The last few years I have made chocolate dipped pretzel rods to give as gifts. Recently, when my girls saw me making a batch, they wanted to help. If you’ve ever had three toddlers helping you in the kitchen, you realize it’s not really that helpful. But kids benefit so much from these kinds of hands-on experiences, so we gave it a try. Here are our surprisingly successful results.
Supplies you will need:
- Milk Chocolate candy melts or chocolate chips
- Pretzel rods
- Mug for dipping
- Drying rack or wax paper
- Tray for sprinkles
I poured some festive sprinkles in a tray and “A” dipped her pretzel rod in the sprinkles while the chocolate was still melted.
B dips too.
We put them to dry on our drying rack. As the chocolate dries it gets harder and keeps all those yummy sprinkles on. There are lots of variations you can try with these pretzels. You can use white chocolate with crushed candy canes for peppermint bark pretzels or roll in M and M’s or chopped nuts. The options are endless. This is a fun snack for kids and a great gift for everyone on your list.
