Holiday Pretzels

Prep: 20 minutes plus chilling • Serves: 14

1 package (1 pound 4 ounces) vanilla-flavored almond bark
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons caramel bits
1 package (12 ounces) pretzel rods (about 28 pretzels)
2 tablespoons crushed candy canes
2 tablespoons holiday sprinkles
2 tablespoons mini candy-coated milk chocolate candies

1. Line rimmed baking pan with parchment paper. Melt almond bark as label directs; stir in vegetable oil. In small microwave-safe bowl, heat caramel bits and 1-1/2 teaspoons water in microwave oven 20 seconds or until mostly melted; stir to combine.

2. Working with 1 pretzel at a time, dip 3/4 of the pretzel into almond bark (reheat almond bark as necessary if it begins to harden); place on prepared pan and immediately sprinkle with candy canes, sprinkles and/or chocolate candies, and/or drizzle with caramel. Refrigerate 30 minutes or until hardened. Makes about 28 pretzels.
