From Every Day with Rachael Ray April 2007. These are so cute! Time does not include standing time.
- 8 ounces chocolate chips
- 20 thick pretzel sticks
- 1⁄3 cup pink decorator sugar
- In a bowl, microwave the chocolate chips at medium power for 10 seconds; stir. Repeat until melted and smooth.
- Dip each pretzel halfway in the chocolate and hang off the side of a cooling rack (put foil down to catch the drips). Let the chocolate set slightly, about 30 minutes.
- Sprinkle the chocolate with decorating sugar and let set completely, about 2 hours (do not refrigerate).
Made for Think Pink Tag Event 2010. These turned out well but I did need to add a bit of half & half to the chocolate because it was seizing a bit and that addition kept the chocolate smooth. I used pretzel thins and dipped the fronts of them in the chocolate and then the pink sugar - they turned out so cute!! I had enough chocolate leftover and dipped a quart of strawberries in the dip too which is a bonus! It was a lot of fun and very simple to do and I appreciate that!
These little babies were so much fun! My 4 year old and I made them yesterday afternoon for a fun after preschool treat. Everyone loves the flavor - I mean, how can you go wrong with chocolate and pretzels?! I couldn't buy just plain pink decorator sugar though. Apparently, the new thing is flavored sprinkles and that meant the closest I could get to just pink was (gulp!) green & pink watermelon flavor! I thought they tasted horrible & even considered picking out the little green sprinkles with tweezers, but my family thought that was an insane idea. And besides, they really enjoyed the flavor of them. :) Thanks for posting, KaraRN! Made & enjoyed for Think Pink Tag game, October 2010.
I took distinct pleasure in making a double batch of these for a group I host each month, & they were a big hit ~ Gone in no time! Will be doing these again! Thanks for sharing! [Tagged, made & reviewed in the Think Pink Tag Game in Honor of Breast Cancer Awareness]
