Easy Bark Pretzels

Bark Pretzels are an easy no-bake treat this Christmas!

I love bark pretzels at Christmas time.  They’re easy to make, just 2 ingredients, but sometimes I get lazy and I really get annoyed having to dip all those pretzels when I could be baking something instead!

So this year, I decided just to dump the whole block of melted bark over the pretzels, stir them and call it a day!

They’re more clumped together (but who only eats 1 bark pretzel anyway?) and not quite as pretty, but so much faster, it’s totally worth it!  Plus, this method lends itself to mix-ins!  Yum!!

Easy Bark Pretzels

1 (24 oz) block almond bark, melted
8 cups mini pretzels
1 cup peanuts (optional)
1 cup chocolate chips
Christmas sprinkles

Line 2 baking sheets with waxed paper or silicone mats.

Place the pretzels and peanuts (if using) in a large bowl.  Pour the bark over the pretzels and stir to coat.  Stir in the chocolate chips.  Pour the pretzel mixture onto the prepared trays, spreading the pretzels out as much as possible.  Sprinkle with Christmas sprinkles.

Allow the bark to cool a bit, then break into smaller clusters.  Cool completely, then store in an airtight container.
