To make these very delicious chocolate covered pretzels, you'll need pretzels(!), either rods or a traditional pretzel shape, almond bark and...
Decorative sprinkles. I used Halloween sprinkles, black bats and orange sprinkles. Of course, these chocolate covered pretzels can fit any occasion simply by changing up the sprinkles...planning a baby shower use pink and blue sprinkles, Christmas use red and green sprinkles.
Break the almond bark up into sections and place in a microwave save bowl. Microwave the chocolate for 1 minute, on high. Remove chocolate and stir. Continuing microwaving the chocolate cooking for 15 second intervals, stirring between each interval, until the chocolate is fully melted.
Dunk the pretzels into the melted chocolate.
*Avoid using the broken pretzels. The broken bits will leave pretzel crumbs in the melted chocolate.
Remove the pretzels from the chocolate with a spoon or your finger. Set the pretzels onto parchment paper and quickly cover with sprinkles. It's best to have an assistant to help with this part so you can continue covering the pretzels with chocolate. You need to work quickly before the chocolate starts to harden.
My assistant was quite liberal with her sprinkling.
One package of almond bark will be more than enough to cover an entire bag of pretzels.
Once your pretzels are chocolate and sprinkle coated, you can enjoy them yourself or you can wrap them up and share them.
After we (Grace and I) ate more than we should, we decided to wrap some up to share with Grace's teacher.
Into a Goodwill basket, we arranged a fall colored tea towel, chocolate covered pretzels and a few gourds.
Of course, my favorite part...the black bat gift tag, signed by the sous chef herself Grace.
