We love playing on that ever-popular salty sweet flavour palette (our Christmas snack mix being a prime example.)

And homemade treats don’t come much easier, quicker, or indeed cuter than these Christmas Pretzel Bites!

They look like little Christmas gonks (or gnomes) and quite frankly you don’t need to ask us twice when it comes to a recipe calling out for Cadbury chocolate!

Really the word ‘recipe’ is far too grand for these festive treats.  It’s more of an assembly job – anyone can do it – but they really do look the part, don’t they?

A perfect addition to a Christmas party table, North Pole Breakfast or simple a Christmas movie or games night snack.  Just please don’t leave the bowl by us … we won’t be able to stop munching!

Ingredients
  

  • 18 pretzels
  • 1 bar Cadbury Winter Wonderland
  • 18 m&ms or Smarties, red & green

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 100C and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
  • Separate the Cadbury Winter Wonderland bar into chunks, each with one milk chocolate and one white chocolate tree together in a diamond shape.
  • Lay out the pretzels on the lined baking tray and top each one with one of the Cadbury chunks.
  • Place the tray into the oven for 8-10 minutes, or until the chocolate starts to melt; it will have a shine to the top of it.
  • Remove from the oven and immediately press the m&ms or Smarties into the top of the chocolate.

Notes

If you don't have access to Cadbury Winter Wonderland chocolate bars, Hershey's Kisses work well too.
