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.

  1. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler.

  3. Lay on a cookie sheet covered in wax paper.

  6. Freeze until hard.

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