Christmas Fun-Day 23
On Thursday, we had a snow day-
a perfect day to make the pretzel
rods for gifts.
Wax paper down, wire racks on top,
a dipping cup, pretzels, sprinkles,
crushed peppermints and the melted
I poured some of the chocolate
in the dipping cup and then
dipped each pretzel in the cup.
This worked really well, especially
when knocking the extra chocolate
off each pretzel. I then laid each one
on a rack to harden a bit.
Then came the fun-putting on
the sprinkles! WARNING:
Don't let the chocolate harden
too much or the sprinkles won't
stick. You'll need to work a bit
quickly. Next time I will work
in small batches.
The final step: Putting them
in gift bags for my co-workers.
I used Wilton Chocolate Melties
for this project. I like this better
than the white chocolate bark.
melts much smoother.
