  • 2 packs of pretzel rods
  • 250 g milk chocolate
  • 250 g white candy melts or white chocolate
  • 4 packs of festive sprinkles


  • Firstly, lay all the sprinkles flat onto separate plates and lay a large sheet of baking paper onto a flat surface.
  • Break the milk chocolate up into small pieces and place into a heat-proof bowl. Then put the bowl over a pan of simmering water, stirring every now and then until the chocolate is melted. Remove the bowl from the heat and individually dip half of the pretzel rods into the chocolate, then roll in the sprinkles to completely coat. Place onto the baking paper to set and repeat until all of the milk chocolate is used.
  • Then, place the white candy melts into a heat-proof bowl and melt like the milk chocolate. Dip the remaining pretzel rods into the candy melts and roll in the sprinkles to completely coat. Then place onto the baking paper to set.
  • Leave the pretzel rods to set for 30 minutes, before keeping in an air-tight container or wrapping in twine and placing in treat bags to gift.


Any flavour chocolate, any colour candy melts and any kind of sprinkles can be used - the recipe is more of a guideline!
