The time of holiday parties are here and if you’re anything like me, you’re always looking for fun and EASY new treats to bring to your events. I recently watched Creativebug’s Dipped Pretzels and Cookies class and have decided dipping EVERYTHING in chocolate is the best idea ever and make perfect holiday party treats. The class was only five minutes long, but gave me so many ideas of how and what to dip. Personally, I love dipping salty snacks like potato chips, pistachios, pretzels or saltine crackers to counteract with the sweetness of the chocolate. And topping the potato chips with peppermint adds anther fun texture and flavor that always impresses friends and guest! Plus the peppermint screams Christmas and looks adorable! Check below for the recipe and instructions how to make the chocolate covered potato chips.
I know I’ve talked a little bit about Creativebug in my DIY Wooden Centerpiece and DIY Paper Leaf Wreath posts, but I am just so in love with this brand and what they do! It’s this amazing resource of classes (over 500) that allow you to learn and garner new skills anytime you want! Maybe it’s because I’m a huge lover of learning (I always loved school), but I think that is such a wonderful resource. Already this year I have taken the Watercolor Class (twice), Calligraphy, Wooden Centerpieces, Paper Leaf Wreath and now this Dipped Pretzels and Cookies class. And the best part, I didn’t have to leave my couch! So many new skills in just a matter of months.
They actually have a fabulous holiday promotion you may be interested in. I love the idea of gifting crafting classes to a creative in my life. I can’t think of gifting or receiving anything better. The promotion is buy a year subscription and get a year free! So it’s a present for you and someone else!
1 Bag Potato Chips with Sea Salt
1 Bag Semi-Sweet Chocolate
Microwave your chocolate until melted and runny. It usually take two 15 second zaps, stirring in between each session. Once the chocolate is melted, grab a chip and dip into your chocolate. Tap the chip on the bowl a few times to let excess chocolate run off then sprinkle with crushed peppermint. Set on parchment paper until the chocolate has hardened and then enjoy!
