Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Covered Pretzels are a simple candy you can serve up as a Christmas treat or just for fun! Christmas candy or not they make everyone smile!
This time of year we love candy don’t we? It’s the time of year when we all get together at white elephant parties or cookie exchanges and spend time with our friends and family! I just went to a cookie exchange last night with friends. It was slightly different this year. We all made a sugar cookie and brought them all undecorated to the party. My friend T.J. had all the icing and sprinkles we could want waiting for us. So we exchanged cookies and spent the night hanging out together decorating cookies. You better believe though that before we started all the decorating we had our fair share of other nummies! I brought Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Covered Pretzels along with a Onion Cranberry Pecan Cheese Ball and cream puffs. Everything was a hit!
Everyone loved the Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Covered Pretzels! It’s funny, people go crazy just from hearing the description! The second they get a taste it’s like their eyes grown 2 sizes! These are super simple to make! I put them in a cute little Santa tin and they make a great gift for neighbors or teachers. I had to make extra to leave at home with the little guys too! They are already gone!!! To be fair, my husband hit the bag with the extras too, they really are great!
What are you guys up to this week? We’re trying to wrap up work so we don’t have too much to do while my parents are here for Christmas. I also have MOST of my shopping to do still!!! YIKES!! This is crunch week for me. I see a lot of late nights and early mornings this week as I try to get it all done. I don’t want to miss this season with my kids though so my husband and I started a tradition last year of watching a Christmas special every night with the boys while we have a Christmas treat. I really love this time. My youngest little guys had his arm around me the other night and told me he loves this time of year. It made my year!!! I want to find a way to keep that magic going after Christmas. I’m feeling really blessed this year.
