Valentine Pretzels a.k.a. Heartzels

Are you surviving the cold/flu season?

The hubby and I have been passing viruses back and forth for about a month … we share everything!  The dog even got sick :(  I’m sure that this is the end of it :)

I finally ventured out of the house to do some shopping at Target … Kleenex, toilet paper, laundry soap, very exciting stuff ;)  However, I was very excited when I found these … Heartzels

Aren’t they cute?  This is the first time that I have ever seen Heartzels!

Chips were on my shopping list … but the pretzels were the highlight of my shopping trip!

This is what I made …

Valentine pretzels - Heartzels

Here is the best part … what is better than a Rolo on a pretzel?  Answer … 3 Rolos on a pretzel!!!  Yes … I said 3 Rolos ;)  Just hang in there for a moment and I will explain …

This is what you will need …

Heart pretzels

  • Heartzels
  • Mini twist pretzels
  • Mini Rolos
  • Red sanding sugar

In each bag of Heartzels (.7 oz.) were only about 9 whole heart shaped pretzels and some broken ones … so I used mini twist pretzels on the bottom of these little treats and Heartzels on the top.

Directions …

  • Heat oven to 325°F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment.
  • Lay mini twist pretzels on parchment and 3 mini Rolos on each pretzel … can you see the ♥ forming?
  • Bake for 5 minutes.
  • Remove from oven, top each with a Heartzel and gently press to slightly smash the Rolos, creating a little sandwich, sprinkle with red sugar immediately … chill for a few minutes or let sit at room temperature until chocolate hardens.
  • Tap off all excess red sugar … don’t forget to save the extra sugar for another project!

Update 1-25-13 … I found an alternative to Heartzels today.  These are made by Herr’s … chocolate covered pretzels!  I hope these are easier to find … Target was my source …
