Chocolate Pretzel Fudge

Fudge + pretzels = Scrumptious!

This is an easy fudge to make.  It’s a variation of Mocha Fudge.  Just melt the ingredients together and throw in a handful of broken pretzel pieces.  Lick the pan.  Then wait.  And wait.  And wait a bit more.

About 3 hours in the fridge later and it’s ready to cut and eat.

Rolo Turtles

Please forgive all the sweets this week.  I’m trying to post plenty of holiday treat recipes in case you’re still looking for baking inspiration.  Tomorrow, I’ll post an appetizer but then it will be back to a few more sweet treats.

You can’t go wrong with sweet-salty candy.  I found these on Mommy’s Kitchen.  Tina always has such yummy things on her blog.  These candies are easy to make, and taste great.  Tina also made some with pecan halves pressed in the top, which sounds great to me, but I decided to go with M&Ms to make the kids happy.

Butterscotch Snack Mix


Need to satisfy an extra big snack craving?  This is your recipe.  It makes a bunch.  And I warn you – if you start munching it, you won’t be able to stop.  I adapted the recipe from an old Taste of Home magazine.  The original called for Crispix Cereal, which I couldn’t find.  Do they even make that anymore?  I also changed a few other things.

Frito Candy

Every time I make this candy it is a hit. It’s the perfect combination of sweet and salty. I found the recipe on Cookie Madness, an excellent blog that you should enter at your own risk (try not to drool on your keyboard when you visit that site!).

Gather up your ingredients:

2 cups of pretzels
1 cup fritos
8 mini peanut butter cups
1 stick of butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 bag of chocolate chips

Break the pretzels and fritos up with your hands. Place them in a 9×13 pan that is lined with parchment paper or no-stick foil. Coarsely chop up the peanut butter cups and scatter them in the pan as well.

Melt the butter over medium heat, then stir in the brown sugar. Bring it to a full boil and boil 1 minute, stirring once or twice. Pour this mixture over the pretzel/frito/peanut butter cups. Bake for 8 minutes at 350 degrees. Take the pan out of the oven and sprinkle with chocolate chips. Pop it back in the oven for a minute to melt the chips. Spread the chocolate over the top. Cool and then refridgerate for a while. Take it out of the pan and break it up, using a knife to cut it into rough pieces.
