Chocolate Covered Pretzel Rods
There's nothing better than a chocolate covered pretzel! Easy to make and will be loved by everyone. Great snack for the kids.
Heat chopped semisweet chocolate bars (or chips) in the microwave stopping to stir after every 30-second increment until melted. Spoon the chocolate over 3/4 of each pretzel rod. Tap or scrape off excess chocolate, then roll pretzel in sprinkles, crushed cookies, toffee bits, chopped nuts or mini M&M's. Dry on a cooling rack or wax paper until set.
To make the ‘stripes’ over your pretzels: Melt 1 cup white chocolate chips in the microwave. Stir in several drops of food coloring. Spoon colored chocolate into the bottom corner of a heavy plastic freezer bag. Cut a small part of the tip off the corner of the bag and drizzle the chocolate over the pretzels. Chill in fridge or freezer for 10-20 minutes or until set.
