    Chocolate-Covered Pretzels with Sprinkles



    Prep:  20 min      Cook:  2 min

    Yield:  24 pretzels

    Level:  Easy


    24 -ounce package milk chocolate chips

    24 large pretzel rods

    Assorted holiday sprinkles



    • Place the milk chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl Microwave one bowl on high for 1 minute. Remove and stir with a rubber spatula. (The chips should melt while you are stirring, but if they don't, you can continue to microwave for 15 more seconds, then stir again.)

    • Dip one pretzel rod into the milk chocolate; use a spoon or butter knife to spread the chocolate about halfway up the rod. Twist the rod to let the excess chocolate drip off. Hold the rod over a piece of parchment paper and shake sprinkles on all sides.

    • Place the pretzel on another piece of parchment paper to dry.

    • Repeat until you've coated all the pretzels and let dry completely, about 24 hours. (Cover any remaining chocolate with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator.)
