Chocolate Covered Pretzels

Here is my trick to chocolate covered pretzels! Cost about $6.00
2 bags of Wilton Candy Melts. $2.50 a bag at walmart (can use 1 bag if you only use half a bag of pretzels)
1 bag of Pretzels $1-$3 a bag

Melt chocolate in microwave safe bowl. Melt for 30 seconds, stir, and repeat until smooth.
 Dump 3/4 of the bag of pretzels in the chocolate. Stir with spatula until nicely covered.

 If you have remaining chocolate in the bowl add more pretzels. When most of the chocolate is on the pretzels then you can dump the whole bowl onto a sheet of wax paper. Separate the pretzels on the paper, I line them up, I was in a hurry when I made these so they aren't as lined up as they normally are :)

 I was out of wax paper so I used freezer paper.  Another variation to this is to add some peanut butter during the melting process and you have some chocolatey peanutbutter pretzels, they are delicious as well. I just made a batch of them this weekend for my sons wrestling banquet, they were devoured so quickly I didn't get a picture of them.

Another Variation: After the chocolate has dried take a decorating bag, fill with white chocolate or colored wilton candy melts and melt in the microwave for 20 seconds, flip and repeat until the melts are melted. Cut a small hole in the tip of the decorating bag and zig zag across the pretzels. I have done orange and black for halloween, green and red for christmas, pink and white for valentines, red, blue and white for the 4th of July. The possibilities are endless... :) enjoy!
