Here is a quick and easy treat suitable for any holiday occasion. Get the kids or grandkids to help with this project. It is a lot of fun.
You will need:
½ pound of white or chocolate almond bark
1 bag of salted pretzel rods
1 jar of festive sprinkles
Melt ½ pound of the white or chocolate almond bark in the microwave, being careful not to scorch the mixture. I like to microwave the bark 1 minute at a time, then check it and stir. Repeat process until bark is melted and smooth. Our microwave is pretty strong, so it only takes a couple of minutes to melt.
While chocolate is melting, tear off about 18” of wax paper and place on countertop. Also, pour the sprinkles onto a plate or other flat dish.
Pour melted mixture into a narrow but deep bowl or mug. I like to use a mug because the kids can hold the mug by the handle with one hand while dipping the pretzel rod with the other hand. Dip the pretzel into the melted chocolate mixture, covering about 1/3 to ½ of each the pretzel rod. Then let the excess melted chocolate drip off the pretzel back into the bowl or mug.
Next roll the dipped end of the pretzel into sprinkles. Then place pretzel on wax paper to harden and set. Repeat process until all the chocolate or pretzels are gone. These store well in large Ziplock bags.
