I made these wintry pretzel treats as a special after school snack today. I melted chocolate chips in the microwave and then spooned the chocolate over pretzel rods. Then I added mini chocolate chips, nonpareils, snowflake sprinkles, or blue candy melt drizzle to each of the pretzels.
They remind me of one of our favorite winter books, Here Comes Jack Frost by Kazuno Kohara.
The main character is a young boy who is lonely because all of his friends are hibernating. Just when he thinks that he hates winter, Jack Frost appears and they have a great time playing in the snow and ice. Jack Frost warns the boy that he must never mention anything warm in his presence or Jack will have to leave. I'll let you read the book to find out what happens!
