Chocolate Covered Pretzel Rods….

13 Dec

Finally the tutorial that I promised last week:  How to make my famous Chocolate Covered Pretzel Rods.  2 weeks ago I made 160 of these, they aren’t very difficult.  It took a while but I have plenty to use for gifts and Christmas parties.

Christmas Pretzel Rods

  • Milk Chocolate
  • Red and Green Melts
  • Sprinkles and Candy for Toppings
  1. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler.
  2. Coat the pretzel with chocolate leaving a small part exposed to use as a handle.
  3. Lay on a cookie sheet covered in wax paper.
  4. Melt red & green chips in a squeeze bottle per the directions on the bag and pour over pretzels.
  5. Decorate with sprinkles.
  6. Freeze until hard.
  7. Store in closed containers, in a cold area (garage, freezer etc.) until ready to share.
  8. Enjoy!

These can be adapted for any holiday but for some reason I only make them at Christmas.

Check back tomorrow for a perfect winter soup recipe!
