Preztels for St. Patrick's Day

Chocolate covered pretzels are seriously the easiest and yet most crowd pleasing dessert to make.  You don't actually need instructions for this, trust me.  But I still wanted to show off the ones I made for an early St. Patrick's Day celebration at John's firehouse because they turned out adorable.

Ingredients and Tools

1 Bag Pretzel Rods
1 Bag White Chocolate Chips
Vegetable Oil (small amount, optional)
Tall Microwave Safe Cup (melt the chocolate using a double broiler method and a tall pot if that's your thing, but my way is easier)
Wax Paper and Baking Pans/Trays


1. Prep your wax paper first thing.  I put mine in baking pans because they stack easily in the fridge.
2. Melt the chocolate.  I do this in small increments in the microwave, about 1 cup of white chocolate chips with a teaspoon of vegetable oil for 30 seconds, stir, 15 to 30 seconds more until it's just melting as you stir - don't overheat it.  I have a tall cup that's easy to use, it allows me to get the chocolate pretty far up the pretzel rod, which is ideal.  The vegetable oil makes the chocolate smoother and shinier, all around easier to work with and you just need a tiny bit.  It's optional though (shortening, coconut oil, all the same effect.)
3. Stir the pretzel rod in the melted chocolate so it's evenly coated all the way around, allowing the excess to drip off back into the cup for a few seconds.  Lay it on the wax paper.  You can do all the pretzels in a row that fit onto a single one of your trays.
4. Add sprinkles as soon as you finish a single tray, because the chocolate starts to set quickly.
5. Refrigerate until completely set and enjoy!

See?  Easy.  And everyone loved chocolate covered pretzels.  And you have plenty of time to grab your supplies and make them before the 17th.  Happy St. Patrick's Day!
