This quick and easy Valentine Pretzel Crunch treat is the perfect salty/sweet combination and makes a delicious little treat. I’ve been making simple holiday treats for my kids using ingredients that I have around the house, ever since I started my Pantry Challenge, I’ve been searching my cabinets before running to the grocery store.
I had half a bag of pretzels and a few other yummy ingredients on hand (I did buy Valentine M&M’s a couple weeks ago already, just after Christmas). This made a great treat that would be a fun Valentine party favor or snack idea.
How to Make Valentine Pretzel Crunch
- 1 Bag of Pretzels
- 1 Package of Vanilla CandiQuik
- Valentine M&M’s
- Valentine Sprinkles
Step 1 – Place your pretzels in a large bowl
Step 2 – Melt your CandiQuik according to package instructions
Step 3 – Pour the melted CandiQuik over the pretzels and toss lightly
Step 4 – Spread the pretzels out on wax paper
Step 5 – Add the M&M’s and sprinkles to the pretzels before the CandiQuik hardens
Step 6 – After everything is dried, bread into pieces and enjoy!
If you want to make these into Valentine favors, simply add a little into a treat bag and add a cute little cut out heart with a note. This would be a great classroom treat or neighborhood goodie to hand out.
You could also add Valentine Conversation hearts to the mix and make it even more festive. This is such a great treat, I love the salty and sweet combination. Plus, it’s so easy to make!
Even though my boys aren’t big into Valentine’s Day, if you put a treat like this in front of them they love it and it’s gone pretty fast.
