This recipe for Chocolate Pretzel Rods is perfect for children’s parties or as a fun way to get your kids into the kitchen.
1 bag pretzel rods
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
1 cup mini m&m’s candy (or smarties)
To prepare, cover two cookie sheets with 1 sheet of wax or parchment paper each. Pour the mini m&m’s into a very shallow bowl, pan, or plate, and set aside for now.
Pour chocolate chips into a large microwave-safe bowl, and microwave on high for 2 to 5 minutes, stirring every minute, until chocolate is fully melted and smooth.
When fully melted, dip the pretzel rods into the chocolate one at a time, and then immediately roll the chocolate covered rod into the m&m’s. Place each candy coated rod onto the wax-paper covered pan.
When all the pretzels have been dipped, place the pans into the refridgerator for at least 2 hours, until chocolate is hardened.
