Tips and Tricks for Perfect Chocolate Rod Pretzels with M&M’s

  • We have made these with both chocolate chips and with melting chocolate candy and prefer the candy type coating. It melts well, hardens quickly and the toppings stick easily to it.
  • Coating the pretzel rod works best if you have a shallow tray or plate to put the chocolate in and then roll the pretzel in the chocolate.
  • The same works for the topping, place it on a plate and then roll the pretzel rod in the topping.
  • It’s easiest to only coat the top 1/3 of the pretzel rod, but people seem to like pretzel rods with about 2/3 dipped in chocolate.
  • Lay these on a sheet of parchment paper or wax paper to cool and allow the chocolate to harden completely.
  • The little plastic bags that are for individually wrapping cookies make a suitable cover for the chocolate end of the pretzel rod.
  • They display easily in a small mason type jar.

A Verse To Share

I’m sure you have been on the brunt end of someone else’s lies. I know I have. Honesty is always the best policy. Always.

Proverbs 6:16-19

There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.
