Peppermint Bark Pretzels are the perfect dessert for the holidays. These chocolate covered pretzels are covered in bright cheery candy canes, and are the best combo of sweet and salty!

If you love chocolate and pretzels together as much as I do, you should also try these Pumpkin Pretzels and these Chunky Monkey Cookies.

Like Dirty Dancing or Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, some things are best left untouched. 

Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip Cookies and Peanut Butter Blossoms are some of those items that really should be left alone.

No matter what new spin you put on them, the classic recipe is still my favorite.

These Chocolate Peppermint Pretzels Are Perfect For Christmas

The same could be said for chocolate covered pretzels with crushed peppermint on them. I make them every year around the holidays and they are always perfect just as they are!

With the bright cheery colors and the sweet, salty, minty mix of flavors…they just can’t be beat! Plus they don’t require a lot of time…or an oven!!

    I have all of this stuff on hand and since it seems more people are calling to see if we’re available way last minute, I’m going to make some, bag ’em and keep them on hand so I seem more festive and not like I’m thinking of the 50 other things I had planned before they “dropped in.” (I swear I’m not a Grinch!)

    My family does the same thing, only with pretzel rods. Probably because we don’t have the patience for little pretzels! 🙂

    It’s really amazing how something so easy to do can be SO ADDICTING. Sure they’re classic, but that doesn’t make your pictures any less adorable!
