Chocolate Dipped Pretzel Rods

I have my cookie exchange tonight!  And I am so excited to sample all the cookies - especially mine.  Though, mine are technically not cookies.  See, I was inspired by Bouffe e Bambini to make chocolate covered pretzels!  So last night I spent at least an hour and a half dipping pretzel rods in chocolate and then covering them with sprinkles, toffee bits and walnuts.  Since I fell short of the requested 6 dozen, I was not even able to sample one of them to make sure they tasted okay!

Don't they look great!  Can you believe my will power?  I can't. 

The directions to making these bad boys couldn't be easier.  Simply slather a little peanut butter on the top half of the pretzel rod and dip it into melted chocolate.  I used dark chocolate for 3 doz and milk chocolate for the remaining.  Let the excess chocolate drip off and place the pretzel on some wax paper.  Decorate your chocolate with some toppings and place them in the fridge for a few minutes to set.  The DEVOUR!!!

P.S. I'm linking up to Centsational Girl's linky party.


  1. I've done these before and they are so amazing!!

  2. I love chocolate dipped pretzels, and yours look so amazing with the peanut butter layer! I will have to try that sometime!

  3. These look great! I don't think I have your will power, I would have eaten them :)

  4. Wow these look wonderful. About 5 years ago, a local store went out of business and they had boxed assortments of pretzel rods which many toppings. My favorites were the ones covered with mini M&Ms. I've never made them but they were soooo good. I'm going to have to try to recreate these.

  5. Those look delicious! :) I love anything sweet and salty!
