Chocolate Dipped Pretzels

Strike the Harp and Join the Chorus.

Fa La La La La, La La La La.  

Every year I make Christmas treats and put them together for certain people in our life that we want to show appreciation, but we can't afford gifts for every person on our list. Putting together treats for these people shows them that we care about how important they our to us. This is one of the treats I am putting into our Christmas packages this year. These are easy, cheap, and festive! 

Things I Used: 
- Large Pretzel Rods 
- Milk Chocolate Disks 
- Mini White Chocolate Chips 
- Milk (just a little)
- Christmas Themed Sprinkles 
- Crushed Candy Canes 

What I Did: 
First I made a small double boiler on the stove. I put the pot onto medium-low heat and placed a handful of chocolate disks into the bowl. I began stirring the chocolate until it began to melt. I added a little bit of milk to make it thinner. Constantly stir to prevent burning until the chocolate is completely melted. Remove from heat immediately. Dip the ends of your pretzels rods into the chocolate and twist them until they are coated in chocolatey goodness. Sprinkle with the toppings of your choice. Place on foiled cookie sheet and leave until completely set. If you remove them too soon the chocolate will smudge off. Enjoy!
