We've got some great ideas for stocking stuffers and gift ideas that involve pretzels you're going to love. All covered in this post, from your friends at!

Kids Love Pretzels

Whether your kids know you're really Santa or not really doesn't matter: they still expect someone to fill their stockings! Did you know there are some cool, easy ways to make holiday pretzels - for instance, from regular, plain pretzel rods? Then these delicious goodies can be individually wrapped, and make amazing stocking stuffers! (You can make other similarly easy pretzel recipes, see our blog on Holiday Pretzel Recipes!) Children can't get enough candy over the Christmas holiday, so why not make some pretzel turtles for a different kind of candy? Let's find out just how easy making turtle candy and pretzel rod candy is.

Simple Christmas Holiday Pretzel Treats 

Holiday Chocolate Dipped Pretzel Rods

To make terrific sweet and salty treats for the holiday with pretzels, start with pretzel rods and take different types of chips - regular chocolate, white chocolate, butterscotch, etc. - and melt in the microwave, adding a tablespoon of coconut oil until smooth and creamy. Dip pretzel rods in regular chocolate, white chocolate, and/or butterscotch about ¾ of the way, then sprinkle with crushed candy canes by rolling it in a dish with the crushed candy while still wet. Try sprinkles and nuts for different variations, and refrigerate for 15 minutes or until set. You can make them individually wrapped into sets of 3 with cellophane and tie with a green or red ribbon for a delicious and festive Christmas gift! 

Holiday Pretzel Turtles

For this classic holiday treat with lots of chocolate and caramel, start with regular pretzels and put them in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Heat oven to 350° degrees. Take a Rolo chocolate covered caramel and unwrap them, setting one in the center of each pretzel. Pop them in the oven for 5-7 minutes until soft and starting to melt, but not too much. Take a pecan half and set it in the center of each one, slightly pressing down to spread out, and cool until set in the refrigerator. Voilá! It's that easy. Chocolate, caramel, pecan and pretzel - it's an absolutely amazing combination!
