Every Christmas we give away trays of baked goods to all of our family friends. We've been doing it for as long as I can remember and it's a tradition I love but this year we decided to change it up a little bit. We get lots of trays of goodies every Christmas and they're great but after Christmas you've got so many leftover desserts of your own you don't need all of the old mixed assortments. So, this year we gave everyone little vases of Chocolate Covered Pretzel Sticks rolled in candy cane sprinkles. I honestly think these look twice as good as any tray we've ever given out. Granted, the homemade buttermints and cream puffs are a treat but these are simple and delicious. I found the sprinkles at Freshmarket and just used regular Rold Gold pretzel rods for the sticks.



Pretzel Rods Dipped in Chocolate
1 12 ounce package pretzel rods
One package bark coating or 11.5 ounce package chocolate chips
Sprinkles of your choice (I used the candy cane ones)

Melt chocolate according to directions but be careful not to burn it. I usually use the defrost setting on my microwave on medium and stir it every 2 minutes or so. Once coating is melted take a spatula or spoon and with pretzels one at a time spread evenly over 3/4 of pretzel. It is best to let the chocolate pour over the end and then shake off the excess chocolate on the edge of the bowl. Shake sprinkles over all sides of pretzels and set on parchment paper.


Finished product!
