Guest Post and Chocolate Pretzels


Christmas Chocolate Covered Pretzels
Happy Tuesday - I'm excited to be guest posting today at The Lady Behind the Curtain.  Make sure you stop by to visit Sheryl and link up your favorite recipe at Cast Party Wednesdays tomorrow!

How is your countdown to Christmas coming?  I'm really getting into the holiday spirit - the house is decorated, the tree is up and I'm very close to finishing shopping.  Next up is baking and meal planning (more on this below). First up in the sweets area, are these chocolate covered pretzels.  Very easy to do and really add a nice pop of color!

First start with plain pretzels rods...



I melted Baker's white chocolate squares and then the trick I use is instead of dipping them, is using a small paint brush.  Less waste and easy to control where you want the chocolate


I had many different sprinkles/toppings to choose from








This would be a great project to do with kids too!



I decided to make some "girly" ones too by using red paste food coloring to make it pink


Ok, now that the pretzels are done I need to start thinking about Christmas Eve and Christmas.  Since I pretty much do the same thing every year, including making homemade raviolis (which are an Italian tradition in my family), below are posts from last year that are my favorites to share with you!


I hope you have a very merry holiday!
