Chocolate Covered Pretzels

From the Recipe Shoebox. 


Ingredients:
Almond Bark
(of
ten found in the baking aisle next to the chocolate.  I often can find it at Walmart.  You can use candy melts as well)
Mini pretzels
wax paper
sprinkles

Directions: 

Break up your almond bark into smaller pieces so as to ensure quicker and more even melting.  Place them in a large non stick pan and melt over LOW heat.

Stir occasionally until everything is melted.  Meanwhile, lay out sheets of wax paper so you are prepared with someplace to put your pretzels. 

Add a handful or two of pretzels at a time.  Carefully fold them into the almond bark so that nothing breaks.  Make sure they are completely coated.

 Using a fork, or skewer or something with prongs that won't scrape your pan,  remove a few pretzels and tap the excess off.  (tap the fork or the skewer against the side of the pan).

 Place the pretzels on the wax paper and separate them so they are not touching.  After you have placed about a dozen on the paper, decorate with your sprinkles of choice.  Make sure that you put your sprinkles on before the almond bark sets.  After sprinkling some pretzels, go back to the pan and continue as above.  Repeat until all the almond bark is gone.  You will have about five or six full 9x13 sheets of wax paper.  Make sure that you have room on your table to store them while they are cooling.

I place my wax paper onto a transferable surface so that I can move the paper if necessary.

 have fun thinking up other things to do with various holidays,  Just make sure that you use small sprinkles .  It will look better.
