Tips for melting candy melts:

Melt the candy melts in the microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring in between. It is important to melt these in intervals because you do not want to burn the candy melts. 

Also, stir each time you check it because often it will not look melted until you stir it.

Tips for chocolate covered pretzel rods:

  • I used a wire rack to allow the chocolate to drip off but you can also use parchment or wax paper on a baking sheet. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and allow the chocolate dipped pretzels to cool on that sheet.
  • When you are crushing the candy, anything will do. You can also just put in a ziplock bag and use a rolling pin to crush them. Easy!

Variation Ideas:

  • Peeps pretzel rods– These are so fun with Peeps.
  • Try milk chocolate instead of white chocolate. It is also so fun and pretty to use both. The drizzle looks gorgeous with both types of chocolate. 
  • Try other types of candy. Topping these with colorful sprinkles would be adorable too.
  • Switch the colors to make these for other seasons and holidays. Try red and green for Christmas, orange and black for Halloween, green for St. Patrick’s Day, red and pink for Valentine’s Day. These are so easy to adapt anytime of the year.

    I LOVE covered pretzels.
    I soften carmel squares, roll them out and wrap the pretzels with the Carmel strip before coating it with chocolate.
    It’s DEVINE and welcomed at Kids-Adult partys for a fast, impressive treat.
    (*Weather’s Carmel works best)
