White Chocolate Pretzel Candy Apples

2 Granny Smith Apples

2 Sticks (I used some twig like stick that I purchased from Michael's) 

8oz (2 bars) White Chocolate 

2 teaspoons of shortening 

1/2 crushed salted pretzels


Insert sticks into apples. In a large microwave safe bowl,combine chocolate and shortening. Microwave for 2 minutes, stopping every 30 seconds to stir. (May take longer depending on your microwave). Dip apples in chocolate mixture, then place on a tray lined with wax paper. (parchment will work too)

Allow to set for about 1 minute , then sprinkle each apples with crushed pretzels.

To get that drizzle on top I just took my spatula and dipped it into the leftover chocolate then let it drip on top of each apple.
