We have for sure done our fair share of baking so far. This was our loot after baking supply shopping one morning last week. From this stash we made chocolate and sprinkle covered pretzels, peppermint bark and marshmallows covered in caramel, chocolate and sprinkles/peppermint candy. Divine! Here's photos on how we made the chocolate covered pretzels. So easy I don't think I can honestly call it baking since all we did for this was melt chocolate.
Years ago, probably 8 or 9, my mom bought this chocolate melting thing from QVC. It's awesome and we still use it all the time. It's wonderful, it has a high and a low switch and that's as simple as they come. After melting the chocolate, the kids took pretzels one at a time and dipped half of it in the chocolate then came over to the sprinkle sprinkling station and then we placed them on wax paper. All 150 of them.
Viola! I told you it was easy. Something about the salty and the sweet mixed together tastes oh so good. It was a fun and very simple afternoon baking project we did that the kids enjoyed. Next up, how we made homemade peppermint bark!
