All you need is:
|My Camera was on the fritz. |
So I borrowed a pic from the web.
Chocolate chips (you can also use white chocolate)
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.
