mmmmm, mondays: chocolate covered pretzels


my kids love little christmas treats. let's be honest. i do too. december is usually not a month that is big in the weight loss category in my house.

anyway, i love to make chocolate covered pretzels for the kiddos. they are so easy and they will last several days. grab your ingredients and go!

chocolate covered pretzels

one bag old fashioned dipping sticks



one bag milk chocolate chips

one bag white chocolate chips

christmas sprinkles (any kind)


melt one bag of chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. start by microwaving it for one minute. mix well. return the chocolate to the microwave in 15 second intervals, stirring each time, until the chocolate is a melted, smooth consistency.



dip each pretzel into the chocolate using a spoon to coat all but one tip. place covered pretzel on a wax paper lined cookie sheet. 



sprinkle with various holiday decorations. let cool at room temperature until set. 



remove from wax paper and share. repeat the process for the white chocolate covered pretzels and you're set! enjoy!
