  • Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels or Bakers Chocolate, or Chocolate Bark
  • Various Candy Sprinkles or crushed candies

  • Chopped Nuts or Slivered Almond pieces

  • Spoon
  • Butter Knife or Silicone Brush

  • OTHER MATERIALS

  • Peppermint Pieces
  • STEPS set up for making festive pretzels

    1. Melt chocolate in microwave safe container. Since microwaves vary, times will vary. Heat until just melted. Chocolate should be warm not hot. Chocolate scorches very easily and will taste burnt if heated too long. Microwave 30 seconds, stir 15 secs, and repeat as needed.
    2. Dip pretzel into chocolate or brush chocolate evenly with silicone pastry brush.
    3. roll pretzel in sprinkles

    4. Sprinkle toppings on pretzel over bowl for a lighter coating or line a pan with parchment paper or foil and pour sprinkles onto it. Roll until pretzel is evenly coated.

    5. Let dry on waxed paper. Cool in refrigerator for 30 min to harden faster.

    TIPS AND SUGGESTIONS

  • We found it easier to use the silicone brush or the back of a wooden spoon to apply the chocolate.
  • Nuts are easiest to coat by rolling dipped pretzel into it. Pour nuts onto either parchment paper or foil.
  • If your child is heavy on the sprinkles...use a piece of foil to work on. Fold in half to form a crease and when your child is done sprinkling you can pour into a container to sprinkle the next pretzel.
  • These can be prepared ahead of time and refrigerated until use.
