Ingredients and Supplies
Salted Pretzel Rods ($1)
2 bars Ghiradelli Milk Baking Chocolate (4 oz.)(.20 cents got on clearance!)
2 bars Ghiradelli Semi-Dark baking chocolate (4 oz.) (.20 cents)
Coconut (.50 cents)
Crushed pecans ($2)
Double boiler (I use a regular pot and a metal mixing box)
Total Cost $3.90 (makes 10-15)
First, add water to your double boiler and get it boiling.
Add the chocolate and stir until it’s completely melted. (When you lift your spoon out of the chocolate it should be a thin drizzle)
Constantly stir the chocolate, because you do not want to burn the chocolate.
While the chocolate is melting, lay out enough wax paper to be able to place all of your finished chocolate rods on.
If you wish to add topping to your rods, get out plates and put enough of your topping on the place that you can easily roll the rod in the topping.
Once your chocolate is done melting, remove it from the heat.
Dip your pretzel rods into the chocolate about 1/2-3/4 of the way. Use a spoon to help cover the whole rod, as the chocolate probably won’t be deep enough to actually dip it in.
After you have dipped the rod, roll it gently in the topping of choice. (Ie. sprinkles, coconut, crushed cookies etc.)
Once rolled, place gently on the wax paper to dry. (You can speed up the drying process by placing the rods on a baking sheet and in a freezer for 5-10 minutes)
Let them dry until the chocolate is completely hardened.
Now you are ready to serve! Enjoy!
