Two years ago I was the Men and Women’s Golf Graduate Assistant here at Ball State and every year they have an awesome joined Christmas Party. Both of these teams are so amazing… I can’t wait to join the Men’s Team next semester! This year I was asked to bring some snack type foods prior to the main dinner. I’ve been super excited about Christmas so I decided to make Chocolate Covered Pretzels, nuts, nut clusters, and the list goes on. I had way too much fun making these and I probably got a little carried away, but they were so easy and once I got started I just wanted to keep going haha.
Once I got everything together, I started to melt the chocolate and cut parchment paper to fit onto baking pans. I know parchment paper can be a little expensive, but it is totally worth it when baking or making something like this because nothing sticks (very easy clean up and nicer looking treats)
Now the fun begins where you get creative! Other than pretzels, nuts, and nut clusters you could use Ritz Crackers (highly recommend), Saltines, or dip cookies into your favorite kind of chocolate! Decorate with your favorite kind of sprinkle… get festive 🙂
- Cool everthing in the refrigerator before packing away or storing
- Make great gifts!
- Be careful not to burn the chocolate
- Mix the different kinds of chocolate (dark, milk, bittersweet, etc.)
- Use your favorite sprinkles and decorations 😉
