White Chocolate Peppermint Pretzel Bark

I love chocolate dipped pretzels, especially during the holidays.  There’s something about the combination of salty and sweet that gets my mouth watering!  But I don’t like the process of making them myself.  After dipping 5 or 6 pretzels I am already sick of the process.  Last week when I was craving chocolate dipped pretzels, I happened to be flipping through a catalog that featured a recipe for peppermint bark, and a thought occurred to me.  What if I combined the idea of chocolate dipped pretzels and peppermint bark?

So I tried it, and guess what? It worked!  All the flavors of chocolate dipped pretzels that I love so much, but the ease and speed of making peppermint bark.  I’m never making chocolate dipped pretzels again!  All you have to do is stir a bit of peppermint extract and some lightly crumbled pretzels crisps (I find these give better texture to the bark than regular pretzels) into melted white chocolate, spread the mixture onto a prepared jelly roll pan, then sprinkle the top of the bark with crushed candy canes and chill!  That’s it.  You could also add a layer of dark or milk chocolate, use a different flavor of extract, or sprinkle it with chopped nuts instead of the crushed candy—endlessly customizable, but still oh so easy!

White Chocolate Peppermint Pretzel Bark
Makes approximately 1.75 pounds

16 ounces white chocolate with cocoa butter, chopped into small pieces
1 teaspoon peppermint extract
9 ounces pretzel crisps, broken into pieces
1/3 cup candy canes or peppermint candy, crushed

1. Line a small jelly roll pan (approximately 13.25” x 9.25” in size) with foil, extended over the sides.  Grease the foil lightly with butter or nonstick spray.

2. Melt the white chocolate in a double boiler over medium-low heat until the chocolate is almost melted.  Remove the insert from the pan and stir the chocolate until completely melted.  Stir in the extract, then stir in the pretzel pieces.  Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and smooth with a spatula.  Sprinkle with the crushed peppermint candy.

3. Chill until the bark is firm.  Lift the foil out of the pan and shake off the excess candy.  Carefully peel the foil from the bottom of the bark, then cut the bark into pieces.

Now just wrap some up and give it as small gifts to your neighbors, postman, teachers or co-workers!

  2. Thanks so much for your idea– I had the exact same thought after dipping just a few pretzels! Question though–9 oz of pretzels–that’s weighed oz, right? Because I just did 5 oz and there was barely enough chocolate to cover. So I either figured my amount of pretzels differently than you or didn’t break them up small enough–I broke each crisp in about 3 pieces. Let me know what I did differently, as I want to try it the way you did it next time to see how it compares. Thanks!
