Easy Holiday Treat YUMMY!

Ok, who doesn't like chocolate?!!! (rhetorical question)
I LOVE chocolate!!!  And I love mixing it with other goodies to make those goodies even better!!!!  =)
So, here is a YUMMY, EASY treat that your kiddos can do!!  My daughter is three years old and had no trouble whatsoever making these.  I did the microwaving, she did the rest!
Chocolate Covered Pretzels:
All you need is :

  • a bag of pretzels (we used the big stick pretzels.  Wal-Mart brand just $1.50)
  • Microwavable Chocolate =)  The baking isle is full of it!!!!   I used the big blocks of it by Plymouth Pantry (just $2.50)
  • Wax Paper
  • Mixing bowl and spoon
  • Sprinkles (optional, but makes the pretzels look more festive)

****Of course, if you are letting your kiddos help, PLEASE be careful when working with the hot chocolate and the mixing bowl will be hot when you get it out of the microwave.****

Break chocolate into small squares and microwave....use the instructions on the package...

  • Use a spoon to help coat chocolate on the pretzel sticks.
*You can put as much or as little on the pretzels as you want, but come on, its CHOCOLATE so the more the better!!! =)
This was Kensey's favorite part.... well, aside from actually EATING the chocolate covered pretzel....

  • Place the chocolate covered pretzels on wax paper to let them cool and harden
  • Sprinkle fun little sprinkles on your pretzels =)

  • Let stand for 15 to 20 minutes

  • ENJOY!!!
