Pretzel sticks.  White chocolate dipped.  Holiday sprinkled.  Trust us, you’re going to want to make a bunch of these (they won’t last as holiday decor in your house for long!)

White Chocolate-Dipped Pretzel Log 1

White Chocolate-Dipped Pretzel Logs

{Makes 12 pretzels}

4 ounces white chocolate, chopped

12 pretzel rods

1/3 to 1/2 cup mixed red, green and white nonpareil sprinkles

To melt the chocolate, place three-fourths of the chocolate in the top of a double boiler over barely simmering water in the lower pan, or in a heatproof bowl set over barely simmering water in a saucepan .  Slowly melt the chocolate, stirring occasionally.  Remove the top of the double boiler or the bowl and wipe the bottom to prevent any water from coming in contact with the chocolate.  Stir in the remaining chocolate.  Continue to stir until all the chocolate is melted.

Line a rimmed baking sheet with waxed paper or parchment paper.  (Do not spray the paper with cooking spray.) Working with 1 pretzel at a time, dip the top half in the melted chocolate and allow the excess chocolate to drip back into the pan.  You can also use the the back of a spoon to remove the excess.  Place the dipped pretzels on the prepared baking sheet.  Allow the chocolate to cool and set slightly, about 5 minutes.  Sprinkle the chocolate-covered half of each pretzel with sprinkles, turning to coat all sides.

Refrigerate until the chocolate is hardened, about 20 minutes.  The pretzels will release from the paper once dry.  (The dipped pretzels can be made up to 1 week ahead.  Layer them, without touching, between sheets of waxed paper in a flat airtight container and store at room temperature.)
