Chocolate-dipped pretzel rods

Preparation time: 20 minutes
Chilling time: 5 minutes

Chocolate-dipped pretzel rods

6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
12 7-inch pretzel rods
5 teaspoons red and green (or multicolored) sprinkles

Place chocolate chips in a large saucepan over low heat and stir frequently until melted and smooth; heat carefully to avoid scorching the chocolate. Remove saucepan from heat.

Hold one pretzel at a time over the melted chocolate and spoon chocolate over pretzel, coating all except 2 inches at one end; use the back of the spoon to spread the chocolate evenly. (Rewarm chocolate over low heat as needed.) Lightly sprinkle each pretzel rod with sprinkles.

Carefully place coated pretzels in a pie plate, propping the uncoated end against the edge of the pie plate. Chill coated pretzels in the freezer for 5 minutes, or until chocolate is set. Carefully remove from the pie plate and store in an airtight container at room temperature.
