Chocolate Covered Pretzel Sticks

What you'll need

  • 1 (12 oz.) bag chocolate chips
  • 24 pretzel sticks
  • sprinkles and nuts, (optional)
Helpful Tip:
Choose sprinkle colors to celebrate holidays, like red and white for Valentine's Day or orange and brown for Halloween.

Place in a colored cellophane bag with a sparkly twist-tie for a presentation that will rival those from boutique-type candy stores.

Lay the pretzels in a box lined with waxed paper. Have your child decorate the box's cover with stickers, drawings, or even photos to personalize your gift.

How to make it

  1. Pour the chocolate chips into a microwave-safe bowl and microwave at half power for one minute. Stir with a silicone spatula. Continue to microwave at intervals of 15-60 seconds until chocolate is completely melted. Stir until smooth.
  2. Dip half of the pretzel stick into the chocolate. (If it starts to get thick, warm in the microwave for 8-10 seconds.)
  3. Dip the coated end of the pretzel into sprinkles, nuts, tinted shredded coconut, or anything for extra color. Stand up in a glass or lay on a cookie sheet (prepared with cooking spray or lined with waxed paper) until set.
