Chocolate Covered Pretzel Sticks

During the holidays a lot of my artistic energy moves to the kitchen. Normally I don’t like to cook, but during the month of December I love to make sweets and treats. 

We tried this simple and fun recipe yesterday and it was a big hit.  All we needed was a bag of Snyder’s large pretzel rods, a bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips, and some assorted sprinkles. We melted the chips in a plastic bowl and used a spoon to cover the ends of the pretzel rods.  After that you just sprinkle the end with colorful candies.  One extra thing I do is reach into the bottom of the pretzel bag and pinch up the bits of salt that accumulate in the bottom and then sprinkle that extra pretzel salt on at the very end.  Salty and sweet….yum.

My two youngest had a blast making these.  Can you believe I let my two year old near this melted chocolate?  🙂 

It was especially fun taking photos of the finished product!

These things are not only fun to make, but they really are good! They’d be even better if they were 2/3 covered in chocolate, instead of 1/3….something to try on our next batch!


  1. Just found your blog from a link on mine. I also did a post on chocolate pretzel sticks.

    I love all your pictures with the different sprinkles. The treats are so easy to make, and perfect for kids to help.

    Great job. I’m happy I found your blog.


  2. If you are interested here is the link to my blog where you can see my pretzel stick recipe.

    Not sure if it would show on my last comment.

    • Hi Tamara,
      Thanks for the link–I like your idea of tilting the measuring cup and dipping the pretzel in it that way. Yours look great!
