Happy Happy Thursday everybody!!! Okay, so I totally have such a fun treat to share with y’all today, but first a little tiny story time slightly involving these treats. I really had so much fun making these amazing pretzel bites on Sunday, I mean, look at how cute the little edible shamrocks are, and I was all ‘these are so perfect for St. Patrick’s Day.’
Well, I guess that whole luck of the Irish didn’t quite rub off when I made these because early early AM on Monday while driving to the gym, some unseen and unknown object was in the road, jumped up and cut about a 4 inch long gash in my tire. Let’s just say I didn’t get very far on that tire. Y’all, it was pitch black out and the road I was stopped on had no turn offs anywhere, so I’m just hanging out on a road that people fly by on with nowhere to go sitting with my flashers on.
I was a little terrified to be sure, but God bless the kind police officers who not only blocked the road so no one would hit me but also changed my tire. Also, you will notice down below that the ‘Recipe Card’ that usually accompanies my posts is for some reason not wanting to work, so I will be putting this recipe right here in the text, sorry if it looks super janky haha. I do absolutely love these pretzel bites though, so easy to make and hello, sweet and salty, my absolute favorite. I hope y’all had a wonderful day and thank you so much for stopping by!!!
chocolate melted and ready to be dipped…
then, ready for sprinkles…
Here’s the recipe:
12-15 Pretzel Rods (or More Depending on How Many You Need).
2 (12 Ounce) Bags of Wilton Candy Melts, Bright White.
St. Patrick’s Day Sprinkles, Any of Your Choosing.
Place a medium sized sheet of parchment paper onto a flat surface.
In a tall microwave safe container such as a drinking glass, place 12-14 ounces of the Quik melts into it.
Place in the microwave for 1 minute at 50% power, take out, stir, then place back in at full power in 30 second intervals until completely melted.
Dip your pretzel rods into the melted chocolate until half of the pretzel is coated in the chocolate, let the excess drip off, and over a bowl, shake your sprinkles all over your pretzel until coated to your liking, place on your parchment paper.
Repeat with the remaining pretzels and let the chocolate set for about 10 minutes, then enjoy!!!
