I am in a “party” kind of mood, so I wanted to share one of my favorite party snacks to make (and eat)! My Mother In-Law introduced me to this fun snack at my wedding reception! It is cute and clever with a yummy sweet and salty taste! Now it’s my go-to snack for any party. I love this party snack recipe! I admit, I even make it sometimes “just because!” 😉 It’s pretty simple, and the kids can help with a lot of it!
Here is what you’ll need:
2 Bars of White Chocolate (Bakers Chocolate is best)
56 oz. Bag of Milk Chocolate M&M’s
Small bag of Small Pretzel Sticks
To start, separate out the yellow M&M’s. I recommend a 56 oz. bag since you will only be using the yellow. This is a great activity for children! They can practice their colors and fine motor skills and help make a treat at the same time!
Next, prepare the white chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. If you purchased baker’s chocolate, it will generally have directions included on the wrapper. I recommend following the directions for those specific bars. If directions aren’t provided, a general rule of thumb is microwave in 30 second increments until it is melted all the way through.
Arrange the pretzel sticks in groups of three on the wax paper allowing about 1.5 – 2 inches of space in between each group. This is also a great activity for kids. They can again work on fine motor skills as well as counting!
Using a spoon, drop about a quarter size drop on one side of each pretzel group leaving just a little bit of pretzel peeking out on that side. It helps to hold them so they don’t separate too much. Then allow it to melt down over it. If it is thick and isn’t melting down naturally, lightly press it with the spoon.
Place the yellow M&M’s on the white chocolate drops. Make sure the “M” is facing down so it isn’t visible! Be sure to place them lightly and push down gently – not deep, but just to make sure it will be secured by the white chocolate.
Carefully place them in the refrigerator until the white chocolate has cooled. Then you’re ready to share them and enjoy!
