What I made for Christmas giveaways

 

IMG_7712So I had been sick, really sick for past so many days. I do not even remember since when. I finished two rounds of antibiotics but got sick again two days later. Then someone in the family told me to get some anti-allergy, and I found relief in my kids Benadryl syrup. No I still did not get to sleep, but it definitely helped. By the way I was wondering, why are OTC anti-allergy medicines are so expensive? 

On another note I missed a birthday and so many days of productivity. 

And then last Tuesday I realized schools are closing for holidays and I haven’t got any thing for teachers for Christmas. I like to create gifts and presents myself. It gives those things a personal touch I feel. 

But there was neither time, nor energy or brain to shop or plan. So I Googled and found this amazing thing- White chocolate peppermint pretzels.

Took only three ingredients, about 3 hours and some mason jars that I had bought some time back. And yes a lot of fight and struggle with my macho number 3 as he was constantly trying either to pull down the chocolate bowl or break the pretzels.

Just sharing the recipe-Its a great activity to do with children as well (Hint hint winter holidays)

Ingredients
  1. Store bought pretzel rods
  2. White chocolate block/s
  3. Crushed candy cane
Instructions
  1. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper
  2. Place crushed candy canes in a bowl and set aside
  3. Break the chocolate bar in small pieces, place in a microwave safe bowl and heat it for 15 seconds
  4. Remove, stir well, place back in the microwave
  5. Repeat until the chocolate is all melted and no chunks are visible
  6. Pour it into a skinny and tall cup/jar
  7. Dip pretzel rods in the chocolate and place on parchment paper.
  8. Sprinkle with candy cane pieces and/or sprinkles and let set.
Notes
  1. You can simply melt chocolate by placing it in a double broiler. It just won't give it the crisp texture on solidifying and will still feel soggy and wet to touch
  2. I chose the shorter pretzel rods but you can opt for any size
  3. There are no measurements per say. However 1 cup of melted white chocolate yields about 30-35 pretzels.
  4. You can try it with milk chocolate as I find kids love it better than the white one
