Chocolate Candy Covered Pretzel Rods
Pretzel and chocolate, what more can you ask for? Being that I still had some left over holiday candies, I wanted to use it up before they went bad. So what could I do with left over candy cane and snowflake candies you ask... well why not pair them with some chocolate covered pretzels.
This is the easiest thing in the world to make (or should I say... put together.) Thanks Maria....AKA CHEF MOMMY for the idea... here is the link to her food blog....
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
1 12-ounce package milk chocolate chips
24 large pretzel rods
Assorted sprinkles and candies
Place the milk chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl
Microwave on high for 1 minute.
Remove and stir with a rubber spatula. The should all be melted if not continue to microwave for 15 more seconds and stir after each 15 seconds.
Now dip one pretzel rod at a time into chocolate
Let the excess chocolate drip off.
Hold the rod over a piece of wax paper and shake sprinkles and candies all over.
Place the pretzel on another cookie sheet to dry.
Let chocolate set about 12 hours.
Make yourself and nice tall glass of hot chocolate and enjoy!
