Spring M&M Pretzel Treats

I realized I’ve posted these little treats on my blog, not once, not twice, but three times already. But they’re seriously so simple and delicious, I decided it was ok to post them again.


I was at CVS yesterday browsing through the 50% off Easter candy when the M&Ms caught my eye. I had some almond bark in the pantry so I instantly thought of these treats. The last time I was home in the Midwest, I stocked up on almond bark at the grocery store. I haven’t been able to find it in the Boston area anywhere. The Wilton candy melts work ok, but I definitely prefer using almond bark.


These are perfect for spring and we’ll be taking them this weekend when we visit Hubby’s family.

    Is there any way to make this without an ice cream maker? I love the idea of this chocolate sorbet and was totally on board until the last part. Now I’m very curious and might have to do some googling after my daughter goes to bed.

      I just started making ice cream after getting the ice cream attachment for my mixer. So I don’t personally have any experience making ice cream without an ice cream maker. I’m sure it’s been done. If you do make this without an ice cream maker, let me know how it turns out!

    I added 1/4 tsp salt and 1 tsp vanilla. It was delicious.

      So glad you enjoyed it! I love adding salt to desserts. I will definitely have to do the same next time I make this.
