Chocolate Dipped Pretzel Rods

I thought I would change things up a bit this week with the holidays right around the corner and share a yummy snack idea. I served these pretzels at a baby shower but they could also be a great favor or holiday gift for friends and family.
The baby shower was pink and brown so I started out by finding pink, white, and brown chocolate. You could use white chocolate with food coloring for your lighter colors. Most craft stores carry something like this in many colors.

Next you will need Pretzel rods like these.

Start by melting your chocolate either in a double boiler or slowly in the microwave stirring every 30sec or so.

Line a cookie sheet with wax paper. I laid out my whole pretzel rods (there are always some broken ones- great for snacking later) on one tray and had another ready for my dipped ones.

Pour melted chocolate into a dish and dip each pretzel. Shake lightly to remove excess chocolate and place on the wax paper to cool.
I poured my melted chocolate into a tall tumbler instead of a bowl. This allowed me to use less chocolate by having it be deeper to dip into. 

Repeat in each desired type of chocolate.

Pour remaining chocolate into a ziplock bag. Trim a small hole in the corner and drizzle across pretzels.

Repeat with any additional colors. This would be fun for Christmas drizzled in red and green.

The yummy cute finished product.

They were a big hit and so easy to coordinate with your party colors.
To use as a favor just place in cello bags and tie with a coordinating ribbon.

Hope you enjoyed this post. I will have more soon on the dipped marshmallows and layered cookie mixes in a jar.
