Easy M&M Treats

These little guys remind me of Christmas growing up. We always made them. They’re the perfect combination of salty and sweet and are the perfect bite-size.

These treats would also be great for any other occasion. Pink or blue M&Ms for a baby shower, orange and black for Halloween, red and blue for Forth of July. I highly recommend making this a two-man job. It will make things go a lot smoother.

Easy M&M Treats (by ME!)
1 1-lb bag of mini-pretzels
2 big bag of M&Ms
2 packages of Almond Bark

Line 2 cookie sheets with waxed paper. Lie pretzels (flat side down) on the waxed paper. They can be very close to each other.

Melt almond bark in the microwave according to the directions on the package. Using a spoon, scoop some of the melted almond bark into the holes of the pretzels. Before it starts to set, put 3 M&Ms into the melted almond bark. This is where it helps to have an extra set of hands. Usually I pour the melted almond bark while Hubby puts the M&Ms in.

When the sheet is full, put it in the freezer or outside to let the almond bark set.

    Was the consistency like ice cream? It sounds cool and summery. Plus you probably get super brownie points for submitting so early!

    The texture isn’t quite as creamy as ice cream… It’s more frozen than that(?) They are really good though!

    I know this post is like a year old, but I followed a link from another page and found it. Question – do you have to keep them frozen until serving? We’re going to a pool party, so they might be outside for a while. Will they melt?

    If I remember correctly, they will melt. They might be fine for a little while, but not all afternoon. Sorry I can’t be more help!
