How to Make Chocolate Pretzel Bark

To start this recipe, pour a bag of white chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl. Then, melt in the microwave in 30 second intervals and stir well in between each interval. Be sure not to overheat the chocolate. While the chocolate is melting line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or wax paper. Then, spread the melted chocolate out thin on top of prepared cookie sheet. Then, put M&M’s, pretzels and a little bit of sprinkles on top.

Next, melt the milk chocolate and drizzle it on top. About 1/2 cup of milk chocolate chips is all you should need. Then, we topped it with more M&M’s, pretzels and some Christmas sprinkles!

Refrigerate until chocolate has hardened (about 20 minutes) and then break into pieces. Depending on the temperature in your home you may want to store your Chocolate Pretzel Bark in an airtight container in your refrigerator. If your home is cool enough, store it in an airtight container in a cool dry place away from any heat sources or windows.
