Peppermint Pretzel Bark

I hope you enjoy this little something that I created. It's sweet, it's salty, and it's pepperminty! Can life get better? 

Here's your line-up of ingredients:
2 cups chocolate melting wafers
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!

 Once the milk chocolate has hardened, unwrap the Hershey's candy cane kisses and melt in the microwave using the same technique as with the milk chocolate. Spread the kisses over the pretzels, and then decorate with Christmas sprinkles.

 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!
