Hello! This is Laura from Pink Cake Plate! I am over the moon excited to be a part of Bake Craft Sew 2015! With the holidays fast approaching its time to start baking all those goodies! I stopped at my local convenience store and came across these yummy peppermint pretzels, they were to die for! I had to try and recreate these tasty pretzels. Well they were completely dipped in white chocolate so I wanted to make mine a little different and that is how these Peppermint Sugar Pretzels came to be!
Now dipping pretzels completely in chocolate is great but can take a lot of time and a lot of chocolate! These pretzels are just drizzled with chocolate, with the peppermint sugar its a perfect combination! And the peppermint sugar adds a great texture to this yummy treat!
Making peppermint sugar is as easy as pie well easier! Just place 1 cup of sugar in a zip lock bag add 1/4 teaspoon of peppermint extract zip it shut and mix it up! Super easy!
These will make a great addition to your goodie trays or you can package these up cute and give them as a hostess gift! We all need those for all the holiday parties we will be attending!
