Easy Pretzel Pleasers

Humor me for a moment, and picture this: last Saturday at 5:30pm, we were expecting a dinner date (with kids) at 6pm sharp. Garlic chicken was finishing in the oven, and there was a little calm before everyone was expected to arrive. Liam, my 6 year old, comes in and looks at the raspberry galette I have cooling on the counter.

Easy Pretzel Pleasers “What’s THAT?!” he asks, and my heart sinks. Of course. Galettes are not big kid pleasers…SNAP! So I raid my pantry: white chocolate + pretzel sticks. Within 20 minutes, I melted the chocolate, dipped, coated, sprinkled and set these easy pretzel pleasers out before anyone had a chance to knock on the door.
It’s not gourmet, but my kids love them!

Yes, these treats seem too simple to impress, but you’ll find that these are a perfectly simple surprise for kids. The parents will be asking for the recipe for both the raspberry galette and these easy little pretzel pleasers.

Ingredients

Pretzel Rods

Melting Chocolate Discs

Decorating Candies and Sprinkles

Directions

1Melt chocolate in microwave in a coffee mug. Heat for 10-15 seconds at a time and stir occasionally to prevent chocolate from burning. (Alternatively, you could use a marie bain too).

2Dip pretzel rod halfway and place on parchment paper. Do in small batches and then decorate.

3Sprinkle with your favorite toppings.

4Note: If chocolate is too stiff, you can add a 1/2 teaspoon of vegetable or grape seed oil to increase fluidity.
