How to Make Caramel Chocolate Covered Pretzel Sticks

You know how right after Thanksgiving you feel like you are ready to kick of the Christmas season? After Thanksgiving dinner, we always watch Christmas Vacation, which feels like a real transition to the second part of the holiday season. That’s kind of how I feel about the Super Bowl. Now that the game is behind us, I’m ready to officially shift in to Valentine’s Day. And I expect everyone to transition with me, since for dessert at our Super Bowl party everyone had these Valentine’s Day caramel chocolate covered pretzels.

Admittedly, I’ve been avoiding the whole chocolate covered pretzel thing for quite literally no reason. I think because I couldn’t wrap my head around the combination of sprinkles that would be pretty? So ridiculous to not make them for such an easy problem to solve – and it really was easy to solve! I just went to Michael’s, picked one set of sprinkles I loved and then used those to pick 4 more variations that I thought all looked cute together.

Peanut Butter Cup Popcorn & 4 Food Shows to Watch on Netflix

Get your remotes and popcorn ready, have I got a list for you! If you want some foodie things to watch on Netflix, I’m your girl and this is your post. Plus, I’m sharing my recipe for peanut butter cup popcorn, which you’re gonna want for your next #netflixandchill sesh. Trust me.

Okay, friends, let’s get into the list, while we collectively drool over this peanut butter cup popcorn. I mean….can you even???

 

To make this popcorn, you’ll pop up some in your microwave or follow the directions from my stove top popcorn recipe. Next, you lay it out on a sheet, drizzle with peanutbutter magic shell and sprinkle peanut butter cups on top. Pop it in the fridge until the chocolate hardens and then serve in small bowls! Easy!

Marinated Feta & Olives for a Wine & Cheese Night Appetizer

I must tell you – I am not a sommelier. I poked around, found some pairings I thought we would enjoy and here we are. So, if you’re going to argue with me that feta and red wine don’t mix, I hear you. But also, I poked around the Internet a bit and did find that a light pinot noir will pair well with feta. And so here we are!

I personally love how the feta and olives pair with a low key pinot noir, but feta also pairs well with sauvignon blanc and rose wine. You’ll want something dry and light as the olives give a salty punch compared to feta on its own.

I love to DIY marinated feta and olives, or really any marinated cheese. It always feels pretty impressive even though, I swear, it’s so. easy.
