      Another winner for Kittencal!! I made these along with a lot of other cookies and candies for Chrismas and they were the first gone. My DH and DS liked them so much I've already made another batch for just us and they're almost gone too. I made them some with milk chocolate and white chocolate because that's what I had on hand and used sprinkles on some for that holiday cheer. The only change I made was to reduce the shortening a little so it was still easy to handle but didn't melt so fast in your hands (and also because I was using milk chocolate). I also found that using two chop sticks worked better for me than using tongs. Thanks Kittencal!

      Not only was this tasty but it was so easy! I used the pretzel "dipping sticks" and dipped 2/3 of the stick in the chocolate (regular Nestle tollhouse choco chips) and then added Christmas sprinkles. Another reviewer said the recipe was hard to follow but I thought it was as simple and straight-forward as it could be (yes, 8oz = 1 cup). This is my new go-to snack for all of my kids' class parties from now on!
