Chaos, Peace, and Almond Bark Pretzels

I can basically break every year down into two parts.  I call them Chaos and Peace.  Peace starts in February once our taxes are submitted and lasts until August.  Chaos starts with runs through "back to school" time, birthdays for Colton, CheyAnn, Kira, my sister, my mother, Katelyn, myself, and my husband, and also includes Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.  It is then punctuated with preparing for taxes in January and submitting them in February.  By then I welcome Peace with a sigh of relief.

Why am I rambling about this?  Well, as I have begun thinking about what fun cake designs to do for the three kids who have August birthdays and thinking of how Chaos is about to begin, that got me thinking about the holidays and one of our favorite Christmas treats that is seriously so easy it is almost embarrassing to call it a "recipe":  Almond Bark Pretzels!  We make lots of them every Christmas....some to give away to friends, some to eat while we make more, and some for during the Christmas holiday.

So here it is...Almond Bark Pretzels!!!

I like to use the little knot pretzels or else the really big fat pretzels sticks for this, but you can use whatever your favorite type of pretzel is...

Melt Almond Bark (found by the chocolate chips at the grocery store) in your crock pot on low heat.

Using a fork or some other utensil to avoid burning your fingers, dip the pretzels into the melted almond bark and then let them cool/dry on waxed paper.

Yep.  That's it.  If it is Christmas I usually sprinkle a little green or red colored sugar on them just to make them look festive. must try these!
