The girls and I did some holiday “baking” this afternoon. These chocolate covered pretzels were so much fun to make! We made several bags of them for neighbors, friends, and family. To make your own, you will need:
Gifts Kids Can Make — Chocolate Covered Pretzels
December 15, 2009 by
One 12oz. bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 Tbsp. shortening
Melt shortening and some of the chocolate chips in a double broiler. Stirring occasionally.
When the chips start to melt, add more, and continue to stir, until the entire package is melted.
Spoon the melted chocolate over each pretzel rod, and place on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper.
Both of the girls really got into the sprinkle-fest! Place the baking sheet in the fridge until the chocolate has completely hardened. Package them up! We used pretzel bags (found at A.C. Moore), and could fit 3 pretzels to a bag. (See first photo.)
So much fun!
