The Best Daddy Ever!

My honey surprised us and brought home ingredients so he could make us an Oh-So-Tasty-Primo-Treat after supper last night…Chocolate Peppermint Dipped Pretzels! Oh yeah! We’re spoiled!


*Pretzel Rods (fat ones, skinny ones or use both!)
*Ghirardelli premium milk chocolate baking chips ~ 10 oz bag
*Andes Peppermint crunch baking chips ~ 10 oz bag
*1 T shortening
*foil lined tray for setting up (we used foil and a styrofoam plate; both worked just fine)

{ We……..well, when I say we, I really mean he…anyway, he doubled this recipe since there are 10 of us and we really like chocolate.} He used a double boiler on the stovetop to melt the chocolate chips and the shortening together in the pan. (I know some melt the chocolate in the microwave, but we personally prefer the stovetop.)



Place tray or plate of dipped pretzels in the refrigerator for 30 seconds minutes to allow chocolate to harden. Harden-schmarden. Hardened chocolate is highly overrated. That, and I am impatient.


How handsome is a man in the kitchen with a dishtowel thrown over his shoulder…cuter than any Food Network star! ‘Nough said.


A bite of a chocolate peppermint dipped pretzel with a cup of hot cappuccino…mmmmm, it’s soooo good!
My hubby enjoyed black coffee with his…


Needless to say, Daddy is the best Daddy EVER!


Enjoy one another! Merry Christmas!

Walking with Jesus,

  2. Melissa, these look fantastic! I’ve been working on the stockings for the little ones in our family today, but I think I may have to sneak in this last treat tomorrow night before Santa comes. šŸ™‚ Thanks for coming by my blog!
