Chocolate Covered Pretzel Rods

For my oldest son's birthday party back in September, I made chocolate covered pretzel rods as party favors. I dipped half in semi-sweet chocolate and then rolled it in sprinkles and I dipped the other half in white chocolate and rolled them in crushed/food processed oreo crumbs. The white chocolate covered in oreos were by far my favorite. I don't think I had ever had chocolate covered pretzels, I have definitely been missing out. The combination, of sweet and salty is perfect. Just like my Halloween treats I posted earlier this week. These are easy and can be dressed up for any season, holiday, or event. Yum, yum, yum!

Chocolate Covered Pretzel Rods

Pretzel Rods
16 oz chocolate chips, white or semisweet
2 TBSP oil
Toppings such as crushed oreos, sprinkles, etc.
Melt chocolate chips in a double boiler. I don't have one of these, so place a glass bowl on top of a sauce pan with water in it. Place just enough water in the sauce pan to where when the water boils, it won't touch the glass bowl. Place chocolate and oil in bowl. Heat over medium low heat until chocolate is completely melted. Make sure that the water does not mix with the chocolate. Dip each pretzel rod into the chocolate, covering as much as you desire and then roll the chocolate covered pretzel rod in your chosen topping. After rolling it in your topping, place on wax paper. Allow to cool and then store in an air tight container until ready to serve. This is an easy and inexpensive treat.
