Even though we featured a whole bunch of surcees on Tuesday, we have one more for you today! This one definitely embodies a thoughtful gift given unexpectedly or for no reason — one of my favorite kinds!
Says Amber Housley, the designer and stylist:
I love this time of year because the packaging and supplies in stores are in such cheerful hues! These take-out boxes from World Market in wide range of Easter egg inspired colors would make perfect vessels for a sweet treat such as these confetti pretzels. You can whip up a large batch of these in no time at all, and they’ll make a great gift for your spring gatherings and friends.
What you’ll need:
— large snack-size pretzels
— white vanilla candy melting chips
— candy confetti sprinkles
— mixing bowl
— cookie sheet, lined with wax paper
— microwave or double boiler to melt the vanilla candy chips
— colorful take-out boxes and stuffing to gift the finished pretzels (in addition to World Market, we like checking out the Container Store, Michaels, and Target for fun vessels! Online, Shop Sweet Lulu is a treasure trove!)
Step 1: Melt the candy chips in a bowl by using the microwave and stirring every 30 seconds or using a double boiler until chips are melted.
Step 2: Dip the pretzels until covered then hold over bowl, allowing the excess coating to drip off.
Step 3: Place the pretzels on the wax paper covered cookie sheet in a single layer. Sprinkle with candy confetti as desired then place sheet in refrigerator for at least 15 minutes or until set.
Step 4: Carefully pull pretzels up from wax paper and package in take-out box containers for gift giving!
