So, in my pre-vegan days, the classic perfect cookie tray snack was a pretzel with a Hershey's kiss melted on top, and an M&M pushed into the slightly melted chocolate. They're incredibly delicious, but not vegan. They also looked like boobies. But I digress. This year, I decided to go ahead and make a new, veganized version. To replace the M&M I opted for the peanut, and honestly, it may be better than the original. Feel free to use an almond, cashew, or whatever nut you like, or a raisin might be bomb as well.
Make these by the trayload. Gift them on their own or add them to a cookie tray. I promise, everyone loves them.
What you'll need:
1 bag pretzels (classic shaped small ones)
1 bag semisweet chocolate chips
1 bag white chocolate chips
Peanuts or other nut or candy of your choice
Piping bag fitted with a large tip or a gallon ziploc bag with the tip cut off.
Melt the chips in a large bowl in the microwave for two minutes (If you don't use the microwave, a double boiler works as well.)
Stir until completely smooth, which may take a few minutes, but eventually it'll be smooth.
Pour the mixture into the piping bag or ziploc.
Pipe directly onto pretzels, doing a squeeze then let off and pull up to create the kiss-like shape.
Either pipe in sections then press the peanut into the top, or have someone else press the peanuts in as you pipe.
Allow to sit for at least an hour, but overnight is ideal to get the firmness that makes these snacks the best.
Enjoy by the handful!
