Do you have a holiday treat that your family makes every single year?  For us, that treat would be Chocolate Covered Pretzels. I love how quick and easy they are to make and the fact that you only need 3 ingredients.  Plus, who doesn’t love chocolate!

Of course with all the sweets we eat during the holidays it’s a must to have an extra strength toothpaste such as Crest Pro-Health. Crest Pro-Health helps you advance to healthier gums and stronger teeth with benefits that help protect against areas dentists check most.  While you are at Target picking up the supplies for your holiday baking also pick up Crest Pro-Health so you can keep your teeth healthy.

Want to make some chocolate covered pretzels for your family and friends too?   Here is what you need:

  • Pretzel Rods
  • Milk Chocolate Chips (or melting chocolate)
  • Sprinkles, Nuts, or Crushed Candy Canes

I like to cut the pretzels in half, it makes more treats and you get a better chocolate to pretzel ratio.  More chocolate is always a good thing. I use a bread knife to saw a little notch in the pretzel and then I snap it in half.

Warm the chocolate chips in a double broiler on low heat.  Once the chocolate is melted cover 2/3 of the pretzels with chocolate.  Make sure you cover the broken end of the pretzel rod in the chocolate.

Set the pretzel rods on wax paper to cool.   While they are cooling cover with festive holiday sprinkles, chopped nuts or crushed candy canes.  I personally love the combination of chocolate and peppermint, but most of my family prefers the sprinkles.

While I do love the crunch and taste of peppermint candy canes they do tend to get stuck in my teeth, which makes it even more important to have Crest Pro-Health toothpaste on hand.  You will find a $2 coupon in your local Sunday newspaper on 11/25.  Make sure you clip the coupon and head to Target to save!

Crest toothpaste is the best option for our family, it’s so convenient to find a Crest toothpaste to fit everyone’s needs.  The Crest Pro-Health with Whitening Power helps to remove surface stains on your teeth and it has a great minty flavor that helps freshen your breath.  It works hard on fighting cavities, gingivitis, acid erosion, sensitivity, plaque and tartar.  That’s one hard working toothpaste!  Don’t forget to clip the high value $2 off coupon in the Sunday paper.
