Mickey Mouse Party – Chocolate Pretzel Sticks

Posted by on May 27, 2013 in Food/Recipes | 0 comments

I’ve always loved chocolate covered pretzels.  The salty and sweet combination is just perfect!  For my son’s 2nd Birthday we went all out in Mickey.  I wanted some quick, yet cute and yummy, sweet snacks.  These chocolate covered pretzel sticks were the perfect  addition!  They are super easy, and with sprinkles and colored chocolate, you can make them to fit any party or theme!

Any craft store has these colored chocolates (Candy Melts) in the baking section.  I picked mine up at Michael’s.  They always have a great selection of colors.

I used a plastic cup so the chocolate would be deep enough to make dipping the pretzels easy.  Just follow the instructions on the package to melt the chocolate.  It involves putting them in the microwave, stirring, microwave, stir, etc  until the chocolate is all melted smooth.  Once it’s ready, take a pretzel stick (you can get them by the “regular” pretzels in the chip aisle at the grocery store), and dip it in the chocolate.  Swirl it around to ensure good coverage.  Set on wax paper

I did about 6, and then added the sprinkles, before the chocolate hardened too much for the sprinkles to attach.

Take your sprinkles, mine happened to be little Mickey heads in various colors, and sprinkle them on top of the melted chocolate on the pretzels.  Add as many or as few as you’d like.  I ordered my Mickey sprinkles on Amazon, but places like Party City have them online as well.

I went a little overboard and did 3 different combinations of chocolate colors and sprinkles.

Repeat until you have as many as you want.  That’s it!  Super easy, adorable and delicious!  They were a hit at the party!
