Chocolate Dipped Pretzels

photo by DSweeney

As far as chocolate goodies go, this is probably one of the easiest.

Pretzels (the small hard kind, either stick or regular shaped)
good quality chocolate
chopped nuts, sprinkles, crushed peppermints, or white chocolate (melted)

Melt the chocolate in the microwave or over low heat on a stove. Dip the pretzels in the chocolate and set on a wax paper lined cookie sheet. Allow to harden.

If you dip the entire pretzel, a nice touch is to then drizzle a contrasting type of chocolate over top (ie-white).
If you dip 1/2 of the pretzel, you can then also dip it into other various toppings.

When they are hard gather them up in little cellophane bags and give them as gifts. That is, if you don't eat them all first.
