I love making holiday treats for my friends and family. Here is one of my go to recipes. It as easy to make as it is delicious.
Place a slow cooker liner in a crock pot. Add the candy coating, white chocolate, and shortening. Stir to combine. Cover and cook on low setting for 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until the mixture is melted and smooth. Stir every 30 minutes. Stir in the extract, pretzels, and peppermint candy. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Drop the candy mixture by heaping teaspoons onto the baking sheet. Let stand t room temp until firm.
Melt the dark chocolate in a microwave. Place the melted chocolate into a plastic bag and snip off a small hole in one corner. Drizzle the chocolate over the candies. You can also sprinkle with more crushed peppermint candy. Let stand until firm.
This candy is great to eat by itself or paired with a cup of delicious hot chocolate.
