Christmas Pretzel Rods
What you need:
- Pretzel rods
- White candy melts
- Green candy melts
- Red candy melts
- 1-2 tablespoons of shortening
- Christmas sprinkles
Melt the white candy melts in a small bowl on 50%. Stirring each 30-40 second interval. To make the candy melts more fluid you can add 1-2 tablespoons of shortening.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Take the pretzel rods and scoop the white melted candy over the rods. Repeat until the entire rod is covered. If adding sprinkles, do so now!
Place all pretzel rods in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes to harden. Meanwhile, melt the red and green candy melts. Scoop both red and green melted candy into individual ziplock baggies.
Cut the tip on each bag. Remove the pretzel rods from the fridge. Using a zig zag pattern squeeze the red candy coating from ziplock bag on the pretzel rods. Repeat with the green candy coating.
Place the pretzel rods in fridge to chill. When you are ready to serve, remove rods from parchment paper and break off any excess candy coating.
