I've been looking for ideas for treats to make for Halloween this year. It seems like for every Holiday you can get a container of decorative sprinkles that Wilton puts out. I always pick up some for each Holiday. You can get them at craft stores like Michael's or Hobby Lobby. They also have different Holiday colored Candy Melts too. I've seen these things at Wal-Mart too.
These are another simple treat that you can make. I melted some chocolate in a tall microwave save glass so that the chocolate covered most of the pretzel rod. Take some sprinkles and decorate the chocolate. Once the chocolate has cooled, you can melt some other crazy color of chocolate like the green color I got, and drizzle the chocolate over the sprinkles.Print
1 12oz bag pretzel rods
1 12 oz bag of Wilton candy melts, green
Lay a long piece of waxed paper on a clean, dry, surface.
- Melt candy melts per packaged directions. (If making different colors with the white candy melts, see notes.)
- Dip pretzel rods into melted candy and set on a sheet pan lined with waxed paper or parchment paper.
- Sprinkle with desired sprinkles. TIP: (When sprinkling with sprinkles, sprinkle over a bowl to catch the extra sprinkles. Use the extra sprinkles to make a sprinkled variety pretzel rod.) Lay dipped/sprinkled rods on waxed paper, let set.
- To make extra fancy, use a small ziploc sandwich sized bag and put a couple tablespoons of white melted candy melts inside, cut off a small piece of the corner; drizzle melted candy melts over pretzel rods. Let set.
