Can you believe that we're already saying good-bye to September and hello to October? Time seems to move faster in the fall. I thought it'd be fun to usher in the month with some chocolate dipped pretzels.
The Chatty Student (his mom often yells from the other room, "... Stop telling your teacher about the day and start playing!") brings sprinkled, chocolate-covered pretzels every Christmas. They've become his handmade tradition that I always look forward to receiving, hiding (who says I need to share?) and sneak-eating.
I was dipping some cookies in chocolate the other day and had a bit left over. Not wanting to waste, I recalled those rods and rolled out a batch.
I found some chocolate squares at Target. You can also use Wilton candy melts (available at Michael's.)
Heat it up in a pyrex glass measuring cup and dip straight into the cup.
Why not try a few kettle chips while you're at it?
I've got pumpkins and bats here, but you can go crazy and customize for any holiday or celebration.
Fun and easy to make, even more fun to eat!
Line a cookie sheet with Silpat or waxed paper.
Using a microwave-safe measuring cup, melt the chocolate for a minute. Stir the chocolate thoroughly. If not all melted, continue to melt in 10 second increments, stirring after each interval.
Roll a pretzel rod in the chocolate and place it on the prepared cookie sheet. Sprinkle with decorative sugars.
