Here's your line-up of ingredients:
1 3/4 cups pretzels, broken into pieces
1 bag Hershey's candy cane kisses (minus a few because it's impossible to unwrap them without eating a few!)
Christmas sprinkles and/or M&M's for decorating
Let's take a closer look at these beauties....
Melt the milk chocolate in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring each time, until it's completely melted. Spread the chocolate onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Working quickly, press the pretzel pieces into the chocolate in an even layer. I noticed that the outside edges of the chocolate hardened first, so work your way from the outside in. Fit as many pretzel pieces as possible. The more, the better!
So cheery and yummy! (I was tempted not to break it up into pieces and declare the whole piece as mine!)
Once the candy cane kiss layer has hardened, break into pieces and enjoy!
The pretzels add a nice crunch to the the bark, and the saltiness cuts some of the sweetness of the chocolate and kisses. Milk chocolate + candy cane kisses + pretzels = addicting!
