31 Days of Halloween: Pretzel Stick Tutorial

I love chocolate covered pretzels. I wanted to make some for Halloween. They are great for gifts, for party centerpieces and even just for a snack. Here's how to make them.
You'll Need:
1 bag of pretzel Rods
bag of chocolate
chocolate molds

First, put your chocolate in a double boiler. I just put a large glass bowl on top of a small pot of water. This works great for me. Once your chocolate is melted, place your pretzel rod in the chocolate and spin it. I have found that if your spin it and slowly pull it out it makes the chocolate a little more even.

Next, add your sprinkles.

Then place your rod straight up in a bowl. Add something in the bottom to make sure they stand up right. Then place them in the freezer to help harden the chocolate faster.

Once the rods have cooled they look like this. Now wrap them.

I used long, straight plastic bags then tied them with ribbon.

If you find a cute mold, you could make something like this as well.
Aren't they cute! Now it is your turn!
