Chocolate Dipped Pretzels

Last summer I was flipping through an old magazine at my aunts house and I came across a picture of chocolate covered pretzels. I couldn't believe that of all the baking/cooking/random stuff in the kitchen that I do, I never thought to make chocolate covered pretzels. I mean really, who doesn't love something dipped in chocolate?

Ingredients: 
    • 10 oz. package pretzel rods
    • 8 oz. milk chocolate
    • sprinkles for decorating

Directions:
1. In a double boiler, melt the chocolate stirring frequently.
2. Once the chocolate has melted, roll one end of the pretzel in the chocolate. I had to tilt the pan and use a wooden spoon to scoop some of the chocolate on the pretzel because of how long it was.
3. Shake different types of sprinkles over the chocolate.
4. Place the pretzels in a shallow dish making sure that they aren't touching. Refrigerate the pretzels for 20-30 minutes or until the chocolate has hardened.
5. To store, layer the pretzels in an air-tight container between layers of wax paper. The pretzels will be good for 1 week.

The only thing I can say thats slightly bad about these pretzels is that the chocolate lightens in color once it cools so it doesn't have that rich brown color as it does when its first dipped.
