sticky dippy: chocolate marshmallow pretzel rods

Sure we all love to dip pretzel sticks in chocolate so I upped the ante by adding marshmallow! I had planned to add some caramel as well but I got the order of melting mixed up so grab some chocolate, some marshmallows, and some pretzel sticks and get to dipping! Oh...don't forget the sprinkles! 
Your kiddos can get in on the action by opening and measuring out the pretzels, chocolates and marshmallows (minis work best). For ten dipped sticks you will need one cup of chocolate chips and 2 cups of marshmallows. Melt marshmallows in a microwave proof container (a pyrex measuring cup works dandy) for 10-30 seconds. Keep an eye on it as those marshmallows puff up like crazy! 
 The best way to get the marshmallows onto the pretzel sticks is to dip and twist. Place your sticks on wax paper. I used parchment and they stucy-stuck. The smaller your container, the deeper the dip.
 Melt chocolate chips in 20 second intervals, stirring in between until smooth. Dip away, place on wax paper and add sprinkles!

  1. Oooh those look great! I used to make them with caramel and chocolate and then roll them in chopped pecans.
