This is one of those recipes that everyone can join in on the fun. The boys like to help by laying out the ingredients needed so I can get started right away! The sooner they’re made, the sooner the snacking starts!

They’re huge fans of using semi-sweet chocolate for this recipe but you can use dark chocolate and white chocolate as well. Don’t forget to add on the sprinkles and fun toppings for even more sweet bites!

How do I keep the melted candy melts from sticking to the surface?

You just need to set the dipped pretzels on waxed paper or parchment paper and let them dry. The melted chocolate might stick a bit, but it’ll peel off easily and stay on the pretzel once you take them off.

  • 12 pretzel rods
  • 6 ounces of chocolate chips milk
