Cookies & Cream Christmas Pretzel Snaps

Looking for a fun Christmas Food craft to make with the kids? This one is it. With only 3 ingredients, it’s fun and easy to create a delicious treat everyone will love.


If you have been on our blog before, you know we have many pretzel snap recipes for a lot of occasions. I realized we didn’t have one for Christmas. So, my son and I ran to the store to pick up more pretzel snaps and his favorite Hershey Hugs, “Cookies and Cream.” Of course you can use any flavor you want. We got the sprinkles at Michaels. Or, you can find them this time of year in Target, Walmart and even some grocery stores.


These look so festive on a holiday dessert table. Kids and adults love them. The sweet and salty is a great combo. Make some extra batches to give as gifts. Looks so colorful in a glass mason jar.  Have fun with the kiddos and Grandkids. Merry Christmas and Happy, Safe Holidays to you all!!
