This just may be the perfect kid friendly Christmas treat around. Not only is it easy but you can’t really mess it up!
You will want the following:
-Pretzels (we prefer the stick kind rather than the knotted version as it is easier for small hands to dip)
-Non stick surface to let the pretzels cool on (I used parchment paper) but you could also use a regular plate, cookie sheet, etc)
1) Simply melt your chocolate in a double boiler (if you don’t have one you can make one by simply stacking a metal bowl on top of a pot of boiling water) or in the microwave (be careful to check and stir your chocolate often as it is EASY to overcook it in the microwave).
2) Dip your pretzels into the chocolate mixture
3) Allow them to cool on your parchment paper. Optional: once they have cooled, re-dip them on the other end.
If you want to get fancy, you can decorate the still wet chocolate with sprinkles, candy bits (such as crushed candy canes) or shaved chocolate. OR let your children make their initials using the pretzel rods!
