Holiday Peanut Butter Filled Pretzels

Holiday Peanut Butter Filled Pretzels 1
My kids beg for chocolate covered pretzels every holiday season. We have been making versions of these for years and years. Sometimes it's just the long rods with sprinkles, or the thick "pretzel shaped" ones. 

They are another easy, easy addition to the holiday cookie platter. And they look so pretty too. We made so many of these the other day. It's also the perfect project for kids who like to do this kind of thing. No stove required.

I have been using Candiquik for a very long time. It only shows up at my grocery store "sometimes" during the holiday season. When I see it, I buy every single package. It lasts all year and is perfect for lots of holiday projects (Valentine's, Easter etc). I especially like how it sets up so easily on the item you are dipping. I have always had great luck with this product. I just wish it was more readily available and I'm finding myself ordering it online more and more.

The Candiquik is in a microwavable tray and only takes a little over a minute to melt completely.

These look great in all kinds of containers and are the perfect little treats to wrap up in sweet jars or teeny baskets for giving.

  1. I love these! They’re so pretty with the decorative sprinkles, but knowing there’s even more goodness inside I wouldn’t be able to keep my hands off of them! Getting a picture of them might be close to impossible for me, lol.

  2. I’ve never heard of Candiquik but I’m definitely going to keep an eye out for it (or order some online)! I usually use the candy melts from Michael’s which work pretty well. The girls will love to make these easy Christmas treats!

  3. Oh, Cathy! We were just talking about candy-covered pretzels. I bought some white almond bark for another recipe on the blog, and had leftover and instantly thought about the pretzels we used to make! It’s such a classic treat. In a world of triple chocolate, nutella-infused oreo-stuffed everything, simple is best :)

  4. That sounds so much better than plain pretzels! What a great idea. My kids want to make these today they said. :)

    I use the Candiquick too, and it does a great job with whatever you need it to do.
