Fans of sweet and salty flavor combinations are immediately drawn to this Easter Egg Pretzel Bark. In it, flat pretzels are topped with salted peanuts then smothered in melted chocolate and peanut butter chips. Arrange colorful peanut M&M’s on top then let it sit until hardened enough to break apart and enjoy.
Easter Egg Candy
Easter and Easter egg candy treats go hand in hand and in my opinion, so do sweet and salty flavor combinations. This chocolate pretzel bark is simple, festive and a great opportunity to get the kids creativity involved in the preparation. They can help by arranging the pretzel crisps on the pan and stirring the chocolate peanut butter mixture when needed. Let them have fun arranging the colorful eggs on top after everything is covered in the melted chocolate and peanut butter chips.It gives them some insight into how make holiday sweets plus, the memories made are irreplaceable.
For the salty layer I use flat pretzels and peanuts and any brand will do. You can use cocktail peanuts or dry roasted feel free to go with your personal preference. Package and give this Easter Egg Pretzel Bark as gifts or fill your family’s Easter baskets with a homemade treat this year.
