We are so portable these days, with remote work and school, that we decided to spent the week after Thanksgiving at a cabin in our nearby mountains. In between school and hiking I wanted a fun and easy activity to feel festive at the start of December. The fact that we made these in a kitchen not our own proves how easy it is 🤣 So if you like chocolate covered pretzels and your kiddos like (love:) sprinkles, make these. It’s a perfect holiday activity for age preschool and up!
From start to finish it took us about 30 minutes, plus time for the chocolate to set. I melted the chocolate over LOW heat on the stove, stirring often and watching carefully that it didn’t burn. Once it’s smooth and warm (about 10 minutes) it’s ready to pour into a tall glass. We used 6oz of chocolate melts for about 12-15 pretzel rods.
I set up a spot with wax paper for both Penny and Jack. They shared the tall glass of melted chocolate to dip the pretzels. Penny worked pretty independently. I helped Jack with the chocolate while he enjoyed testing and playing with the sprinkles.
