Chocolate Covered Pretzels
It's almost Halloween!! Our oldest son is asking us every day how many more days until Halloween. I think he's waiting for the candy windfall that's bound to happen.......which reminds me.....I have completely forgotten to buy any candy for our house yet.......ack!! I better get on that before the only thing that's left is Tootsie Rolls and Smarties......the two candies that I really really don't like!
Since we're not allowed to bring in any homemade treats to our son's Kindergarten class (don't even get me started), I'm making up for it by bringing a ton of things to my younger son's preschool class. These white chocolate covered pretzels are so easy to throw together.......you can really use any type of sprinkles on them........they're even great covered in mini M&Ms (I wish I had Halloween colored ones, but I didn't). I found cute little sugar pumpkins at my local baking supply store.....all of the other sprinkles were from Target. Michaels carries the cute little pretzel rod bags, so that you treats can be neatly bagged up. I love these treats.....a perfect combination of sweet and salty!!
To make these guys you'll need:
white candy melts or white chocolate
sprinkles (any kind will work)
additional colors of candy melts (if you want to drizzle some over the top of the sprinkles)
Melt the white candy melts in a microwave safe bowl. Once they have melted, transfer to a tall narrow glass (careful when pouring!). Dip a pretzel rod as far as you can into the melted candy melts and shake off the excess. Lay down on the wax paper and add on whatever sprinkles or decorations you want to use. If you're putting on mini M&Ms you may want to wait a second before adding them on.....since they're so much heavier than the sprinkles they have a tendency to slide off the sides.....waiting a minute will allow the surface to get a little tackier so that they can stick better. If you want to drizzle an additional color over the top of these, melt the other color and then place in a ziploc bag. Snip off a little bit off of the corner of the bag, and drizzle.
Once completely dry, place into bags and tie with ribbon or string......Enjoy!
