Holiday Treat Snowflake Pretzels
Ever since doing the spider web snacks for Halloween, I knew I wanted to attempt something similar around Christmastime with snowflakes. And, I think the first attempt was a success! These snowflake pretzels are a delicious sweet & salty treat and look so pretty on a dessert table for the holidays! They’re definitely a fun alternative to your traditional Christmas cookies! Snowflake Pretzels
Here’s what you’ll need to make these pretty & tasty holiday treats:
Lay out a sheet of wax paper on a cookie sheet and determine what kind of look you’d like for your snowflakes.  Since snowflakes are so unique themselves, your possibilities are nearly endless!
Melt your white chocolate/candy coating according to package directions (I used the microwave).  Coat all your long sticks in melted chocolate, then dip in white sugar crystals, lay on the wax paper, connecting in the center as best you can.  Repeat with the small pieces.

Put some white chocolate in baggie with tip cut off or pastry bag and pipe some extra chocolate in the center and as needed to help connect the small pieces.  Add any additional sprinkles, decorations, etc. (I used silver dragees). I love the sparkly/icy look that the white sugar crystals give (though I think silver or blue might be fun too)! Put in the fridge for a few minutes to let harden. Then, carefully peel back wax paper, and enjoy!
True to real snowflakes, none of these will be “perfect”, they will all be unique, and should certainly be quite fun to catch on your tongue! 🙂 Snowflake Pretzels

    @ Kristen–they have held up really well. As long as you make sure each piece is well coated when you stick it together and you let it cool completely before you remove it from the wax paper, then they should be good to go and quite sturdy.
