I’ll have a glue, glue Christmas — #7: Quick holiday party snack

I know this is supposed to be a crafty holiday guide, but I had to include this simple treat in the list in case you find yourself needing to provide a snack at an office holiday party. I don’t like baking much and I don’t have the time to create four dozen sugar-coated almond cookies. Grab a bag of pretzel chips and chocolate chips from Costco and dig around your cabinets for some Girl Scout cookies. You won’t be sorry.

Chocolate-covered pretzels with Thin Mint sprinkles — No. 7 on Alaska Knit Nat’s DIY Holiday Craft Guide

Ingredients:

  • 48 or so Pretzel chips (or regular pretzels)
  • 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 6 Thin Mint cookies

Directions: Process Thin Mints in a food processor until coarsely ground. Set aside in a bowl. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Place 3/4 cups chocolate chips in microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in increments of 30 seconds, stirring in between, until chocolate is melted. Add the remaining 1/4 chocolate chips and stir until melted. Dip half of each pretzel in the chocolate and place on cookie sheet. Sprinkle with a pinch of Thin Mint crumbles. Place cookie sheets in the fridge for 15 minutes or until chocolate is set.

  1. Just received your e-mail regarding the quick holiday snack. I’d like to try making them but don’t have any mint flavoured Girl Guide cookies. Could you please suggest an alternative? Sorry I can’t call you by name alaskaknitnat.

    1. Hi Faye,
      Great question. What about Oreo cookies? Ground up peppermint candies or Christmas-colored sprinkles might work too. Or just make chocolate-dipped pretzels with no topping. The salt on the pretzels adds a great contrast of flavor to the sweetness of the chocolate.
      Thanks for commenting,
      Natasha (hence the Nat in Alaska Knit Nat) 🙂
