Dipping Chocolate (of your choice, but strawberry or white chocolate will look best)
InstructionsBreak off a few chunks of chocolate and place in a bowl, the narrower, the better. Heat chocolate according to package instructions. Once your chocolate is done heating, check to make sure it's not too runny. If it's runny, allow it to cool down and stiffen up a bit.
Once your chocolate has reached the constancy you would like, dip and twirl one end of your pretzel stick into the bowl. Apply an even amount of chocolate on the pretzel rod. Shake pretzel rod to remove any excess chocolate.
Holding your pretzel rod over and empty bowl, carefully shake the sprinkles over the chocolate covered pretzel. The empty bowl underneath will catch any excess sprinkles, which can then be used again. Repeat this process as many times as necessary to ensure your pretzel is fully covered.
Place pretzel on wax paper and allow to stiffen for at least 15 minutes.
