Easy Sweets  Pretzels with Chocolate & AlmondsAround this time of year I tend to make a LOT of sweets in my kitchen.  This year I was inspired by Amy Q. over at In A Galaxy Blog to make a new sweet treat to share with friends for the holidays,  Pretzels with Chocolate & Almonds.  I think this is one of the easiest treats I’ve ever put together, and it was made even easier because my minions children can do most of the work themselves!  Amy Q. made these treats for Halloween using pretzels, hugs and candy corn, and they were so YUMMY!  I couldn’t keep my hands off of them!  I changed them up a bit for Christmas, and they are still a hit!

Pretzels with Chocolate & Almonds

12212013 042Ingredients:
“Waffle” style pretzels such as Snaps
Hugs (I used candy cane Hugs)

Place pretzels on parchment paper on a baking sheet.  Add a hug to each pretzel.  Heat at 350 for just a few minutes (no more than 5 minutes) until the hugs are heated.  They will have a shiny look to them.  Take them out of the oven and carefully put an almond on top of each hug.  And voila…an easy holiday candy!
