How do you store candy-coated pretzel rods?

Storing candy-coated pretzel rods properly is essential for preserving their flavor and texture. An adequate method is to place the rods in an airtight container that minimizes exposure to external elements such as heat, moisture, and light.

It is also essential to store them in a dark environment that is not too cold or too hot, as fluctuating temperatures can affect the coating.

Additionally, it may be beneficial to separately wrap each pretzel rod with wax paper or parchment paper to preserve its freshness further.

With these simple tips, you can rest assured you will have delicious candy-coated pretzel rods every time!

These Unicorn Pretzel Rods are a great snack for any occasion. Fast, easy, and simple to hold and eat!


  • Pretzel rods
  • White, purple, and blue candy melts
  • Assorted sprinkles and sanding sugars


  1. Melt the candy melts via the directions on the package. Don't overheat. If you overheat, add 2 tsp of coconut oil to thin it out. (don't use anything else, or it will seize the chocolate and ruin it)
  2. Pour the melted candy coating of 2/3 of the pretzel rod and shake the rods gently to remove excess. Apply sprinkles immediately.
  3. Place the covered rods on parchment paper, wax paper, or a cooling rack.
  4. If you want to drizzle with another layer of melted candy chocolate, wait until the first layer dries. Use a fork to drizzle the second layer.
