Mint Pretzel Bark

This simple mint pretzel bark is sure to be a big hit at your house.  The sweet, mint, salty combination is excellent. 

I used Hershey’s mint chips for this recipe, but you could easily use Nestle’s dark chocolate & mint chips, or Andes Mints.  Both Nestle & Andes might give you a green-brown colored bark, which would be pretty!

In less than 10 minutes you can have this dessert sitting on your counter; therefore, it’s the perfect answer to taking to a party, potluck, or serving guests at your house with a nice cup of tea or hot chocolate and some popcorn.  Easy entertaining. 

Mint Pretzel Bark – Adapted from Nestle


  • 1 1/2 C Mint Chocolate Chips {I used Hershey’s}
  • ~1 C chopped pretzels


Line a cookie sheet with tinfoil.  Then, sprinkle the mint chocolate chips over the tinfoil. 

Place the tray into a warm oven (ideally around 325) and let the chocolate chips begin to melt.  You will know then they melt because they begin to get shiny.  When this happens, remove from the oven. 

Meanwhile, chop up/break apart your pretzels into small, bite-sized pieces. 

When the chocolate chips are ready, spread the chocolate out into a thin layer on the cookie sheet. 

Then sprinkle the crushed pretzels over the top. 

To get the pretzels to stick, hold the tray about 6-8 inches above the counter and drop the tray onto the counter.  Then, lightly press the pretzels in further with your hands. 

Cool on the countertop until completely set (about 2-3 hours on the counter). 

Break into pieces and place in an airtight container.  Store on the counter top.
