We always make this as a Christmas treat. It is so fast and easy to make and it tastes so good with the sweet/crunchy/salty combination. It also looks quite festive.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat candy melts over very low heat or in double boiler until melted.
  2. Stir in pretzels, cranberries and almonds.
  3. Spread onto a large waxed paper lined cookie sheet.
  4. Put in refrigerator for a few minutes to harden.
  5. Break into pieces and store in airtight container.
  6. NOTE: White chocolate baking chips can be substituted for the candy melts but you will need to add 2 tsp of shortening when melting to make it of spreading consistency.

This is very good-I forgot the pretzel sticks (woulda been even better with that sweet/salty combo)-but it was still good. I used crushed lightly salted peanuts and cherry flavored craisins. I will make this again!!!!

This is just great! I used white chocolate chips and added the 2 teaspoons of shortening- thats what I always do when making chocolate covered pretzels. This was better though! I loved the dried cranberries and didn't have almonds, so I used toasted walnut peices and it was delicious! So simple too!
