Princess & Me: Ariel’s Peppermint Pretzel Bites

Princess Ariel may live on land at the palace, but tonight is a special exception. Princess Ariel is swimming back to meet her family under the sea for a holiday celebration! Sebastian will be leading the music, and Ariel’s mersisters have covered the underwater ballroom in beautiful sea anemones. A good guest always brings along a special treat to contribute to their host’s feast, and Ariel spent an entire week thinking up the perfect holiday recipe.

Peppermint Pretzel Bites are the perfect sweet and salty snack, and just as easy to make as they are delicious. Before Ariel leaves, she has just enough time to make a quick batch to bring as a tasty addition to the banquet.

Step One: Gather your ingredients.

You will need:

Step Five: Bake for 4-6 minutes. Once the chocolates are soft to the touch, remove from oven and onto a cooling rack.

Step Six: Quickly press an M&M’s candy into the center of each Hershey’s kiss. Make sure the “m” symbol is face down so it doesn’t show in the finished result! Wait several minutes for the candy to cool, then place in the refrigerator for 10 minutes to set.
