Valentine Pretzels, Mmmmm...


These pretzels have just about dissapeared even before I get the blog post finished!
They are a big hit with the kids...making them & eating them!
I have tried a couple myself and they sure are morish.

I started with a bag of Wilton Candy Melts in Blue.
I followed the package directions and melted them in the microwave, stirring several times between intervals.


Grab a bag of your favorite pretzels.


And next you just start dippin'.
I lined baking pans with wax paper and layed the dipped pretzels on the wax paper to harden.


Don't forget to add sprinkles to make them even cuter!



Oh my...delish!


So yummy!


Don't you just want to pick those sprinkles off?
Mmm, mmm, mmm.

These would make a perfect valentine gifts as well.
Grab a mason jar and fill it up.



I decorated the jar with a paper doilie heart, red twine, red ribbon, and valentine stamps.




These are so easy to make, you can have them done in an hour, just try not to eat too many or you'll have none to give!


Imagine, Improvise & Invent

Sarah
