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.

    Oh I love the idea of using condensed milk. I was trying to figure out how I could use these for holiday tins with the need for refrigeration, and this is the answer!

    I made batches and batches of these last year – I absolutely love the idea of the condensed milk, so they don’t have to be refrigerated. I’ll have to try that!

    I can not wait to try these! I’m not so good at baking though. Can you give me a tip on how best to dip them in the chocolate? Should I put them on a spoon? Help!
