White Chocolate Peppermint Dipped Pretzels

makes about 50

  • 1lb. white chocolate
  • 50 pretzel rods (about two bags worth)
  • 9 candy canes

Unwrap candy canes and place in a plastic sandwich bag. Bash with a mallet until candy canes are broken into very small shards. Place on a plate and set aside.

Roughly chop white chocolate with a serrated knife and place into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 40-50 secs on high power. Stir and microwave for another minute, or until white chocolate is thoroughly melted. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside. Dip each pretzel rod into the white chocolate and coat half way up the rod. Use a fork to help coat the pretzel. Let excess chocolate drip off and lightly roll pretzel in the candy canes. Place candy coated dipped pretzels onto the parchment sheet and let cool.

If you want to speed up the setting time, place the dipped pretzels in the freezer for 5 minutes. You can package them right away!
