I love chocolate covered pretzels. The only problem is ... if you buy them, you HAVE TO EAT THE WHOLE BAG. Now, I'm trying to lose weight -- not so easy to do during the holidays. So ... I decided to make just a few.
I already had a jar of mini pretzel rods. I found a little liqueur glass in the cupboard (now, where did it and its brothers come from?) which was just the right size for dipping.
Next, I filled it with chocolate chips and melted them in the microwave. (About 45 seconds.)
Next, I dipped the pretzels in the glass and rolled them in non-pareils.
A bit messy. I ended up getting out my frosting knife and smearing the pretzels with chocolate and then sprinkling them with the non-pareeils. But in the end, they looked just fine.
They were YUMMY -- and not too many to ruin the old diet (especially since I shared them).
An easy-to-make holiday treat.
Have you ever made them? (Would you?)
