Valentine's Day Chocolate Covered Pretzel Sticks



These quick and easy Valentines Day Chocolate Dipped Pretzel Sticks look amazing and taste even better.

Valentine's Day is nearly here, and I'm getting started a bit earlier than I typically would. Working a 45+ hour a week job, keeping up with a busy 4 year old, finding the time to blog, and trying to keep my house from falling apart leaves me little time to spend in the kitchen. So when I actually get the chance to experiment and play around with a new recipe, I try to make it count.

So onto the recipe that brought you all here! Today I'm sharing a super simple, but incredibly adorable recipe for Chocolate Covered Pretzel Sticks, These pretzel sticks are not only pretty to look at, but they taste amazing. Bonus: this is the type of recipe that's requires few ingredients, and is the perfect way to introduce your kiddos to the kitchen. It involves no real heavy lifting or stove-work, so you can rest assured that your kids can't get into too much trouble.


Ingredients

Dipping Chocolate (of your choice, but strawberry or white chocolate will look best)
Pretzel Rods
Sprinkles
Wax Paper



Instructions

Break 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.

Serve with a smile!



These pretzel sticks are the perfect inexpensive gift for loved ones and friends. They can be packaged up and tied with a matching ribbon. They're incredibly simple to make, but they look and taste amazing, so whoever is on the receiving end of this tasty treat, will cherish the personalized touch.
