Christmas is almost here and the planning has already begun
for what to give as hostess gifts and gifts to the kids in the family.
I usually give my nieces and nephews gift cards but really like to include
a little something extra along with their gift.
These chocolate covered pretzels are a great gift idea for kids
AND they make a great hostess gift to give when attending parties and dinners
throughout the season.
All you need to make these easy treats are pretzel rods, melted chocolate and colorful sprinkles.
Melt the chocolate according to the package directions.
Gently dip one end of the pretzel rods into the melted chocolate.
Let cool slightly before adding the sprinkles.
You can also add melted white chocolate as a design once the melted chocolate has hardened completely.
Here are some of my favorites to use when making Chocolate Covered Pretzels as gifts:
I love using Utz Pretzels. Their pretzels hold up great when dipping.
I love using Wilton Candy Melts. Almond Bark works well also.
Here are some cute Christmas baggies to wrap your pretzels.
I know your family and friends will enjoy these delicious treats this Christmas!
