  1. Any kind of pretzels (I used rod salted pretzels) I just grabbed a bowl full
  2. 2 1/2 cups of Chocolate Chips
  3. Various Sprinkle Candy and Crushed Candy Canes
  1. 1 Took 2 candy canes and placed them in a Ziploc baggie and on the flat side of a meat tenderizer son son pounded the candy canes into tiny pieces. The in a microwave bowl I melted the chocolate chips. I placed a silicone sheet on a pan (if you do not have the silicone sheet you can use wax paper). The kids dipped the pretzels in the melted chocolate placed on the pan sheet and sprinkled the candies over the chocolate. When all the pretzels were done I placed in the refrigerator for the chocolate to harden for approximately 15 minutes.
  1. This is a great activity to do with kids - no baking involved plus they will love to eat their completed goodies!
