Chocolate Covered Pretzel Rods

These are my FAVORITE "go-to" party snack!  
Super easy and super super yummy! 

Guess where i went shopping?

Below are the items you will need...
(when i make these no one can have just 1, so i make triple the amount needed)

3 Bags of Pretzel Rods
1 Box of peppermint candy canes 
1 Box of Oreos
2 Bags of White Chocolate chips
2 Bags of Mile Chocolate chips
not pictured are some Holiday sprinkles I added later on

Take all the candy canes and Oreos and placed them in separate Ziploc bags.
Then take all the air out and smashed them with a rolling pin. 

Melt the chocolates in separate pans, until chocolate is completely melted and smooth.  Then remove from heat.

Using a spoon, spoon the chocolate over the pretzel, leaving a few inches bare as a "handle."  Allow the excess chocolate to drip off the pretzels by twisting and wiggling the pretzel.  This will help to avoid the chocolate pooling under the pretzel or into the toppings.

Immediately cover chocolate with desired toppings and place on foil-lined baking sheet.   

I found it easier to put the topping on a plate and then roll the pretzels instead of using the bowl in the pictures above

When the sheet is full, place it in the fridge to set for about 30 mins.  
 Once set, they're ready to be served or kept in an air-tight container for a few days.

I'm so excited about how these turned out!
