Pretty Chocolate Covered Pretzels

Did you see these pretty chocolate covered pretzels in my weekend update post a couple weeks ago?
I wouldn't just leave you a pretty picture without explaining!

(Or maybe I would! I'm just now getting to post this...Vacation threw me off!)


Here's what you need:


White chocolate or any other chocolate (I used a mixture of a Ghiradelli baking bar and white chocolate chips- just what was in my cabinet)
Pretzels- as many as you want to use!
Sprinkles
Vegetable oil
+
Sauce pan
Glass bowl
Baking sheet
Wax paper

Here's what you do:

Melt chocolate. 
Chris introduced me to this method of heating chocolate without the risk of burning it!
He says this is what they do on the Food Network.
So I thought, it must work.
It does!

Boil water in a saucepan.
Position a glass bowl over the boiling water and place the chocolate in the bowl like this:


The chocolate will begin to melt...
Then add about a teaspoon of vegetable oil to thin the mixture (use more or less depending on what the consistency is like)

Throw in the pretzels and make cure to fully coat them.
Use tongs to place covered pretzels on a wax paper covered baking sheet.
Sprinkle with sprinkles right away!



It doesn't have to look neat. We got chocolate all over the place!

Stick them in the freezer for 10 min or in the fridge for 20min so the chocolate can harden.
Patiently wait....
That's the hardest part.

Then, Enjoy!

These are easy, fun, and the combinations are endless. 
I'd love to hear your ideas for different variations!
