Who doesn’t love chocolate covered pretzels, sweet and salt for every bite?! For this recipe, finding pretzel rods was a bit of a challenge and I came across it only by accident. I was window shopping at my local cake supply store and there they were, all in one piece so I purchased some. Also for those of you who don’t have a local cake shop around the corner, try Smart & Final, however the bag has a lot of broken pieces.
I kept this recipe simple and I used a five different kinds of sprinkles and some of the sprinkles tasted like peppermint and gingerbread men which I found really neat! Do all sprinkles have a unique taste?
I don’t know what I was thinking, but I accidently burned the candy melts! Who does that?! Well, that would be me ladies and gentlemen. I microwaved the chocolate for three minutes and was a big mistake, normally you only warm it for about a minute (if it is a small batch of candy melts). Well, I discovered that the candy melts were ready after 30 seconds, it’s just I didn’t mix it thoroughly for the chocolates to melt.
These pretzels tasted amazing, I hope you enjoy them too!
