If you’re being adventurous why not enlist the kiddos to help out too? It’s a fun activity and way for them to spark their creativity with very little mess. That is if you can control the sprinkle situation.
The pretzel rods are a little tricky when dipping and covering with the chocolate. Over time I’ve found that using a spoon to help drizzle the chocolate on to the pretzel while holding over the bowl seems to really help.
Snyder’s pretzels are my preferred brand as they hold up well once the chocolate is applied.
How to Make Valentine’s Day Chocolate Dipped Pretzels
- Place candy melts in a glass dish and melt in the microwave for 1 minute. Stir gently. If not melted smooth, repeat in 30 second intervals.
- Dip the top of pretzel rod into melted candy wafers. Tap off any excess and set on a sheet of wax paper to harden. You can also use a spoon to drizzle the chocolate over the rods.
- Add sprinkles before chocolate hardens.
