I’ve met a great group of colleagues at work and we’ve started a cooking club. Every month or two, one of us will host the rest and we learn how to cook or bake something new. This time around was a chocolate covered edition. We went wild dipping and decorating some pretzel wands and strawberries!
It’s every twenty something year olds dream to have these magical sweet treats! Chels and I first discovered these at a fund raiser which was dangerous because if you know your money is going to a good cause why not buy hundreds of them and indulge?? After all, it is helping somebody else! Anyway, anything dipped in chocolate is a gift from God. I don’t know if you have noticed but we are all about simple fixes and these are a great treat that you can share with others.
What you will need:
– Long Stemmed Pretzels
– White Chocolate Chips
– Sprinkles and/or any other desired toppings (our favorite choices: mini-marshmallows, coconut flakes, sparkly sprinkles)
(First step: Gather all your ingredients and place chocolate chips in a heating pan on the stove. I’ve heard you can use the microwave but then the chocolate would harden much faster so I wouldn’t suggest it. You want to have the pretzels out and ready to dip though because once the chocolate is melted, it’s go time)
(BEWARE: We melted on heat level 1. The chocolate chips must melt on a very low level, otherwise they don’t become a creamy consistency and will actually harden/burn. Once the chocolate is melted, you must work quickly. Keep the burner on though as you start dipping.)
Hey, they can’t all come out perfect looking but don’t worry they won’t last long anyway. The combination of salty sweet gets everyone addicted instantly and before you know it, all that’s left are scattered sprinkles like a fairy crime scene.
