"Looking for something fun to make for Halloween, Christmas, Valentine's Day or Easter? Grab your holiday sprinkles, and have fun! These are a yummy treat for kids and adults alike! I made these for co-workers and family members during the holidays, and put some in gift baskets for Christmas. You can also use the pastel colored sprinkles for Easter to put in the kiddies Easter Baskets... You can make them for any of the holidays, by just using different holiday jimmies and candies... I wrapped each one in green and red saran wrap and tied with a coordinating ribbon for Christmas. They look pretty enough to put on top of Christmas presents or packages, use as party favors for kids birthday parties, or as a place setting using a name tag tied with a ribbon to each one, so the kids know where their seats are. I have dipped them in caramel and then chocolate and sprinkled with nuts and mini M&M's. I have also used chopped candy bars such as Butterfingers. You could even use the little cinnamon hot red candies for Valentine's Day! Or put those cute candy hearts with the little sayings down the front with some sprinkles. The sky is the limit. Use your imagination, and I am sure they will work fine for you too. Great to do as a fun day with the kiddies too!"

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Put the chocolate chips in the top of a double boiler.

Step 2

Put water in the bottom pan, and heat the water, to melt the chocolate chips in the top pan.

Step 3

When chips are melted, take off stove, and dip pretzel rods first in the chocolate to about half way down the rod, then dip the tip into the sprinkles, about 2" down the chocolate (I cover all but about 2 inches from the bottom of the pretzel, and do the same with the sprinkles) and lay on waxed paper.

Step 4

Let the chocolate harden a good half hour.

Step 5

Wrap individually in colored saran wrap for the holidays, to keep them fresh. Using thin ribbon, tie with a bow to match the saran wrap.


No special items needed.

I dipped mine in caramel and let them sit for about an hour, and then dipped in chocolate. I used all kinds of festive sprinkles to make them ready for a Christmas party this weekend. I wrapped them in colored Saran Wrap and tied on one end with red and green ribbons. Can't wait to pass them out to my friends!

My kids and I enjoyed making these for our annual Halloween party. I decided to dip the pretzel rods into melted caramel, then chocolate. The kids enjoyed rolling them in nuts, or decorating with Halloween themed sprinkles/candies. So festive, not to mention delicious. Everyone went home with one. Big hit!

Dipped in white chocolate then in little red candy hearts and sprinkles. My grandchildren were happy to get them for Valentine's Day along with their card from us!

These can be made so many ways and I made them for my daughter's baby shower and topped them with pink frosting and sprinkles and a few other varieties that you can see in the picture
