As many of you already know, my baby girl turned ONE last week! So we had a small party for her a couple of weekends ago, and invited some family and friends over for a little celebration!
I was trying to think of some party favors to give away as people left, and I kept coming back to the same thing!
The best part about making these is that they are SO SIMPLE. But they are also easily customizable! Is customizable a word?? Let’s just assume it is… lol. You can decorate the pretzels to match anything you like! Use food coloring to change the color of the chocolate, use dark chocolate or white, or you can put colored sprinkles or cookie crumbs on them...the sky is the limit!! And they taste delicious no matter how you decorate them:)
What you need:
-1 bag of pretzel rods (1 bag generally has 30 rods in it. You may want extra, in case some are broken though.)
-2 (12 oz.) bags of white, or milk chocolate morsels
-Some wax paper
-Any sprinkles, or edible decorations you want to use!
Step 1- Put your chocolate pieces in a double boiler. Or make one, by finding a metal mixing bowl that fits over a saucepan (you can see the one I made in the picture below.) Just make sure the bottom of the bowl is well above the water. Fill the saucepan below about 2/3rds of the way full of water, and heat it up. Do NOT allow to boil. You can scorch the chocolate and dry it out that way.
Step 2- After you see your chocolate bits start to get a “glossy” look, you can start to mix the chocolate gently. Eventually it will melt evenly. Be sure to keep checking that the water under your bowl is not getting too hot. Melting the chocolate slowly is the way to go. Resist trying to get it to melt too quickly!
Step 3- Dip your pretzels in the chocolate. If your bowl isn’t deep enough you can use a spoon to ladle chocolate over the pretzel rods. Lay the pretzels on wax paper to harden.
Step 4- Before the chocolate hardens, sprinkle on any edible decorations. I used yellow sprinkles since my daughters party had a yellow theme!
Step 5- Wrap, and ENJOY!!
