"Looking for something fun to make for Valentine's Day or Easter? Grab your holiday sprinkles, and have fun! These are a yummy treat for kids and adults alike! I made these for co-workers and family members during the holidays, and put some in gift baskets for Christmas. You can also change the M&M's and use the pastel colored ones for Easter to put in the kiddies Easter Baskets... You can make them for any of the holidays, by just using different holiday jimmies and candies... I wrapped in green and red saran wrap and tied with a coordinating ribbon for Christmas. They look pretty enough to put on top of Christmas presents or packages, use as party favors for kids, or as a place setting using a name tag tied with a ribbon to each one, so the kids know where their seats are. I have dipped them in caramel and then chocolate and sprinkled with nuts and M&M's. I have also used chopped candy bars such as Butterfingers. You could even use the little cinnamon hot red candies for Valentine's Day! Or put those cute candy hearts with the little sayings down the front with some sprinkles. The sky is the limit. Use your imagination, and I am sure they will work fine for you too. Great to do as a fun day with the kiddies too!"

"The kids went crazy for these when they saw them in their baskets. I decorated them with chocolate then pastel sprinkles and wrapped them in colored cellophane paper with a bow. So cute and so delicious!"
"Wow, this was so easy, and yet so...classy! I made these for a holiday party, and bought a container with about 8 different types of sprinkles, plus some toffee bits to roll them in. I made quite the assortment. Looked and tasted great! Why didn't I think of this before? I'm going to make more for the next get-together!"
"I made these for our cookout for the 4th of July. I hope the kids like them. I couldn't resist trying one myself and they are excellent! I used caramel, then chocolate, then red white and blue sprinkles. They look so patriotic!"
"Thank you for this easy recipe! I made them for end of year teacher gifts and placed them in clear plastic bags with colorful summertime-looking bows. I tested them on my kids and husband and they especially liked the ones dipped in toffee bits."
"Trying these out on the kids before making for halloween. They loved decorating them. We used milk chocolate M&M candies for halloween, and crushed them before rolling the pretzels in them. Kids loved them. .............................................. Update: I made them for the kids coming to our Easter Hunt this year, and used Easter Sprinkles to cover the chocolate. These are quick to whip up and look pretty and taste great!"
"I made these for Valentines Day for my niece and nephews using heart and pink sprinkles. The kids loved them and the adults were mad I didn't make them any!"
"My kids are gonna flip when I give them these for Valentine's Day! They came out so good. I dipped them in melted caramel first, then rolled them in finely chopped nuts and red sprinkles. I wrapped them in pink clear wrap and tied red ribbon around the bottom. So cute! These are really great and are something different to make for any of the holidays or school activities the kids might have during the year."
"I didn't have chocolate chips but used white almond bark instead and they were wonderful and the grandkids had a blast making these and giving them as gifts for their teachers. Thanks for posting such a tasty and fun kid friendly recipe. Making these will become a tradition for our family from now on."
"Decorated them with Halloween sprinkles and they were given out at our house for Halloween. The kids ohhed and ahhed each time I passed them out. These don't take much time to make and the reactions from the kids are worth every minute it took to whip them up! I think I will be making these from now on to pass out on Halloween!!!"
"Easy and tasty. I used a couple of squares of baking chocolate chopped, melted in microwave at 50% power in 30 second increments. Used the little pretzel sticks. Next time will be the pretzel rods. Omitted the sprinkles."
"DIpped in chocolate and Halloween sprinkles, these were so cute. I gave one to each of my guests when they arrived. I wrapped them in orange Easter foil and tied with a black bow. The goblins really liked these tasty treats!"
"These are delicious and couldn't be easier. It love the chocolate with the saltiness of the pretzels. Thanks so much."
"I used the lg. pretzel rods and dipped in milk chocolate, then decorated with pastel Easter sprinkles. They look so pretty wrapped in pastel saran wrap pieces and tied with coordinating bows. My nieces and nephews and kids are going to love these in their Easter Baskets. I know they will be thrilled to have these to munch on. They are so yummy!"
"I saved this recipe from last year to make and the kids were excited to be making these. I let them do them and they loved using all the different Christmas sprinkles I had bought. They dipped them in melted caramels then after they were cool dipped them in milk chocolate, then drizzled in dark chocolate and white chocolate over the top, then decorated with some sprinkles. They are so cute and will make a great addition to my food gift baskets this year along with some flavored cocoa and coffee and chocolate spoons!"
"I son and I made these together for his day care class. I dipped them in caramel, then let them cool, then dipped them in milk chocolate. Then I sprinkled on finely chopped nuts and Christmas sprinkles. They looked so cute individually wrapped in colored saran wrap with Christmas bows. The kids loved them so much and were so happy to get this special treat at their Christmas party yesterday! The kids had fun picking out the one they wanted. They went over with great success and my son was beaming from ear to ear as he proudly passed them out! I am going to add these to my Christmas trays and boxes too, as they are colorful and delicious!"
"I have made these for years, they ARE wonderful gifts in the lovely little holiday snack bags. I love to dip mine in the milk chocolate and let cool. Then I melt some pretty green mint chips that I use a spoon to just drizzle over and around the dark. My favorite is to dip in the melted mint and while warm I roll in crushed peppermint candies...gorgeous and very Yummy!!!"
"I made these for my nieces and nephews for Halloween night as they were stopping over my house for some treats. I wanted to make something special and they all oowed and aahed over these. I dipped some in caramel then chocolate and then Halloween themed sprinkles and then others in chocolate, finely ground nuts and sprinkles. They all walked away with smiles on their faces and out the door to get their more traditional treats while munching on my treat for them! Thanks for sharing!"
"What a great idea for the holidays. I made for my Halloween luncheon at work and everyone got a kick out of them! I am going to make them for my family for Christmas and wrap them in colored saran wrap and put them on top of my packages this year!"
"We decorated with Halloween sprinkles and wrapped them in saran wrap with a bow. Everyone brought one home with them as a special gift from us for coming to our Halloween party!"
