Pretzel Party Treats
Making pretty pretzel party treats is so easy. Half the work is find the ingredients,
including pretzel rods, chocolate or candy melts and sprinkles or crushed candies that
fit your party's color theme. You'll also need wax paper and some utensils. If you can

There are just a few simple steps to making dipped pretzels:
- Step one: Find sturdy pretzel rods. We recommmend Anderson's Pretzel rods,
left. They're packaged properly, but expect a few breaks in transit. Still, these
are the best.
- Step two: Melt white chocolate, dark chocolate or a candy confection, such as
Wilton Candy Melts (another good option is Melt and Mold flavored wafers). You
can melt in the microwave or use use a chocolate melter, or a double-boiler.
- Tip: If you're melting with a microwave, start with a microwave safe dish
and melt your confection minimally, such as 25-30 seconds. You don't
want to burn the candy.
- Step three: Dip pretzel rods into the candy coating, rotating the rod for an even
coat. Allow to cool on wax paper if you want to add another color or design. or
place your pretzel rods into a candy mold.
- Step four: Decorate your creations with a melted candy of a different color or
cover them in sprinkles as they are cooling on wax paper.
- Step Five: Display your creation. Stick pretzel rods in a heavy base of candies,
such as M&Ms, Jordan Almonds or Jelly Belly jelly beans.
