There is something about having a kiddo that makes you love all the “little” holidays. I know a lot of people LOVE Valentine’s Day and I do like an excuse to be pampered and go out to a nice dinner. But, having a little babe makes me want to celebrate all the occasions! Since we can’t really make a three-course dinner like last year with a toddler running loose, I switched up my Valentine’s Day recipe for you all.
This recipe for yogurt covered pretzels is super easy and perfect to make with your kids of any age! Of course, we used Snowville Creamery yogurt because they are our favorite “adult” yogurt. You can find it at your local Whole Foods Market in the Midwest! All you have to do is grab a wide mouth bowl and throw in three parts powdered sugar and one part yogurt.
This recipe only has three major ingredients (powdered sugar, yogurt, pretzels) and a fourth if you use food coloring! We wanted to make some pink yogurt covered pretzels so I dropped in like two drops of red food coloring. Think back to your elementary years and work those primary color wheels to make purple or green or orange! Honestly, this is where your child could come in handy helping figure out which colors matched together make certain colors.
Then, all you have to do is dump in the pretzels and fully coat them. I left them in there for a minute or two just to get a nice layer on the pretzels. You could just make one big batch of white and then divvy it up into small bowls to make colored yogurt pretzels.
Then, you lay them on a cooling rack on top of a paper top lined baking sheet. Make sure you set this up BEFORE you start dipping your pretzels so you don’t create a mess. Then, throw sprinkles on them to make them cute for Valentine’s Day! After you’re finished with this step, you’ll need to put them in the freezer for at least 3 hours but you can do it overnight too.
There you have it! No cook, easy made yogurt covered pretzels made extra cute for Valentine’s Day. They will be a little sticky just because they don’t have any wonky ingredients in them. You can definitely toss them in a cute little bag and give them as gifts to your friends, neighbors, co-workers, etc. Noone is going to be made about that.
