Valentine Chocolate Pretzel Bites
(originally published February, 2012 can’t believe how small my now 8 year old looks compared to now)
Next week is the big day! The day for chocolate, hearts and most of all LOVE! This past weekend my 6 year old son and I took some time to make these yummy and super simple Valentine Chocolate Pretzel Bites for his Kindergarten class party. I love snacks that are sweet and salty, don’t you? I promise these will satisfy the strongest of cravings. I thought I’d share the recipe and make it a tutorial, plus offer up some more sweet and savory Valentine’s snacks at the end of this post. Enjoy!
Heart Shaped Dove Chocolates
Valentine Colored M&Ms
Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
Grab a little helper and start placing pretzels onto a lined cookie sheet.
While your little helper is lining up the pretzels, unwrap all chocolates.
Center a chocolate onto each pretzel
Both milk and dark chocolate, make a nice contrast.
Bake 8-10 minutes or until chocolate is melted but still retains shape
Press an M&M into each chocolate (not too far)
Place in a safe place (where you can’t eat them:) and allow to cool
on sheet until they are no longer soft. Overnight is best.
