I know, I know. I’m all about the peppermint lately! But with good reason. I mean, it’s festive, right? And because I just couldn’t get enough of the Peppermint Bark Pretzels, I decided to go big…or go home! So, I went big with these Peppermint Bark Pretzel Rods! Very similar to the Peppermint Bark Pretzels I shared the other day, only these are bigger (and more colorful)!
I know you came here for the Peppermint Bark Pretzel Rods recipe, so lets just get to it, why don’t we!
Peppermint Bark Pretzel Rods
Peppermint Bark Pretzel Rods
Peppermint Bark Pretzel Rods! A perfect, festive treat for the holiday season. Give as a gift, serve at your next party. I don't care what you do with them, as long as someone enjoys them 🙂
- 10 peppermints, crushed (I used Atkinson's Mint Twists
- 1 pkg (12 oz.) Wilton Candy Melts
- 1 cup Wilton Candy Melts
- 12-16 pretzel rods, depending on how heavy you coat them
- plastic baggies
- wax paper
You can also purchase Crushed Peppermint Candy to save yourself a step.
These Peppermint Bark Pretzel Rods can get pretty messy, so that wax paper totally comes in handy. Once you’re done, simply throw away the wax paper and voila, cleanup is done!
If you are not absolutely enamored with peppermint like I am, you can always use less. I just really like peppermint, y’all. But feel free to tailor it to your taste buds!
Want to get the kids in the kitchen with you? These Peppermint Bark Pretzel Rods are perfect for that. My 7-year old son loved helping me with these. His favorite part was drizzling the white over the top!
My favorite part was eating them, y’all! Gah, and do you know how many burpees I had to do at the gym to work those bad boys off?!? But it was so worth it!
Do you have a favorite holiday treat?

These look soooo yummy! I actually have some chocolate melts set aside to make something like this, but I think I might pick up some peppermint, too!
Looks easy enough! Now to find those huge pretzels at our store – they’re always sold out!
Yes, I do love the taste of peppermint and these pretzel rods would not last long around me! They really sound pretty easy to make and would make a great gift to take to a friends house as well.

You can’t go wrong with peppermint on anything, especially pretzels. I need to make some more!

MMMM-MMMM-MMMM! Those pretzel rods look delicious! And I bet they’d make a great gift, too!
I love anything ginger flavored. But these look really yummy. Peppermint comes in a close second.

This is brilliant! I always make peppermint bark and chocolate covered pretzels but I never thought to combine them.
Oh YUM! These look seriously amazing! I love peppermint park…and chocolate and pretzels always belong together!

These are so much fun. I remember making these for the kids when they were younger.
Wow! Those look too pretty to eat. What a great homemade gift or stocking stuffer. I bet my five year old would like to help with making this recipe too.
