  • 15 pretzel rods
  • 12 oz chocolate chips (or use half chocolate and half white chocolate)
  • Christmas sprinkles


  • Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Melt for 30 seconds at a time removing and mixing each time until melted and smooth.
  • Hold pretzel rods over chocolate and spoon on. Next, sprinkle on Christmas sprinkles and lay on your prepared parchment paper to dry.
  • Repeat with each pretzel rods. Allow the chocolate to harden (refrigerate as needed) then serve.


Baking Tip: Don't skip this step. Parchment paper is a must so your chocolate can dry and then be removed easily.

How to Store Pretzels:

Keep pretzels in an airtight container for 4-5 days.
