I love easy stuff. Easy Mac, easy listening, easy street. So when I want chocolate covered pretzels, I want them to be easy. And sprinkle-y.
I usually make chocolate covered pretzels around the holidays for what my Mom called our “edible Christmas cards”. We would always just bake a crapton of cookies and deliver them to our family and friends. But who says you can’t have chocolate covered pretzels all year long? No one. And if someone does say that, I will ignore them while grabbing a few handfuls of pretzel sticks. So there.
Let’s get to it! The joy of these babies is that they are no bake. The not-so-joyful part? They are time consuming. Easy, but time consuming. Set your workstation up in front of the TV, flip on a Real Housewives marathon, and get to dippin’.
Here’s what you need:
Pretzel sticks, white almond bark, and some sprinkles. Baby foot is optional, but adds a touch of cute.
Chop up your almond bark (this is half of a package). I just stab the snot out of it with a knife. Careful! Microwave it for 2 minutes at a time until you can stir it into a velvety melty bowl of love.
Now dip, twirl, and shake until the cows come home. Dip the pretzel stick, swirl it in a circle in your fingers, and then shake a little bit of the excess almond bark off. It wont stick really well if it’s blazing hot, so stir your melted bark for a few minutes. Make sure it’s fully melted and there’s no lumps.
Hold your dipped stick over a bowl and sprinkle. Pretzel-fetti! Lay them on foil to dry.
Party time, dudes. Those are easily the cutest pretzels you’ll ever eat. You can mix it up and use different shapes of pretzels, different colors of sprinkles, and so on. These would look pretty cute as “straws” in an ice cream cone!
There you have it. I am not responsible for mass consumption resulting in tummy aches. Deeeelish!
