Hi, my name is David Levine. I own Illinois Nut and Candy. We're online at Today, we're going to be making chocolate covered pretzel rods, great treats for the holidays. You can make them with your children, before your holiday dinner and they're great for place cards, they're great to have as decoration on the table. Making chocolate covered pretzel rods is really quite easy. The first most important part of it is making sure you have tempered chocolate. You could either have a tempering machine like I do which most people do not have in their home kitchens or you could have a double boiler. If you don't own a double boiler, simply make your own double boiler. Take two of your pots, fill one with water, put chocolate in the other one and the most important thing to do while you're doing this is stir consistently. Tempered chocolate is what makes the chocolate have its pretty shine. So what you do is make sure you start off with a bag of fresh pretzels. It makes all the difference. What you're going to do is you're going to buy holiday sprinkles, an assortment of holiday Christmas sprinkles. You can get them on line at many different places including our website. What you do is you take the chocolate pretzel, you dip it in the chocolate, you make sure that you let all the excess chocolate drip off, you put it on a cookie tray that's already been covered with seeds. You could do a few at a time, once again, let the excess drip off, put it on the tray. Then what you do is simply take the extra sprinkles that are in the pan and cover the pretzel rods until they're completely coated with your holiday assortment of seeds. What you then will do is you'll take the tray, put them in a cold box and/or if you don't have a cold box or a refrigerator, and then like you will have over here. You will have your holiday treat for your family. Thank you for watching today, and once again my name is David Levine with Illinois Nut and Candy. We're online at and have a sweet day.
