Dipped Pretzels – Superbowl Style

So I whipped up a last-minute Superbowl Party treat since we are going to be dropping by to see some friends today before the game.  (With a 6:30 kickoff and a baby, we’ll be heading back home for the game, but at least we’ll get a little tailgating in!)  I thought we could use a little something sweet to offset all the chips and dips and cheese…

I got inspired by Mrs. Fox’s Sweets’ Valentine Pretzels, because they look SO pretty. :)  I modified it to a red-and-blue theme (this year it’s easy, because the Patriots and the Giants really have the same team colors).  I was able to make up a batch of dipped pretzels in about 30 minutes!

What you’ll need:

  • Dipping chocolate (I used 1/2 package of Candiquik)
  • Pretzel Rods
  • Sprinkles
  • Wax paper to dry them
  • Microwave-safe container

I had half a package of Candiquik in the cupboard.  So I melted that up (be sure to use a microwave-safe container that is deep enough to allow dipping most of the way up the pretzel rod.

I don’t have a photo of the dipping, since it’s a two-handed job, but I’ll give you my tips.  It’s really easy, I promise. ;)

I tilted my cup, stuck the pretzel in and twirled it around until it was coated.  The toughest part is getting the excess drips off – I found that just sort of wiping the bottom of the pretzel against the side of the cup removed a lot of excess.  You’ll have a definite “bottom” side, since you’ll have to lay it out to dry, so just make that your bottom side.

Then I held it over the sink and added sprinkles.  Then I plopped it on the wax paper.  If you get any puddles, move your pretzel away from that spot:

Otherwise, it will be bumpy when it dries.  1/2 package of Candiquik did all but three pretzels.

Then, just leave them to set:

And that’s it, they’re ready to share!!

We’re rooting for the Giants today, since that’s the younger Manning (my husband is a huge fan of Peyton and the Colts – and encouraging Raya to be a fan too).

Have a great football Sunday!  And if you need any last-minute food ideas, check out my football dip recipe – it’s a game day staple at our house. :)

    Where do you find the Candiquik melty stuff? I've never looked for it before. I've only ever seen baking chocolate, but maybe I'm looking in the wrong place. These look so good. I did see them on Mrs. Fox's site before and want to make them. Yours turned out great and cool idea to match to the team colours.
