Chocolate Dipped Pretzel

Last week I got hit with a school bake sale.  Trying to figure out what to make, I checked out the list to see that everyone was making cupcakes- makes sense, small, easy to price, and a great project for the kids to help with.  I wanted to make something that were along the same lines in size, but something a little different.  After a trip to Michael's, chocolate dipped pretzels were the answer!  They were really fun to make, sold for $1.50 each and raised $60 for Grippy's classroom.  The boys got involved and did some of the brushing of the chocolate on and sprinkling of the ball sprinkles.  A productive way to spend the afternoon with the kids Willy Wonka style.

All you need for the project.  Melting chocolate from Wilton's, pretzel rods, sprinkles,.

Melt chocolate in microwave in a glass container.  Brush on, turning pretzel as you go.

Sprinkle with candy dots.

Let cool on parchment paper, then wrap with plastic baggies (from Wilton as well).
