The most important ingredient is the chocolate it has to be meltable chocolate. I use this brand from Michael store.
Choclate Covered Pretzels
These are my absolute go to for taste and aesthetics . They are so lovely and delicious. Every time I make these for baby shower, birthday parties or just family dinner everyone rants and raves.
Put the chocolate into a ceramic mug with a handle, it will get hot.
Follow the directions on the packaging by microwaving in 30 second increments. DO NOT over microwave or the chocolate will become clumpy and unusable . Make sure to Stir in between each microwave session.
Once the chocolate is the consistency of icing, add food coloring using a toothpick. You don't want to start with too much food coloring because you could always add more. One time ruined an entire batch of chocolate by putting in too much pink and instead of baby pink like I wanted it was pepto bismol pink!
Stir in the food coloring for consistency.
I like to tip the mug over to the side and then stick the entire pretzel rod all the way to the bottom and swirl as you remove it out of the mug. Once the chocolate starts running low scoop it all to the side of the mug.
Layout all the pretzel rods to dry.
Now it's time for the drizzle. Microwave a different color chocolate or use food coloring to create a different color for contrast.
Get a plastic icng bag and place it over a plastic cup, then fill it with the melted chocolate.
Cut a small hole in the bottom of the bag and drizzle across the pretzel rods.
I then like to add a little bit of sprinkles on top. This has to be done while the chocolate is still wet otherwise it won't stick.
I have made these in pink and white for my daughters baby birthday, green and gold for my nephews dinosar themed shower, the possibilities are endless! This time I went with a butterscotch color and dark chocolate for Thanksgiving dinner!
