It’s New Years Eve.
Let’s say, that in all the overwhelming chaos that was Christmas, you forgot that you have a New Years party to attend. And you’re supposed to bring a dish. And you forgot to go shopping.
Here is a simple dessert that you can prepare in a bout 20 minutes.
Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Rods.
Sounds fancy? Maybe. But you only need 3 ingredients (4 if you add sprinkles), I think you can handle it!
Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Rods
1 bag of Kraft Caramel Bits
2 tbsp water
Chocolate candy coating (I used CandiQuick White Chocolate, it re-heats well)
*Put caramel bits in a microwave safe bowl with 2 tbsp water. Microwave on high for 1minute 30 seconds.
*Stir. Let cool for a couple minutes.
*Dip pretzel rods, one at a time in melted caramel and set on a parchment lined baking sheet.
*Pop them in the fridge for about 5 minutes
*melt your tray of candiquick according to the package (you can also use a microwave safe bowl and Wilton candy melts)
*Dip you caramel pretzel rods in the candy coating, letting the excess drip off, and cover with sprinkles.
My kids enjoyed the sprinkles:
*pop the pretzel rods back in the fridge for another 5 minutes and your done!
