There is something so decadent about blending salty and sweet. I think that’s why I love chocolate covered pretzels so much! If you love Thin Mints, you will love these Candy Cane and White Chocolate Covered Pretzels! They are an easy Christmas candy that can be whipped up last minute!

Make your own Candy Cane and White Chocolate Covered Pretzels
I enlisted my son’s help to crush up candy canes. I have to say that the look on his face as he pounded away on the candy was my favorite part of making these sweet treats! He pounded away with such intensity! Unwrap 4-6 candy canes and place in a plastic baggie. Use a meat mallet and begin pulverizing the heck out of them! The kids will love this part. Place the crushed candy canes in a bowl and set aside. (I actually prefer eating candy canes this way! LOL!)
Melt the white chocolate candies per package instructions. Pay attention to the wattage on your microwave and time set to avoid burning the chocolate.
Dip the end of the pretzel rods in the melted white chocolate. Allow excess to drip off. Lay out some wax paper and sprinkle the candy canes onto the wax paper. Gently roll the dipped pretzel rod through the crushed candy cane.
Set aside and let dry!
Great for Christmas and holiday parties! Or simply package in a treat bag and gift to your neighbors! Everyone will love this festive treat!
