One of my step-dad's favorite diet cheats is chocolate covered pretzels. I thought it would make a good birthday present for him. After making them, and seeing how EASY it is, I have decided I will also make some for the baby shower I am throwing for my sister. I can add sprinkles to match everything.
Melt and Pour Chocolate Chips
Step 1: Melt Chocolate
Pour the chocolate into the crockpot, and turn on high. Stir every 5 minutes or so until the chocolate is all melted and smooth (no lumps). To stir I used a kabob skewer. I used a bag of green chips, and a bag of brown chips. When mixed together they made a good camo green color.
While the chocolate is melting you can be getting the other stuff ready.
Step 2: Cover Plate
Cover the plate you are going to use in wax paper. The wax paper makes it so the melted chocolate doesn't stick to the plate.
I also like to get the pretzels out of the bag ahead of time. That way if I end up with a bit of chocolate on my hands I don't get it all over the bag when I try to get the next one out.
I also used some green sugar sprinkles. You don't have to use sprinkles, but I wanted to make mine special. Now is a good time to open the sprinkles, just be careful not to knock them over by accident.
Step 3: Coat the Pretzels
Put a few pretzels in the crock pot. Twirl them around to get them coated.
Step 4: Take out and Cover... in sprinkles
Use the skewer, or a fork to get the pretzels out of the chocolate. Let the chocolate drip off some, otherwise you have something a kin to giant pretzel m&ms.
You need to sprinkle them pretty soon after you get them out of the chocolate, that way the sprinkles will stick.
