  • microwave
  • Medium Bowl
  • spatula


  • 12 oz chocolate chips or chocolate bark cut into pieces
  • 10 pretzel rods
  • 1/3 cup mini m&m's


  • In a microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate chips or melting chocolate for 2 minutes. Stir and reheat in 1 minute intervals until well melted. Pour onto a plate or shallow dish.
  • Roll top 1/3-2/3 of pretzel rod in the chocolate until the top is coated well.
  • Pour mini m&m's onto a different plate and roll pretzel rod in the m&m's. Use your fingers to press m&m's onto the chocolate. Lay pretzel rod onto parchment paper and allow to cool completely.



  • 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.
