COOK TIME
2 Hr

The slow cooker is ideal for candy making. It keeps chocolate at a constant temperature, so no reheating is necessary to get an even coating. Our Chocolate-and Peppermint-Coated Pretzels will turn you into an expert candy maker in no time!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (16-ounce) package pretzel nuggets
  • 2 (16-ounce) packages chocolate-flavored bark candy coating, coarsely chopped
  • 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 (4-ounce) square semisweet baking chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 1 (16-ounce) package hard peppermint candies, finely crushed and divided (about 1-1/2 cups)
  • 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
What To Do:
  1. Combine first 4 ingredients in a 6-quart slow cooker.
     
  2. Cover and cook on LOW setting 2 hours. Stir chocolate mixture; add 1 cup crushed peppermint candies and peppermint extract, stirring well to coat.
     
  3. Drop pretzel mixture by heaping tablespoonfuls onto wax paper. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup crushed peppermint candies evenly on pieces before they set. Let stand until firm. Store in an airtight container.
     
Notes

The red and white stripes in the peppermint candy remind us of candy canes, which is why we love making this easy candy recipe for Christmas! For even more Christmas candy recipes check out our free eCookbook, Christmas Candy Recipes: 24 Ideas for Homemade Christmas Gifts!
