Spring is just around the corner and before you know it you will be enjoying summer barbeques and spring parties, so what better way to celebrate then whipping up a batch of these super fun spring pretzels.
Spring Pretzel Rods
- Pretzel rods
- White candy melts, white chocolate morsels, or vanilla almond bark
- Lavender candy melts
- Blue candy melts
- Bright pink candy melts
- Yellow candy melts
- Assorted sprinkles and sanding sugars such as:
- Pink pearlized nonpareils
- Purple pearlized nonpareils
- Blue pearlized jimmies
- Mixed pearlized jimmies
- Yellow sprinkling sugar
- Bird sprinkles
- Butterfly sprinkles
- Flower sprinkles
- Melt the candy coating according to package directions giving special care not to overheat the candy. If the candy coating is overheated, it will be too thick. You can add 2 teaspoons of vegetable shortening or coconut oil to help thin the candy but do not add any other type of liquid as the candy will seize and harden.
- Pour candy coating over two-thirds of the pretzel rod and shake gently to remove excess. If applying sprinkles, do so immediately rotating the pretzel rods to coat all sides. Larger sprinkles work best if placed individually.
- Place pretzel rod on waxed paper or cooling rack. (Cook’s notes: Waxed paper makes for easier release.)
- If drizzling with additional colored candy melts, allow initial candy coating to set completely. Then, use a spoon or fork to drizzle candy coating over the pretzel rods. Before the pretzel sets, gently pick it up and move to clean wax paper.
- Let pretzel rods dry completely before packaging or serving.
Store in an airtight container at room temperature. Placing in the refrigerator may cause the pretzel to soften.
