white vanilla melting wafers
chocolate melting wafers
Place each of the melting wafers in separate bowls or jars. Melt the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. Heat for 30 seconds at a time, stirring between each time.
1 cup white vanilla melting wafers,
1 cup chocolate melting wafers
Heat at 30 second intervals until completely melted
Spread or dip chocolate on ⅔ of each pretzel rod. Wipe off excess chocolate.
24 pretzel rods
Add sprinkles and place on parchment paper to cool and harden
If your microwave is very powerful, do 15-20 second intervals instead
Chocolate may also be heated over a double boiler with simmering water in the lower pot.
Do not add any additional ingredients to the melting wafers
If working by self, heat just one type of chocolate at a time
If the chocolate begins to become difficult to work with, pop it back into the microwave for 10-15 seconds and give it a good stir
When adding sprinkles, work over a baking sheet. It helps collect all those wayward sprinkles!
Once the chocolate has cooled and hardened, store in an airtight container in a single layer. Place waxed paper or parchment paper between each layer.
