My Name Is Snickerdoodle: Chocolate Peppermint Pretzels

Chocolate Peppermint Pretzels

Today we took down all of our Christmas decorations and were left with a few needles on the carpet. Our living room instantly was large again and all of our furniture looked bare.  It's always a bittersweet moment for me.  I absolutely love having Christmas up in our house!  I'm a classic red, green and white kind of decorator. 
We still have plenty of Christmas goodies around the house including plenty of candy canes!  I couldn't resist making a batch of these tasty Peppermint Pretzels to kick the new year off with.  I'll be staring my resolutions to eat a little better another day!

I really like to use Ande's Baking Bits to dip things in because it sets up really well.  It's not as temperamental as regular chocolate.
