That’s how many I made this afternoon. You can see some of them in the new blog banner.
We call these “Pretzel Buttons,” and I’ve been making them for years. Pretty much if there are seasonal M&Ms in the stores, I’ll make PBs. There’s no recipe, really, just lay out the pretzel rings on a long strip of wax paper, melt almond bark in the microwave, spoon the bark into each pretzel, and top with an M&M. (Don’t try melting the bark all at once. Heat for a minute or two, stir, then another minute, stir. Stop heating it when there are still some lumps; they’ll melt as you stir. And careful — your bowl is very hot!)
Have something entertaining playing in the background, as this is pretty tedious work. An assistant is either a help or a liability, depending on their technique and how many of the ingredients they consume in the process.
Most of today’s batch will be part of the B.U.N.S.* project for our county Hospice, some will go with us tomorrow night as a hostess gift, some will be packaged up and hidden away for camp later this month, and the rest will hang around here for … not too long.
