Today as I strolled through the supermarket, casually tossing items into my shopping cart while attempting to remember the lyrics to the newest song of that artist whose name I can’t recall, I came upon a delightful display of pink confections.
Since another consumer-driven holiday filled with sweets, treats and goodies was just around the corner, the store was definitely working overtime at meeting its quota of mountains of hearts, flowers, plush bears and chocolate.
As I walked down the aisle past the army of stuffed animals, my eyes landed on a bag of plain M&M’s. I couldn’t look away from that chocolately goodness. Immediately, the M&M’s gave me the notion of putting a Valentine spin on an excessively made Christmas pretzel treat.
The pretzel treats were so easy to make. I simply put a number of pretzels on a cookie sheet and topped each one with a single Rolo candy. I then placed the pan in a pre-heated oven at 225 degrees for a mere 5 minutes.
And that’s it. A chocolatey pretzel Valentine treat.
So what about you? Have you ever been duly influenced at the grocery store by an unassuming bag of M&M’s?
