White Chocolate Christmas Pretzels

     Who doesn’t love a good chocolate covered pretzel? Sure, you can buy them in the store for a few dollars a bag…or you can make them homemade and get a lot of bang for your buck. I was able to make 13 dozen  pretzels for just $9. (And they taste better than the store-bought ones too).
     This recipe is rather simple, but I’m posting it anyway because it is fun, festive, and very kid-friendly. There are so many possible variations with the ingredients too! Don’t like pretzels? Why not try dipping Oreos, popcorn, or pecans. Don’t like white chocolate? (gasp!) Then give milk or dark chocolate a shot. Change up the colors and type of sprinkles according to the occasion you are celebrating. Whatever you do, have fun with it!
Four simple ingredients:
pretzel logs, vanilla wafers, food coloring, & sprinkles
Stirring the pretzels into the saucepan of melted chocolate;
To keep chocolate from hardening before the sprinkles are put on,
stir up the saucepan every couple of minutes.
Dipping the pretzel logs in the sprinkles;
I use inverted tweezers (you push them to open as they are automatically shut).
