No matter how many fun Christmas activities we do each year, one thing is constant, we always make Christmas treats together.
My girls love to help out in the kitchen and as they’ve gotten older, they’ve been able to do more and more themselves.
One of their favorite things to make are these White Chocolate Pretzels. They’re so easy and my girls can do much of the work themselves.
I’m going to show you how you can make these pretzels and how to turn them into a pretty handmade gift.
I’ve got a set of six printable gift tags for you to use on this or any other gift. Head to the end of this post to download and print your gift tags.

White Chocolate Pretzels Ingredients
(Makes approximately 6 dozen pretzels)
12 oz. white candy melt*
*Note on white candy melt – My grocery store sells white candy melt in blocks. It’s also called white bark or almond bark. You can also usually find packages of white candy melt in disc form with the cake supplies in many craft and grocery stores.
How to Make White Chocolate Pretzels
Melt your white candy melt according to package directions. Most have microwave directions. I put mine in the microwave for 30 seconds. When you pull it out, it still looks like it is in solid form. It will melt more once you stir. It’s very important that you stir your candy melt after it’s first time in the microwave before deciding to reheat it more. Mine melted completely with a bit of stirring. If you overheat the white candy melt, it can become gritty and unusable.
Use a fork to dip your pretzels in your melted candy coating. The fork will help the extra candy melt drip back into the bowl.
Place your dipped pretzels on wax paper to cool and harden. Sprinkle your pretzels with your choice of sprinkles immediately after you pull them out of the candy melt. You want to sprinkle your pretzels before they start cooling. We would stop and sprinkle after about every five pretzels.
Let the pretzels cool completely before packaging (or eating).
My girls, ages 6 and 8, are able to make these pretzels almost completely by themselves. I will melt the chocolate, then let them take over. They love being able to take ownership over the whole process. I will note that when my girls make these, we get considerably less pretzels out of a batch. They are really generous with the candy coating! I made a batch by myself and ended up with 6-1/2 dozen. Their batch had 3-1/2 dozen!
Package it up with these pretty Christmas gift tags
These white chocolate pretzels are such a great idea for a homemade gift. Fill up a mason jar with pretzels and tie a pretty gift tag around the mouth. It’s so pretty and so easy!
I created a set of simple round labels that look great on a mason jar. Just download and print a set on white card stock. There are six labels on a page.
Spread the joy! Candy-coated pretzels are too yummy to keep them all yourself.
