Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

White almond bark
Pretzels, regular, mini or rods
Candy melts in colors of choice

Instructions

Follow the manufacturer's instructions to melt the white almond bark in a large bowl. Stir a handful of pretzels into the melted candy. Use a fork to lift each pretzel, then carefully tap the fork on the bowl edge to remove excess candy coating. Place the candy-covered pretzels on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Melt a small amount of holidays colors in a small bowl. Dip the fork in the melted candy colors, then drizzle over the pretzels. Repeat for next color. Chill pretzels in refrigerator until set.
