Step 1: Ingredients
- Candy melts or any chocolate
- Microwavable cup
- Wax paper and a tray
Take a cup of candy melts (I used Wilton and took around 15 to 20 candies) and microwave it for 1.30 minutes. (It really depends on the microwave and candy melts. So it is better to do it in 30 seconds intervals).
Dip each pretzel into the chocolate so that only top half is covered with chocolate and place it in the waxpaper. Sprinkle it with sprinkles. Do not let sit for long time. the chocolate will start to froze and the sprinkles will not stick. May be do four dipping and then sprinkle again dip four and then sprinkle. Use spoon to coat the chocolate evenly on both the sides.A cup (As shown) of melted chocolate coated around 20 pretzels.
If you are planning ahead to gift this then get a cute gift box and line it with wax paper and arrange the pretzels and wrap it with ribbon and bow. Or as the title says, if you are doing it in last minute , take a cup from the party supplies you already have and arrange the pretzels and wrap it with tissue paper. To add a decorative touch, tie a ribbon around the cup with a little Christmas message.That is it ! your edible gift is now ready to gift.
