Items you need:
- 2 dozen large pretzels or pretzel sticks
- 12 oz. (1 bag) of semi-sweet chocolate
- 12 oz (1 bag) of white chocolate
- Candy cane (3) crushed
- 2 tblsp. of Shortening (2 tblsp. for both the semi-sweet chocolate and white chocolate)
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).
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!
