It is officially winter! It’s kind of ironic that in Maryland, we’ve had snow three times already and bitter cold temps, but on the first day of winter, the temperature hit 70 degrees! I am so sure this balmy interlude will be incredibly short lived, though we’ll enjoy it for the moment. Winter will return, the holidays are here, children are home from school and perhaps you’ll be making some treats over the next week for family gatherings and parties. There are all kinds of fun ways to decorate and dip pretzels for a sweet and salty treat. These Let It Snow Candy Pretzels, featuring cute snowmen and pretty snowflakes, are a great addition to other candy pretzels. You can also bag them individually, add a pop of curly ribbon on top and they instantly become a festive favor perfect for any winter celebration!
I found this adorable pretzel candy mold by Wilton at JoAnn. If you’ve been visiting for a while, you already know my candy making trick of melting the different candy colors using an electric frying pan. It makes the whole process easy – just grab some candy paintbrushes and have fun! You can see the set-up and more on the process at the the Candy Covered Winter Oreos. Here’s how the pretzels looked during the “painting” process!
These pretzels just make you smile – right before you take a big sweet, salty bite!
Get together some candy making supplies and enjoy a day of creating some delicious and cute treat with the family over the holiday. The family has some creative fun AND you get a sweet treat to enjoy and share!
Who’s ready for Christmas and who still has shopping, wrapping and lots of other things to do? I am in the group that will be running around today trying to get finished! If you are out and about today, be safe and know that we WILL get everything done…right? 🙂 For my friends who ready and relaxing, I hope you have a wonderful day enjoying family, friends and all the spirit of the season.
Don’t forget to stop by tomorrow for our very last All Things Christmas link party! The festivities begin at 9:00 a.m. EST and I’m sure they will be lots of great holiday food and last minute ideas. Oh, and if you are like me and just love to visit holiday homes, grab a cup of coffee and take the 12 Days of Christmas Tour – a fabulous and fun tour through the decked-for-the-holiday homes of 30 lovely bloggers. Each home is just bursting with holiday happiness!
