A Quick, Easy & Delicious Holiday Treat

11 Dec

You know that feeling when you’re going out to dinner with some friends and it’s kind of near the holidays so you’re not totally sure if you’re supposed to bring them gifts? And then they BOTH end up bringing you a sweet little something and you have nothing to give them?

I hate that feeling!

So around this time of year, I usually keep a little somethin’ somethin’ around for exactly that situation. I figure I’d share it with you in case you wanted to try it for your friends too!

Now, I’m no Rachel Ray or that BAM guy, so this recipe is pretty much the easiest thing ever. The goal isn’t for it to show off your mad baking skills, it’s to have something cute and tasty!

Here we go:

1

I used this super cute Martha Stewart Treat Set from Scribble Shop!

2

Here’s the rest of the ingredients — rolos and pretzels. That’s it.

3

Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Put a rolo on each pretzel. I also put down foil wrap to contain the mess because I’m lazy.

4

Bake for 5 minutes until rolos are all smushy. Then add another pretzel on top and smoosh them all together. It’s okay if you get chocolate on your fingers — you can totally lick that off later.

5

Once the smooshing is complete, stick the whole pan in your freezer. My freezer is obviously smurf-sized because this is the biggest pan that will fit.

6

After the chocolate has re-hardened, put 10 in a sandwich baggie. Shove the baggie into the adorable treat box.

7

Close box and add on ribbon and sticker. Isn’t it CUTE?!

8

What’s cuter than one box? Oh, just a PILE of little boxes of treats!

There you go, it’s super easy… but yummy. And obviously it’s more delicious than something store bought because it was made with love in my own kitchen. No BAM required.

If you’d like to get your very own Martha Stewart Treat Set, they are less than $9.00 at the Scribble Shop here.

Disclaimer: This post was not sponsored and all my opinions are my own. However, the Scribble Shop gave me $25.00 to spend on whatever I’d like and I bought these treat boxes along with some other cute stuff that I may be blogging about in the future.

    I am planning on making candy this year to hand out instead of cookies (don’t laugh, I haven’t burned down my kitchen yet.) I was trying to think of a twist on chocolate covered pretzels because that’s so done, and I think I might try these. I love easy cheater recipes!
