Christmas Chocolate Pretzel Rods
My 5 year old gets lots of candy canes around Christmas time, but just doesn’t like peppermint. He gets bumbed out that he has to give them all away. I know they make different flavors, but he asked if we could come up with our own non peppermint candy sticks. We ended up coming up with these fun chocolate pretzel sticks using things that kids are sure to love! We also loved how easy these are to make. A great treat for a school class Chistmas party!

We used pretzel rods, red and green fruit roll ups (I have only found the green at Walmart), and white chocolate (or white candy coating).

We melted our chocolate in the microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir it and then put it in every 15 seconds until the is chocolate melted…stirring in between. Be careful not to over heat! We dipped our pretzel sticks and used a spoon to help cover the whole rod. Shake off the extra chocolate and then lay it on wax paper and let it dry.

Roll out the fruit roll ups and lay them on a cutting board. We used a pizza cutter and just cut them into thin strips. Wrap the fruit roll up strips around the chocolate covered rods and that is it!

Here are Santa’s little helpers with their fun pretzel rods!

Found you from Tatertots and Jello! I love dipped pretzels! These look so yummy!

What a great and easy treat!!

So cute. I have dipped my pretzels in the chocolate but have never seen or heard of wrapping them in fruit roll ups. I love this idea. Thanks for sharing. I would love it if you could link this up to our linky party going on right now.

These are so cute! Thanks for the great idea.

What a cute idea! I love how they look with the stripes.

What a great idea! I usually dip pretzels as part of a gift for all the teachers and then put sprinkles or frosting on…it gets messy! This is much better and sooo easy! Thanks!

Sweet and salty are the best combinations!! Would you please share this with my readers for Fun Stuff Fridays linky party?

Been searching for a dipped pretzel idea for Christmas! Love this one! Thanks!! 🙂
