{recipe} st. patty's day chocolate covered pretzels.

with st. patrick's day this weekend it is hard to think of anything but green food, beer, corned beef, four leaf clovers and irish car bombs. with all the drinking that will be done this weekend i thought it was only fitting to share on of my favorite, super easy st. patty's day treats, white chocolate covered pretzels.

Chocolate Covered Pretzels.

1 large bag of mini pretzels (i like synder's of hanover, but any brand will do)
1 bag White Chocolate Candy Melts (Michael's or any craft store carries them)
Green Candy Sprinkles & Colored Sugar
1 Microwave Safe Bowl
Wax Paper

1. Using a microwave, melt the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl, stopping every 30 seconds to stir the chocolate.

2. Carefully hold each pretzel, dip it halfway into the melted chocolate. Lay the pretzels on wax paper. While the chocolate is still wet, sprinkle with candy sprinkles or colored sugar.
3. Allow to dry at least 15 minutes before removing the pretzels from the wax paper. 
4. Store in a sealed container in a cool place. Do not refrigerate or freeze because it could cause the appearance of the chocolate to change colors.

the best part about this, is all you need to do with swap out the sprinkles to match every holiday/occasion and you have a perfect sweet treat!
