I love giving edible gifts to family and friends over the holidays, what about you? When I was thinking about what I could make this year that involves DOVE® Chocolate PROMISES, I knew I had to make a chocolate pretzel bark. I love the combination of salty and sweet for this treat!

I’m hoping this holiday season isn’t getting too hectic for you. When things get crazy for our family, we make sure to take time to sit down, enjoy our Christmas tree and listen to holiday music together.

I love unwrapping the DOVE Chocolate PROMISES…the sayings inside are so cute! Like ‘Spread chocolate and cheer’ and ‘Friendship is the greatest gift’!

You can use a double boiler or you can use a microwave. I used the microwave to melt the chocolate.

I always mix after each interval in the microwave because you don’t want to burn the chocolate.

Refrigerate the bark in the fridge and then when you’re ready, cut them into pieces.

I snuck a few taste tests after I cut up the chocolate pretzel bark. It’s soooo good! The perfect amount of salty and sweetness.

I brought them to my doctor’s office as well as to the physical therapy center I go to, they really enjoyed this chocolate candy gift! And it put a smile on their faces!

I love that journaling gives me some much needed time to myself during the holidays, this is the time I truly enjoy and I really look forward to. It’s important to take a break this holiday season, how will you #ChoosePleasure and focus on yourself during this busy time of year?

Chocolate Pretzel Bark Recipe

Ingredients:

  • Three (8.87-ounce) bags Silky Smooth DOVE PROMISES Milk Chocolate (about 96 pieces)
  • About 1/3 of a 16-ounce bag of mini pretzels (about 50 pieces)
  • 15 piecesSilky Smooth DOVE PROMISES Dark Chocolate (about 1/2 bag)
  • Your favorite sprinkles

Directions:

  1. Prep a baking sheet with a silicon baking mat or parchment paper.
  2. In a double boiler, melt the milk chocolate. Or if you’re using the microwave, make sure it’s at 50% power and heat for 30 seconds at a time, for a told of 60 seconds. After each interval, stir the chocolate with a spoon. Then, microwave for 15 seconds at a time, for a total of 45 seconds, until it’s melted. Be sure to stir after each interval. You may not need the entire time that I needed to, depending on your microwave.
  3. Spread most of the milk chocolate onto the prepared baking sheet. Using an angled spatula smooth the chocolate out and spread it across the baking mat. Place pretzels on top and press down, if needed. Drizzle some of the remaining milk chocolate with a spoon.
  4. In a double boiler, melt the dark chocolate. Or if you’re using the microwave, make sure it’s at 50% power and heat 15 seconds at a time, for a total of about 60 seconds. Be sure to stir the chocolate after each interval. You may not need the entire time I needed to melt the dark chocolate, it depends on your microwave.
  5. Drizzle the dark chocolate on top. Add your favorite sprinkles. And place the baking sheet in the refrigerator for at least 60 minutes. Remove and cut into pieces. Place into goodie bags and tie with kitchen twine for a gift or party favor.
