Chocolate Covered Pretzels

Alright, don’t call me lazy but this is seriously the easiest recipe I might ever have on the blog. Seriously.

When I was trying to weigh out the decision on whether or not to give party favors for the kids coming to Archie’s first birthday party, I asked over ten people what I should do. Yay or nay?

All the answers were a mixed bag. I, on one hand, didn’t want to worry about buying party favors. The kids coming with their parents to Archie’s party were of vastly different ages and what teenager wants a smiley face maze to play with? Yeah, that’s what I thought. None.

But from my understanding of other parents that are more seasoned than I am, kids expect party favors. Parents expect party favors. And I don’t like to do things halfway but I didn’t want to spend a lot of time or money on favors that kids would end up throwing in the trash. Problem solved with a little sweet and salty treat.

Enter: Ghiradelli’s new melting wafers– I wanted to make them fun with some sprinkles I already had on hand and I printed up little tags that thanked them (from Archie of course) for coming to his party. I sent them home with the kids as they left our house, so sorry for the parents that had sugar high kids as they were getting home to try and wind down for bed. Cake and chocolate pretzels? That sounds like the perfect party if I was still a kid. Wait. That sounds like the perfect party as an adult. Duh.

Put these on your Christmas “baking” list to drop off at your neighbors and friends houses for Christmas treats and a little yuletide love. P.S. Beginning of October gives me full permission to start talking about Christmas. You didn’t know that was a rule? Well, now you do. Permission given.

Happy mid-week friendlies!

Pretzels

Sprinkles (chocolate and regular)

Directions:

Melt chocolate for 30 seconds in microwave. Stir. Continue to melt in microwave for 15 second intervals, stirring in between each interval.
