As the Christmas season has begun, we're all often in a place where we need sweets -- Christmas parties, class parties, office parties, gifts for your child's teacher, girls night in, or just a time to drown some of the hustle and bustle into yummy chocolate. 

Last week while making my weekly grocery run, I picked up a bag of Plain M&M's at our local Walmart and decided to whip up an easy M&M and pretzel bark recipe. The making of any "bark" recipe is super easy and customizable which is perfect for this busy season. We included some of the bark in our Christmas-In-A-Box gift and I'm hoping to have time to make an extra batch to share at our church's women's Christmas dinner. 

Here's how you go about making this yummy Milk Chocolate M&M's and pretzel bark recipe. 

You'll need a baking sheet lined with wax paper or foil. You won't actually be baking anything, the baking sheet is just the "base" for the dessert. 

Next, break the pretzels into small pieces -- I think an inch or two in length is best.  Spread the broken pretzels and M&Ms over the baking sheet.

Next, melt the white chocolate baking morsels. Remember this is a slow process! Don't rush it or you'll burn it. I always melt my white chocolate in the microwave (I'm less likely to burn them this way) but double broiler style works too. 

Quickly pour the white chocolate over the M&Ms and pretzels. Let the white chocolate fully harden. You can speed this process up by putting the pan in the refrigerator...it helps keep toddler hands away too!

Once the white chocolate has hardened, break up the bark into munchable pieces...these can obviously be as big or small as you'd like. 

You could also recreate a "bark" recipe using other M&M products like Peanut M&M's or check out this website for other great M&M recipes. And make sure you use this coupon when you making your purchase.
