Chocolate Covered Pretzel Rods

Pin It
For our blue and pink themed gender reveal party, I wanted to make a dessert table filled with snacks that fit the bill. In addition to pink and blue cotton candy, gum, lollipops, drinks, cupcakes and chocolate covered strawberries drizzled in pink and blue icing, I decided to make some chocolate covered pretzels.
Since some people like white chocolate and some people like semi-sweet, I did half of each and then sprinkled them with pink and blue sprinkles. These are a cute addition to any table setting. You can change up the sprinkles colors or even use different colored chocolate (which can be found in your local craft store). Enjoy!

Printable Recipe
  • 16 medium-sized pretzel rods
  • 8 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 8 oz. white chocolate chips
  • Pink and blue sprinkles
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

Place the semi-sweet chocolate chips in a microwave-safe mug. Heat in the microwave for 30 seconds. Remove and stir. Place back in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir and then place back in the microwave for 10 second increments until chocolate is fully melted.

One at a time, dip a pretzel rod in the chocolate. Use a spoon to make sure pretzel is fully coated (except the end you are holding). Allow excess to drip off. Lightly coat with sprinkles (I do this over a paper dish so I can add the extra sprinkles back to the container when I'm done). Lay on the parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Repeat with 8 pretzel rods.

Repeat these steps, using the white chocolate chips for the remaining 8 pretzel rods.

Once all 16 pretzels are coated, place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or until chocolate is firm. Store in an airtight container until ready to serve.
