25 Days of Christmas, Day 15: Chocolate Covered Pretzels

My womans' club Christmas party is tonight. As a member of the planning committee for this blessed event, I have been assigned to decorate a table, to provide background music in the form of a holiday playlist on my iPod and to accompany my fellow committee members in a holiday rap. Yes, a holiday rap, not to be confused with holiday wrap which, reminds me; I need to buy some more wrapping paper and, I digress.., yes, my fellow Altrusans and I will be doing a rap version of some favorite Christmas carols or something like that, I'm not really sure; I missed rehearsal because I had a prior commitment, basically, I'll be winging it.

Also, I'll be wearing a Santa hat and dark sunglasses, making this the most surreal Christmas party of all time.

A party is a party, though and; I have no doubt that I will have a good time. If I don't, I can always come home and eat these pretzels; they are like a party for the mouth. No rapping required.

Chocolate Covered Pretzels

1 pkg pretzels (I usually use regular pretzels however, every bag that I looked at this year was jam-packed with broken pretzels so; I went with minis. Your call)
1 pkg. chocolate almond bark
1 pkg. white chocolate almond bark (find both in the baking aisle)

Melt almond bark according to package directions (one flavor at a time, obviously). Using a small fork, dip pretzels into coating, allowing excess to drip back into bowl. Allow to cool on waxed paper, decorate with additional melted almond bark, Candy Melts or sprinkles. Store in airtight container or freeze until ready to use.

  1. The thing with the pretzels is that I will get half way into the job, and I am just over the whole thing and want to quit. So if you could write an entire post about where to find the focus, want-to, desire to do all these recipes and ideas, I would greatly appreciate it!!!!!! ;)
