Candy Dipped Pretzels & More!

Cover

These Marshmallow Pops & Pretzels took under twenty minutes to make from start to finish and they turned out adorable! All you need is:

Medium Marshmallows

Pretzel Rods (work best) or Pretzel Minis

Sprinkles of your choice or Coconut Flakes

Candy Melts

Parchment Paper

Paper Straws or sticks

  1. First cut a small slit in the top of the marshmallows to allow you to insert your straw. If you skip this step you just might squish your marshmallows!
  1. Insert the straws or popsicle sticks and put them in the freezer for about 5-10 minutes. They do not take long to freeze and by doing this, the marshmallow is adhered more securely to the straw.  Oopsie
  1. Meanwhile, melt the candies in the microwave on medium heat and stir every 30 seconds. White chocolate seems to burn a lot easier than regular chocolate so watch it closely! Add your food coloring if desired. I used pre colored candy melts. They have so many colors to choose from you could whip these up for almost any occasion.
  1. Next up is the fun part: decorating! Dip the frozen marshmallows in the candy melts. You will want to tap the excess off. The frozen marshmallow will make the candy melt harden quickly so don’t wait too long before dipping them into the sprinkles. (I used cupcake holders for my sprinkles! They made clean up a breeze and made getting the sprinkles back in the container much easier.)
  2. Same steps (minus freezing) for your pretzel rods or minis. You can see below, one bag made quite a bit. “P” is one happy camper right now!2

Five Ingredient Buffalo Chicken Roll Ups

Huge hit during the holidays! I had to add onions just to keep “B” from inhaling them before I can serve them. I did find that using tortillas that were a bit older worked better…

Five Ingredient Buffalo Chicken Roll Ups

Prep Time: 20 minutes  Total Time: 20 minutes  Serving Size: 40-45 pinwheels

roll ups

Ingredients
1 cup shredded cooked chicken
6 ounces light cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup Frank’s Red hot sauce
3 green onions, thinly sliced
4 – 6 inch flour tortillas

Instructions

1. Mix chicken, cream cheese, hot sauce and green onions until combined.

Spread on to tortillas.

2. Wrap tortillas up jelly-roll style and cut into 1/2 inch slices. Pop into the fridge to chill for 10 minutes. If serving later, individually wrap rolls in plastic, before cutting and chill in the fridge.

3. Garnish with sliced green onion

Until next time…

Hawaiian Ham & Swiss Sliders


“B’ asks for these almost on a daily basis! I have to admit-pretty damn good. Great for a grab and go snack plus they keep well in the fridge.

Hot-Ham-and-Cheese-Sliders-with-a-buttery-mustard-glaze

Prep time: 10 minutes  Cook time: 20 minutes Serves: 12

Ingredients

24 Slices of deli honey ham
6 Slices of swiss cheese, cut into fourths
1/3 cup Mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Poppy seeds
1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/2 cup Butter melted
1 tablespoon Onion Powder
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 packages (12 count) KING’S HAWAIIAN Original Hawaiian Sweet Dinner Rolls

Preparation

Step 1

Cut rolls in half and spread mayo onto 1 side of the rolls. Place a slice or two of ham and slice of swiss cheese in roll. Replace the top of the rolls and bunch them closely together into a baking dish.

Step 2

In a medium bowl, whisk together poppy seeds, dijon mustard, melted butter, onion powder and worcestershire sauce.

Step 3

Pour sauce over the rolls, just covering the tops. Cover with foil and let sit for 10 minutes.

Step 4

Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Uncover and cook for additional 2 minutes until tops are slightly browned and crisp. Serve warm.

I found that “P” cleaned her plate better if I used less poppy seeds. (picky toddlers…)

Sharing one of my “Pins I didn’t fail” projects with y’all today. For princess P’s birthday this year I decided to try on my party planner hat and dove right into Pinterest. I have been making B’s hair fall out at an alarming rate, with all the new projects I have on my list and all. Now, I know all about the blog dedicated to the best Pinterest fails. I know it can make people a bit timid, but just take a look…
