You know those cookies or snacks that just scream the Holidays?
Well in my family these Sweet and Salty Treats are it.
I can remember making these candies with mom year after year.
3 ingredients to the perfect Holiday snack.
Something Salty + Coating + Sprinkles
Now, the something salty could be anything from peanuts to pretzels (I wouldn’t recommend French fries… just sayin’).
Our favorite salty components have always been pretzels and Ritz crackers…
I think I may have paid $5 for this gigantic tub of pretzel fun.
Anyhoo… you take something salty and set it aside…
Then you choose a coating… it could be chocolate, white chocolate, butterscotch chips, almond bark, etc.
I used Dove White Chocolate and Ghirardelli Classic White Chips.
Now melt your coating according to your package’s instructions…
Those BABIES were stuck like edible glue…
Yummy delicious glue… but glue none-the-less.
There were casualties… but fear not, there was plenty of help to clean up the evidence ;).
Anyhoo, turns out mom’s old fashioned wax paper and plate was a far superior method for letting these treats dry.
You can pop the plate into the freezer to speed up the setting process.
