Easy No-Bake Christmas Treats

This is one of my son's favorite Christmas treats.  We make them every year.  Around Thanksgiving time, he starts to ask about them... 

They are.....super-easy.....Almond Bark Pretzels.

What you'll need:
  1. Almond Bark Vanilla Flavored Coating
  2. Bag of small shaped pretzels (I think the traditional pretzel shape works best)
  3. Nonpareils Mix multi-colored dessert sprinkles (optional)
  4. Wax paper

  • Follow the melting instructions on your Almond Bark (I use the microwave instructions)
  • Dip the pretzels in to coat
  • Drain excess coating from pretzel with a fork or tong
  • Sprinkle with the nonpareils; if desired
  • Place on wax paper to dry
  • Put in a pretty bowl once the pretzels have hardened
This easy treat is complete in approx. 20 - 30 minutes and you don't even need to turn on the stove.  

The best part is watching my son put on the sprinkles.  :-)

Joy in a quick treat with minimal clean-up.
