One of the favorite treats we make every holiday, especially the Fourth of July is chocolate covered pretzel rods. They are delicious, inexpensive, easy to make and hold up to the heat, honestly they do.
So we need some pretzel rods and melting chocolate...
Of course, in red, white and blue!!!!
And don't forget the sprinkles.
Make sure to buy lots of bags of pretzels, I bought three bags to find enough unbroken pretzels.
Next, melt the chocolate slowly in the microwave at 30 second intervals on low power. Once the chocolate is melted, dip about half of the pretzel rod into the chocolate.
Next, place the pretzel on a wax paper covered baking sheet and add sprinkles. Aren't they adorable.
All the pretzels finished. Let them sit for about an hour to ensure the chocolate has completely set.
Next, I package them in cute bags with ties. They sell pretzel bags but I didn't have any of those bags, so I used treat bags.
Your family will love them. They are super easy and the kids will love helping you make them.
