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.  

Ingredients:
  • Melt and Pour Chocolate Chips
  • Pretzels
  • Sprinkles
  • Crock Pot
  • Wax Paper

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.

I'll bet they taste delicious, but personally I would have spent a little more time applying the chocolate, maybe if the chocolate mix was thinner, more fluid-like perhaps you'd get better coverage on each pretzel when dipped. Not that I'm trying to downplay your results at all, I'm just a stickler for details. Great Job, Hope Your step-dad liked them!
