Super easy, quick and fun Christmas d.i.y. with the kids today. Inexpensive and can be made into a sweet treat to hand out to tons of people, making each gift costs less than a dollar. Toss in a nice cellophane bag and throw a bow on it and you’ll brighten a lot of days with minimal blow to your wallet! Also, the work labor is cheap because you can pay them in decorated pretzels.
It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3. Melt chocolate or get the chocolate melts at your local store(they come in a ton of colors and flavors, so I totally recommend). Melt your choice following the instructions on the bag and then hand dip each pretzel and place on parchment while your children go nuts and throw sprinkles all over the place!! (I rolled up towels and placed around the edges of the parchment so nothing would go ricocheting across the room and I wouldn’t be sweeping up sprinkles all the way until 2014.)
Wait until cool and dry and then tuck them away between layers of parchment or throw them right in our cellophane bags and head right out the door.
Make sure you dip the broken pretzels in the chocolate and eat them. This verifies nothing is poisonous and this is a necessary step in the making. I promise.
