My boys love when I made pretzel stick desserts because that means that they can grab one as they’re passing by. To them, eating on the go is the best! Who has time to sit down and enjoy anything really during this time of the year?

How do you store pretzels coated in chocolate?

The key to keeping these fresh and delicious is to store them in an airtight container. You have to keep the air out or the pretzels will get soft.

You can leave them at room temperature, too!

How do you get off the excess chocolate candy coating when making the pretzel rods?

You can dip the pretzels with a fork and then hold it over the bowl. The melted chocolate will fall off the pretzel and land back in the bowl.
