Party Fare

Looking for an easy and delicious contribution to a party?
Make Pretzel Candy!
In this version, I used full size pretzel rods and kept the toppings all in the same woodland color palette: brown/camel/green. This is a wonderful casual "Fall" dessert.

Pretzel Candy
1 bag Snyder's Pretzel rods
1 (12 oz) bag of Nestle white chocolate morsels
1 (12 oz) bag of Nestle semi sweet mini morsels
1 bag CK Products Toffee Crunch
1 bag CK Products Toasted Coconut Flakes
1 bag CK Products Toasted Almond Crunch
(CK Products are available at many candy & cake decorating supply stores - you can search for a retailer near you here.)

Pour toppings on separate plates. Melt 1/2 bag of white chocolate morsels in the microwave for 30 secs (repeat as necc.) stir until smooth (careful not to burn it), dip 1/2 of each pretzel rod into the white chocolate and then gently roll in one of the toppings. Place each dipped pretzel on a waxed paper lined cookie sheet. When the cookie sheet is full, place it in the fridge for a few minutes to harden. Repeat for all toppings. Double or triple the batch to have a bountiful display - it looks so pretty on a table at a party, your guests won't be able to resist! Enjoy!

A fantastic idea, Anne. Thank you - I'm going to definitely try this one - if I can find the pretzels that is!

Pretzel rods should be pretty easy to find - I have also done this with tiny pretzel sticks dipped in white chocolate - they end up looking like little matches! But they do not have enough surface for "the good stuff" to stick. Hope you find them!
