Happy Hump Day! What better way to get through the rest of your day and/or week than pretzels dipped in chocolate! Chocolate paired with anything is good enough to get me through the rest of my week. I have a love for chocolate that goes way back! Chocolate has a lushness and rich flavor that is so very addicting (at least it is for me)! These sweet little sparkly blue treats are perfect for winter and for some reason reminds me of snowflakes (I think it’s the blue sprinkles!). This recipe is super easy and only takes four ingredients!
1 bag of Pretzels Sticks
8 oz of White chocolate and/or Milk Chocolate
1 or 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil (or a tablespoon of butter)
Blue Sprinkles (or any color you prefer)
Begin by putting a pot with about 2 inches of water on medium-high heat with a glass bowl on top. Wait until the water has boiled and then turn the heat down. Pour in an 8 oz of organic chocolate chips in the glass bowl with 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil (or a tablespoon of butter). The oil (or butter) gives the chocolate a glossy finish, and also helps keep the chocolate smooth. Begin stirring the chocolate right away; it should melt in less than two minutes. With a mitten remove the glass bowl of melted chocolate and move to your working area. Lay out a piece of was wax paper or a piece of foil sprayed with non-stick spray on a baking sheet. Begin dipping each pretzel in chocolate, the chocolate should cover about half of the pretzel stick. Lay the pretzel(s) down on the wax paper and sprinkle with your favorite colored sprinkles! Be as creative as you would like! Once you have used all the chocolate you can repeat the process like I did and start it all over again with white chocolate. Place the pretzels in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to help the chocolate set.
