What a great idea! Maybe if you use the traditional pretzel shape and break off the extra to create a heart you can add marshmallows and other goodies into the chocolate mix as well to make a heart stuffed treat. Then once it dries and sets you can dip it in some dark or milk chocolate, stick a skewer in it and wrap it in saran (once it cools) to make a pretzel heart bouquet for that pretzel lover on your list. Actually, you can probably do the same for any holiday...just use a different shape!

I love pretzel and chocolate combos! Definitely trying out these pretzel bites for Valentine's Day!

I love chocolate covered pretzels, but my least favorite part is having that extra bit of uncovered pretzel I never want to finish. These are the perfect solution, and they were tasty!

Not all that peppermint-y, but still tasty! They kind of clumped together a bit more than I think I would have liked, but that was probably user error.

This is such a cute recipe! I bet I could make this recipe with my little cousins for Valentine's Day.

I'm a sucker for sweet & salty combo treats. They're so addicting! This one was no different. I'm glad they were located so far away from where I was sitting or else I might've eaten way more than would be good for me.

You can't go wrong with chocolate-covered pretzels. These gave me the sweet fix I was looking for.

These pretzel candies were delicious! Such a sweet treat )

I'm not a huge fan of peppermint, but I liked the sweet and salty mixture of chocolate and pretzels. These would be a great treat to bring to a holiday party.

I love the combination of chocolate and pretzels. I thought white chocolate worked well with the peppermint.

Good idea in concept, but I think the large chunks of pretzel and large chunks of peppermint candy made these difficult to eat. Maybe try smaller pretzel sticks and really crush up that peppermint candy!

Salty and sweet is a great combination for a snack or dessert, so the mint and pretzels are a natural pairing. Not being a fan of white chocolate, however, I would make this recipe using dark or milk chocolate (or maybe both!). I think it would be five-star for me at that point.

Either be sure to smash the peppermints into small pieces or use the old fashioned peppermints (you know the chalky kind like King Leo's) because a huge chunk of Starlite Mint will hurt to bite into. Otherwise the flavor is delicious, great recipe for a crowd.

This pretzel candy was pretty good! I'm not a huge fan of the pretzel/peppermint combo, but I loved that it was both sweet and salty.

This candy was very tasty and reminded me of Christmas treats of my childhood! I especially liked the peppermint in it.

I'm asking for a slow cooker for Christmas just so I can make this deliciousness. I love me some mint and crunch and sweet and this had it all! :)
