White Chocolate

White chocolate pieces

Melting chocolate chips

Put the chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and add 2 tblsp. of shortening. Microwave for twenty seconds, stir and repeat steps until melted. Make sure the chocolate does not over heat (it makes it impossible to work with).

Crushed Candy Canes

Smash three candy canes in a bag. Make the pieces as fine or big as you want.


Use your favorite Holiday sprinkles.

Make sure you add your sprinkles to the chocolate covered pretzels after they are freshly dipped in chocolate.

After your chocolate covered pretzels are perfectly decorated, place the cookie sheets in the fridge. This method of cooling and drying the chocolate makes the pretzels shiny. Serve on a plater for your next party or individually wrap a few and give it to your friends and co-workers for the holidays. Enjoy!
