A very pretty dessert. Warning any broken M&M will swirl brown choclate with the white and some of the candy coating melted.


Thank you for this recipe! I used white chocolate chips instead of coating. Also, I mixed the pretzels in the white chocolate first, then stirred in the colored candies to prevent the red and green candies from melting in the white and swirling it. I had no melting/swirling problems this way. After spreading on the baking sheet (9x13), I hand-inserted more red and green candies on top for color, and then sprinkled the whole pan with red and green sugar sprinkles. Turned out great, thank you!

Perhaps I should have known, but the recipe would have been more successful if the recipe required WHITE CHOCOLATE instead of CONFECTIONER'S COATING. Who knew!
