavor, so I prefer them to the manufactured ones either way. They also lasted longer because they were bigger and therefore I didn't down them quite as quickly.
These are a lovely addition to a cookie swap or Christmas tin you pass out to neighbors... I need to refill my supply and you can bet I'll be doing this soon :)
Peppermint Bark Pretzels
- 1 Bag pretzels of your choice (I chose Royal Gold traditional pretzels)
- 1 large bag white chocolate chips
- 1/2 box candycanes
-Pulverize candycanes into fine powder with some larger chunks still visible. This can be done in a food processor, or with a ziplock bag and a hammer.
-Melt white chocolate in a double boiler. Stir in 3/4 of the candy cane pieces.
-Using two forks, dip pretzels into chocolate and place on wax paper. Immediately sprinkle with some of the remaining candy cane, then put in fridge until firm.
