    TIPS AND SUGGESTIONS

  • We like the Wilton White Candy Melts 12 Oz. which come in a variety of flavors and colors. We bought the Vanilla Colorburst Brights which are white and has little colored flakes in them. You can find these at large grocery stores or craft stores that offer supplies for lollipop and chocolate molds.
  • Baker's Dipping Chocolate, Milk Chocolate, 7-Ounce microwaveable Tubs (Pack of 8) can be found in single tubs at grocery stores. Not all have the white chocolate.
  • We also like Snyder's of Hanover Butter Snap Pretzels, 9-Ounce Packages (Pack of 12) which can be found in most grocery stores.
  • To harden quicker, place in refrigerator for 20 minutes or until set.

    We used Rolos, however if you prefer chocolates without caramel use Bakers Dipping Chocolate (Real Dark Semi-Sweet Chocolate) which comes in a round shape. See below. A perfect size on top of a butter snap pretzel.
