Chocolate dipped pretzels.  Also put a hershey’s kiss on top of a pretzel twist and bake them just until the chocolate gets soft, but not melted.  Then smash an m&m on top.  So simple and sooo yummy.

@crebre80: Trying to remember where I got the gingerbread cookies from.  I think it was the Better Homes and Gardens cookbook?  I actually have 2 copies of it because I thought they lost it in the move but we found the old one.  They have some different receipes in them though so I don’t want to get rid of either!

Boo about the car breaking down!  I hope it gets fixed soon!

I was going to suggest chocolate covered pretzels too!  I just dipped a 1 pound bag of pretzels earlier tonight!  It can be really fun to do with kids because you can use sprinkles before the chocolate gets hard to decorate them.  What I prefer to do though is use a pastry bag (or ziplock bags – those work well too) for decorating.  First, I dip the pretzels in dark chocolate.  Then, I melt colored white cholocate (blue, red, green, white, etc) directly in the pastry bag (just reduce the power on the microwave to 50-60% and check every 20 seconds until it melts).  Finally, cut a really tiny whole at the corner of the bag and you can then drizzle the colored choclate over the dark chocolate pretzels.  Just make sure the dark chocolate has set before you do it.  Oh, and wax paper works wonders.

Melt Almonde Bark and dip pretzels in that. YUM!

The cookies with the chocolate star in the middle. Those are my favorite. Sugar cookies with frosting are always good too.
