It's a Christmas tradition in my family to bake. All that Mennonite and Amish background bubbles to the surface around holidays. I enjoy making a different "sweet" every day the entire month of December.
Todays yummy is chocolate covered pretzels, a fairly easy treat that anyone can make (I make my kids help me dip)
Chocolate Covered Pretzels
A bag of pretzels (the knot kind work best)
Dipping Chocolate (also known as Almond Bark, the kind with the wax already mixed in)
Although you can use regular chocolate, to make it dip properly you should add a little food grade paraffin wax, it's easier simply to buy dipping chocolate
Melt the chocolate according to the directions.
Dip the pretzels in the chocolate and allow to harden on wax paper
Simple and fun!
