Chocolaty Holiday Treat
Are you ready for a fun, easy, kid-friendly treat to make? Chocolate dipped pretzels are so festive and so easy. And chocolate and pretzels are a wonderful sweet/salty combination.
My kids jumped right in to help me make this festive treat. We had a lot of fun….although I will admit, there were a lot of colored sprinkles all over the kitchen…and the rest of the house… by the time we were done!
We used milk chocolate, chocolate chips. They are easy to melt and don’t require any special techniques.
We used a microwave for the melting. You do need to be a bit careful so you don’t burn the chocolate. I like to heat for 30 seconds at a time and then stir and heat again until the chocolate is completely melted.
Then you just dip your pretzels. Well, actually, we found spreading the chocolate on the pretzels worked better than an actual dipping.
Dipping was too uneven and yielded way too much chocolate on each pretzel!
Sprinkle on the sprinkles! Set the finished pretzels on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper. There was lots of finger licking going on here…luckily this treat was just for our family!
