Chocolate Peppermint PretzelsThe holiday season is officially over!  But our holiday treat making is not.  Until now.  One of the last quick nibbles we whipped up was for one of 2008’s last holiday parties.  We’re a bit late in sharing it, but better late than never.  And these are so good, you’ll want to eat them anytime.  Hopefully the New Year has been as good to you so far as it has been to us!
