While I like to consider myself a good baker, candy making is definitely not my forte. The closest thing I make to candy pretzel bark. You know why I love making (and eating) pretzel bark so much? I love that I can take a few simple ingredients, which I ususally have on hand in my pantry, and create a tasty treat for a party, the upcoming holidays or even a special after-school snack for the kids. Pretzels covered in chocolate along with a host of favorite toppings…what’s not to love??!!
You may have seen different versions of bark on Pinterest. I can’t take credit for inventing it but I am going to share with you another one of my favorite versions that I love to make. Cranberry Nut Pretzel Bark is a snap to make! Warning….pretzel bark is addictive!
- 24 oz. white chocolate, melted
- 4 cups pretzels - square, sticks or mini work best
- 2 cups Craisins
- 1½ toasted Pecans
- Using a double boiler, melt chocolate on low. Stir occasionally.
- While chocolate is melting, line a large baking sheet with parchment. Cover bottom of pan with pretzels.
- Once chocolate is smooth and melted, remove from heat and pour evenly over pretzels. Use a spatula to spread.
- Top melted chocolate with nuts and Craisins and refrigerate for 2 hours.
- Once bark is cold and set, break apart into chunks or cut into squares.
