Candies and cookies made from scratch is a Christmas tradition in our home. We have our tried and true recipes, and each year we like to try something new. I was sent just a few treats from the Nestle line of candies to make something different for this Christmas.
I was challenge to make a treat from these two candies from Nestle. I received a Wonka Pixy Stix Giant Cane and a Wonka Nerds Fun Book to work with. The Wonka Pixy Stix are basically just sugar, and more fun to eat than to make anything with, but the Nerds - that was something that could be worked with. Here is a recipe that is kid friendly that uses the Wonka Nerds.
Frosty Nerds Dipped Pretzels
Total time to complete: 48 minutes
Is suitable for ages 3-12
Here's what you'll need:
- Wax Paper or Parchment Paper
- 13 Pretzel Rods
- 1 cup (6 ounces) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Premier White Morsels, melted according to package directions in small to medium bowl
- 2 packages (1.65 ounces each) WONKA Frosty NERDS
PLACE sheet of wax paper or parchment paper on countertop. Place wire rack over the paper to catch the drips.
DIP pretzel rods halfway into melted morsels; shake off excess (it’s best to just work with a few pretzels at a time). Place on wire rack. Alternately, drizzle melted morsels over pretzels then decorate.
DECORATE with Nerds. Allow to sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes to harden. Once hardened, remove from wire rack and store, covered, in cool place with wax paper between layers.
