Chocolate Covered Pretzels

My nephew was over the other day so we decided to make chocolate covered pretzels.  This is how we did it...

All you need is:
Pretzel Rods
My Camera was on the fritz.
So I borrowed a pic from the web.
Chocolate chips (you can also use white chocolate)
Sprinkles (optional)
Wax paper/cooling rack

Empty the bag of chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl.  Then microwave on high for 1 minute. Remove and stir with a spatula (some of the chips will melt when you are stirring, if they don't, microwave for 15 more seconds, then stir again.)  Because the chocolate hardens after awhile, I found it easier to work with half a bag of chocolate at a time.

Dip one pretzel rod into the melted chocolate and use a spoon or butter knife to spread the chocolate.  Hold the rod over a piece of wax paper/plate and shake sprinkles on all sides.  Place the pretzel on another piece of wax paper or a cooling rack to dry.  Repeat until you've coated all the pretzels and let dry completely (we ate them after a few hours in the fridge, well the kids ate their's instantly). 

If working with children, its easiest to pour them their own bowl of chocolate and give them a few pretzels and a spoon. 

Warning:  This particular recipe is very messy, especially with 2 toddlers.  So if you do not like big mess projects, this is not the recipe for you.
