I have a coupon for pretzel sticks, you know the monster ones. I was just thinking that it would be fun and maybe inexpensive to dip them in chocolate and then maybe red, white and blue sprinkles if I can find them, bu the chocolate at least ( for Nicole's party) Can I just use chocolate chips melted or would it chip off???

Im trying to study and I miss the village terrible so every chapter or so, I check back in ;)

I think it may work better with almond bark...

Hi Robin! :) I hope your studying goes well! Will you be finished soon, so that you may have more time to be with us?....

...Your idea with the pretzel sounds very good!:chef:

Chocolate chips should work, especially if you have them in the cupboard already, kwim. Instead of buying sprinkles you an use food coloring to dye sugar or coconut.

Try mixing a tablespoon of shortening with the chocolate when you melt it. It should help the consistency and help it stick to the pretzel better.

I have done that before and it works, I have used the kind of chocolate you melt for candies and regular chocolate chips and both have worked well and it hasn't chipped off...

I do mine the same way as quiltermom- just add a tablespoon or so of crisco to the chocolate & melt.

I melt down the chocolates you use for molds in my Pyrex measuring cup in the microwave, run the chocolate up the side, then roll a pretzel stick in it so 1/2 of the pretzel is covered, wait about 30 seconds to let that start to set, the roll lightly in sprinkles. I then set them in a goblet to cool so you don't get the one flat side you get when you cool on paper. I put these out on a dessert buffet table in wine glasses, chocolate side up and it looks really nice, just keep out of the sun.
