Dipped Pretzel Rods

Pretzel rods decorated are a long-standing tradition for holiday giving and it is a great project for kids to help make. You can decorate them with anything you like. Many people use sprinkles or colored melted white chocolate to drizzle on. I kept it simple with crushed nuts and coconut.

Dipped Pretzel Rods


  • 4 ounce package Baker’s German Chocolate, chopped up
  • 1 package pretzel rods
  • Items of choice to roll in


Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper cut to fit.

Pick out the pretzels that are not broken, you will need about half the package.

In a medium microwave safe glass bowl add the chocolate. Microwave on high for 1 1/2 minutes, stir until fully melted. Using a silicone pastry brush, paint the rods with melted chocolate, covering about 80% of the rod. Let cool for a couple of seconds and then roll in your toppings (spread out on flat plates for ease). Place each rod on the baking sheet to harden up. Repeat till out of chocolate!
