We celebrated a big birthday this week! My daughter turned 4! Wow! My baby is fast on her way to becoming a little lady! We threw a "big" party for her this year and invited about 10 friends over for a pool party. We decided to dip pretzels for favors. I'll tell you about our experience -- maybe you've been wanting to try these for yourself, too!
I bought two bags - about 50 pretzels. I wanted to give at least one per child and mom, plus extra to send home to siblings and dads. :-) First I dipped the pretzels in dark chocolate, then layed on wax paper to firm up. Then I dipped them in white chocolate - working fast so as to not "remelt" the dark chocolate underneath.
Right after the dip in the white chocolate my daughter and I sprinkled them with assorted pink and purple sprinkles on all sides. I also did a few in pink with sprinkles - remember to have the color paste and not liquid color or the white chocolate will seize up.
I found perfectly sized cellophane bags at Michael's that were specifically made for pretzels! So, I guess a lot of people are doing these now! I tied them with pink curly ribbon ...and added a little custom "A" tag in honor of the birthday girl. :-)
