Round Two

Ahhhh…much better. (Thanks for the red and green chocolate idea, B.)

Ready to go in the oven

Ahh yes. Only takes me twice to get the easiest recipe in the world right.

Wrapping them in tissue paper for gifts.

Tying them up all pretty like.

And putting them in a pretty tin.

Don’t worry, you can still see the failed Round 1.

Holiday Pretzels

I just got back from the gym. I ran a super sweaty (and therefore super slow) 7.1 miles and walked 1.4 miles. Those 7.1 were not consecutive because the gym was crowded and hot today. But I was determined to put in some mileage even with people staring at my sweaty goodness. I thought about getting a picture of how I looked after the run, but then decided that no one needs to see that. No one.

Before the gym, I decided to make a test batch of holiday pretzels. I want to make these for the hub’s parents on Christmas Eve. I got the recipe off of a blog I love, Peanut Butter Fingers. They looked super easy, and super tasty.

The recipe calls for three ingredients: pretzels, red and green m&ms, and white chocolate discs. This is the part where I suggest you not deviate from a recipe. Especially when your idea of “getting creative” is microwaving a hot dog and putting it in a tortilla.

Exhibit A: What mine looked like.

White chocolate morsels do not melt like a disc of chocolate.

So lumpy they could do the Lumpty Dance

Exhibit B:  What they’re supposed to look like.
