25 Days of Treats: Chocolate Dipped Pretzel Rods

I have this friend who is amazing at a lot of things. One thing she is amazing at is dipping things in chocolate. Her kids brought over a neighbor treat the other day, and it was chocolate dipped pretzel rods. They were beautiful and delicious. I felt inadequate to make mine, except I bought all the ingredients so I felt obligated. My goal is to someday dip things in chocolate as well as she does.

At the end I had some left over chocolate. It would have been a travesty to waste it, so I dipped oreos in it. There is nothing better than oreos, and even better, oreos dipped in chocolate.

Chocolate Dipped Pretzel Rods

One Bag of Pretzel Rods
About 3 cups of melting chocolates
Any type of topping you might like: sprinkles, mini chocolate chips, coconut, crushed nuts, more chocolate to drizzle over the top...

Melt chocolates in microwave for 1 minute, stir, and then microwave in 30 second increments until chocolate is melted. The easiest way to dip is to pour chocolate in to a tall, skinny container. I used a vase and it was perfect. Lay on wax paper or parchment paper. Sprinkle whatever extras over the top and let the chocolate set.

Follow same steps for the oreos!
