Chocolate Covered Pretzel Sticks

This is a really neat gifty food idea I saw at a recent craft fair. I'm sorry I didn't get the name of the lady selling these because she had such cute ideas and I want to give her credit for this. Plus she was really nice and I thought she would be fun to hang out with.

Besides making a fun gift to take to work or give to the teachers at school on a Pass It On Plate, these pretzel sticks would be a cute tie-in on any package, or a great stocking stuffer idea.

24 Long pretzel sticks, the size of long cigars
2 c chocolate chips, andes candies, or any kind of chocolate melts
Baking decorations such as colored sugar, crushed candy canes, cookie sprinkles, etc

Line a cookie sheet with waxed paper and set aside in a cool area.

Place the chocolate chips or other meltable ingredient in a 2 cup glass measuring cup. Microwave on medium 30 seconds at a time, stirring between blasts, until smooth. Be careful to not overcook or it will burn, becoming hard and crumbly.

Tilt the measuring cup to the side and stick one pretzel stick in the melted chocolate. Twirl the pretzel to coat, then lift and allow it to drip. Place the pretzel on the waxed paper and sprinkle with baking decorations.

Reheat the chocolate as necessary, being careful not to burn it.

When completely cool, store in an airtight container or slide into food grade cellophane bags for gift giving.

Makes about 24

A Pass It On Plate is a ceramic plate that travels from person to person, sharing food gifts and bringing goodies to pot luck dinners.

Each plate has its own tracking number which corresponds to an online Plate Diary.

As people pass their plate from person to person,

they visit our website to read messages left for them by their friends, read about where the plate has been and what it has carried, and they can leave messages to their friends before they pass it on again.

Thank you for visiting!
