Chocolate Covered Pretzel Rods Recipe
Chocolate Covered Pretzel Rods - one of our family's favorite treats during the holidays. Pretzels dipped in a homemade caramel sauce, then in melted chocolate, drizzled with white chocolate and your choice of sprinkles.
- 1 bag pretzel rods
- candy quick chocolate and white
- desired toppings and sprinkles
Homemade Caramel Sauce
- 2 cups brown sugar
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 cup light corn syrup
- 1 stick butter
- 1 tsp vanilla
Make caramel sauce by melting your butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add brown sugar, milk and corn syrup. Boil over medium-high heat for 5 to 6 minutes, stirring constantly. Around 240℉ (mixture will get a thicker, a little shiny and a tad darker). Remove from heat, add vanilla and stir.
Dip each pretzel in caramel and set on wax paper. You can choose to repeat this step for extra gooey pretzels.
While caramel is setting, melt entire tray of chocolate candy quick according to package directions.
When caramel is just a tad sticky to the touch, carefully lift rod and dip in chocolate. Place on a clean sheet of wax paper to harden.
Be sure to sprinkle your preferred toppings immediately, before chocolate has set so that it sticks to the pretzels.
For a beautiful white drizzle, wait for chocolate to harden, then melt a few squares of the white candy quick and drizzle over the top.
