I love the holiday season — I love the extra time with family, watching movies, the gift giving and the holiday baking! I especially love holiday baking with my family — frosting sugar cookies, baking cakes, and trying new recipes, and then enjoying a movie together after. The conversation and laughter while we’re in the kitchen makes for the best memories and the treats are icing on the cake! Our most recent recipes we tried turned out amazing: Cotton Candy Pretzels.
One of my guilty pleasures this time of year is Hershey’s Kisses Candy Cane Mint candies. Those things are the bomb! As we were playing around in the kitchen, I knew I needed to center a recipe (and a new family tradition) around them and that’s when cotton candy pretzels were discovered!
Cotton Candy Pretzels
- 1/2 cup Hershey’s Kisses Candy Cane Mint candies
- 1 cup mini marshmallows
- 1 Tbsp. butter
- Parchment Paper
1. Prepare a cookie sheet by lining it with parchment paper.
2. Melt the butter in a saucepan on low/medium-low heat.
3. Add Hershey’s Kisses Candy Cane Mint candies and stir till melted.
4. Add in mini marshmallows and stir until melted and smooth, then transfer entire content into a bowl for dipping!
5. Dip pretzels carefully in the “cotton candy” mixture, cover half the pretzel then lay on the parchment paper.
6. Cool in fridge for about 30 minutes to an hour.
Done! Now you’re ready to kick up your feet with your family, turn on a movie and enjoy your pretzels!
These also makes the perfect treat for holiday parties!
For even more variety (and since we were having so much fun in the kitchen) we also made some chocolate dipped pretzels (some with and some without coconut flakes). We used this method to melt the Hershey’s Kisses Milk Chocolate, when melted we dipped the pretzels, laid on the parchment paper and sprinkled coconut flakes on half of them. Put them in the fridge until hardened — done!
Pretzel dipping is the perfect family tradition to do year after year. It’s quick, easy, fun and absolutely delicious! What are some of your favorite holiday traditions with your family?
