Fancy Chocolate Covered Mini Pretzels

Here’s a cute twist on an old favorite. We’ve used mini pretzel sticks instead of pretzel logs to make the perfect size snacks for youngsters. A great treat for your Valentine’s Day party.
What You Need Mini Pretzel Sticks White Chocolate Candy Melts Milk or Dark Chocolate Candy Melts Colored Sugars or Candy Coatings Wax Paper Coffee Mugs to hold melted chocolate Paper Cupcake liners to hold the sugars and candies What You Do
Fill a coffee mug ½ full of white candy melts. Melt in microwave at 30-second intervals, stirring after each time, until melted. You will do a “double dip” process—meaning to take one pretzel stick, dip it into the chocolate about ¾ of the way up the stick, and then lay it on a piece of wax paper to dry. Do a bunch of first round dippers before moving on to the second dipping for easier handling. Once the chocolate has dried, dip each pretzel stick lightly into the chocolate for a second coating and then immediately into one of the colored sugars or candy sprinkles**. This must be done with some quickness because the second coating of chocolate will dry rather fast. Again, lay the sticks on the wax paper to dry completely. **For ease in containing the colored sugars and candies, use cupcake liner papers to hold them. Repeat using Milk or Dark Chocolate. These pretzel sticks can be stored in a sealed container for several days. No need to refrigerate. Freezing is not recommended.
