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.

I love this simple recipe, and it will be a great idea for my sister-in-law's bridal shower (both she and her fiance have M names). You mention in your other posts about using a squeeze bottle - is this any particular type of squeeze bottle? I'm not sure how to find one that would work for this purpose. What do you use? Thanks!

Awww, totally cute! It came up in my google reader and my stomach growled!!! YUM!

Yum! I'm making these this weekend for birthday treats. Can't believe you can't find almond bark. There are stacks of it at our small-town grocery store in Iowa.

Sarah - I use squeeze bottles from Michaels. They look like this.

Teresa - yes, it's crazy that they don't have almond bark out East. In the Midwest you can get it anywhere!

Sarah said...

Thanks Jen! These are awesome. I have so many new pages bookmarked since finding your blog. P.S. I was in TJ Maxx tonight and found a jar of polka dot sprinkles, like true big polka dots, and I thought of you!

Do you have any Super WalMarts near you? I get them there all the time in Massachusetts. They are carried year round in the baking aisle. I'm not sure if regular WalMarts have them too.

These look yummy and I think that my college-age nephews would love them...how whould they travel? Have you got suggestions for things that will travel well in the mail? Thank you

Jen said...

mrs. c - these would travel really well. I like them straight from the fridge or freezer. I would freeze them for a few days prior to mailing. That's what I do with anything I ship. I have great luck with cookies and brownies going in the mail.

KV said...

have you tried coloring almond bark before? I tried a couple months ago and it was a disaster, so just curious

Jen said...

KV - I have not tried to color almond bark. The Wilton's candy melts do come in a variety of colors though, so you could use those. They are sold at Michaels or Hobby Lobby.

Just wanted to clarify that I meant I find almond bark at Super WalMart here in MA. I went back to see if you had responded, and I realized my comment didn't really make much sense!

Jen said...

Thanks. I don't shop much at Walmart... It's probably better that I can't find this stuff anywhere, otherwise I'd be making these all the time!
