Valentine's Day Pretzels

Two big news items:

1. I actually completed one of the many thousands of things I've pinned on Pinterest.

2. Carter helped me.

Now, #2 is seriously huge.  Carter doesn't like to do anything with me, unless it involves an iphone or playstation.  He is so not into cooking or crafting which leaves me debating whether or not he was switched at birth. Just sayin'.

But, he seemed super excited to help make these cute little treats.  Yes, I know I'm WAY early on the Vday desserts... but I wanted to eat them, and didn't want to wait another month.  So there.

His favorite part was dropping the sprinkles.  And I've been sweeping them up for days now.

It was some good fun, even if I did have to bite my tongue about 30-million times to stop myself from telling him the "right" way to dip the pretzels. Control-freak, much?

Even with his less-than-perfect confectionary skills, they still turned out super cute and deliciously edible!

Oh... were you looking for a recipe? Here you go: melt some white chocolate chips. Dip pretzels in them. Lay pretzels on parchment paper/silpat-lined cookie sheet.  Sprinkle with sprinkles! Refrigerate until chocolate hardens again. The end.


  1. I've seen these floating around on Pinterest, too, and have been wanting to make them!

  2. So cute! I am going to do this! :)

  3. Yes, so cute. I'm not a great cook, but I tried to make these at Christmas. The icing was a little thick and hard to work with. Once they set I tasted one it wasn't tasty. Turns out I checked my white chocolate box and it expired 2 years ago. I guess I don't bake to often...

  4. Simple and sweet! I am going to try this with my little guy! :)
