I’m all about staying in this winter in my nice, cozy condo. Before we even start on my hermit-like winter ways, you know you’ll take any excuse you can get yourself to stay in out of the cold.Of course, snuggly weekend days in call for hot cocoa, DIY projects and all things girly. Can these Buttercream Dipped Pretzels get any cuter?

Buttercream is a delicious new discovery of mine, and is surprisingly super easy to make. It calls for pretty much all my guilty pleasures, including butter, icing sugar and whipping cream – yum!! The trick to getting these pretzels to look so perfect is to create a white and pink icing, then scrape the pink icing into a Ziploc bag with a tiny hole cut out at the bottom for drizzling. You’ll want to keep reheating your buttercream icing every once in a while for the perfect consistency in order to completely coat each pretzel.

Instructions
  1. Make buttercream by mixing semi-melted butter, vanilla and icing sugar together. Mix sugar in one cup at a time, whisking to prevent lumps. Finish by adding the whipping cream and mixing with a spatula.
  2. Separate buttercream into two bowls, adding about 2-3 drops of red food colouring to one of the icing mixtures. Set pink icing in bowl aside.
  3. Microwave white icing in a glass bowl for about 30 seconds until icing is hot and runny in consistency.
  4. Line a baking sheet with wax paper, and get pretzels ready. Dip each pretzel in white buttercream, coating entirely, and lifting out gently with a fork. You may need to use your pinky finger or use a toothpick to remove icing from holes of pretzel.
  5. Place each on the baking sheet and when you've made enough to fill the sheet, place in the fridge for about 10 minutes to let the icing harden.
  6. In glass bowl, microwave pink icing for 20 seconds when the baking sheet full of pretzels is ready to come out of the fridge.
  7. Scrape pink icing into a plastic bag and cut a small hole in the bottom of it. Drizzle pink icing overtop of pretzels, then sprinkle with toffee bits.
  8. Let cool in fridge for another 5 minutes then enjoy right away!
