Chocolate Dipped Pretzel Rods

Will Bake for Food is this weekend and I’m in bake-sale mode!  So far I’ve made the Pumpkin Spice Whoopie Pies and now Chocolate dipped Pretzel rods!These pretzel rods were probably one of the easiest things I’ve ever made.  Melt chocolate, dip, and decorate! So simple!

White Chocolate Peppermint Pretzel Rods

1 bag store bought pretzel rods
1 bag Nestle white chocolate morsels
1 box candy canes, crushed
Parchment paper

  1. Melt chocolate in a heat-safe tall cup. (Microwave on 70% in 20 second increments, stirring, until 80% of chips are melted.  Stir until completely melted)
  2. Dip pretzel rod into melted chocolate, covering 2/3.  Shake off excess chocolate.
  3. Before setting it down, sprinkle crushed peppermints on all sides of the melted chocolate.
  4. Set on parchment paper to harden.

Milk Chocolate Pretzel Rods

1 bag store bought pretzel rods
1 bag Nestle milk chocolate morsels
white chocolate & nonpareils for garnish
parchment paper

  1. Melt chocolate in a heat-safe tall cup. (Microwave on 70% in 20 second increments, stirring, until 80% of chips are melted.  Stir until completely melted)
  2. Dip pretzel rod into melted chocolate, covering 2/3.  Shake off excess chocolate.
  3. Before setting it down, sprinkle nonpareils on all sides of the melted chocolate.
  4. Set on parchment paper to harden.
  5. For white chocolate drizzle, after dipping, set pretzel stick down on parchment paper and let harden for 5 minutes.  Put a couple spoon fulls of melted white chocolate into a ziploc bag and cut the corner.  In a back and forth pattern, pipe the white chocolate onto the milk chocolate.
  6. The milk chocolate hardens slower, so if you need to packages these up right away, put them in the freezer for 10 minutes and they will harden!
