A Fun DIY Snack for Any Season

Written by 

If you’re staying inside out of the hot sun anyway (and you're not quite bored enough for housekeeping!), a do-it-yourself craft or recipe might be a great way to treat yourself or spend time with your kids! The easier and more kid-friendly the project, the better, and that’s why this recipe is a great choice.

You have likely seen chocolate-covered pretzel rods before; they’ve become popular as party snack sand you can buy them from stores or online—but why buy them when they are easy to make? If you want to give it a try for yourself, try out this method from My Crafting Attic:

Making Chocolate-Covered Pretzel Rods

Before you get started, you’re going to want to get all of your ingredients together. You’ll need:

  • Pretzel rods (longer ones are easier to use!).
  • Milk & white chocolate almond bark.
  • Crushed toppings. To try: nuts, coconut, cookies, sprinkles, candy bars, and peppermint.

Step #1: Melt the chocolate. The best way to melt chocolate is over a double boiler. If you don’t have one, a glass bowl over a boiling pot of water (just make sure it’s not actually touching the water!) will work. You will want to melt the chocolate separately, so do one at a time.

Step #2: Dip the pretzel rods into the chocolate. Dip each pretzel into chocolate and lay it on a piece of wax paper. The chocolate will need to start to harden just a little bit to hold the toppings, so do 5-10 pretzel rods before adding the crushed toppings.

Step #3: Sprinkle the toppings onto the chocolate. Be liberal, experiment, try different toppings and different combinations. You can even use the white chocolate drizzled over the milk chocolate or combine it with a topping.

Step #4: Let cool. It’s important that the bars be left alone long enough for the chocolate to completely cool and harden, adhering the toppings. When they’re cool, share them—or just enjoy them yourself!
