Sugar Aunts: Easy Bite Sized Chocolate Dipped Pretzels
My kids love to cook.  They come running when I say it's time to help me cook. When melted chocolate is involved, they come running just a little faster.  Who am I kidding?  They come running at full speed when chocolate is involved.  

We made these easy chocolate dipped mini pretzels one day when I had a niece and nephew over for the day.  (I'm totally going for the Best Aunt award, here. Chocolate covered pretzels?  I've got this!) 

Sometimes, it's nice to have a little treat, but a mom wants to keep the sugar intake on the low side. We made these mini pretzel rods for a bite size chocolate-y treat that would be perfect for parties or special events.

This recipe is easy enough to make with kids without a huge mess.  Melt the chocolate melts over the stove top.  This is a job for an adult or an older child.

Using a spoon, drag the melted chocolate over the mini pretzel rods.  Place them on a sheet of wax paper.  For easy, use a lipped tray like a jelly roll pan.  This will contain the mess and keep sprinkles and toppings from rolling on the floor.

Pour sprinkles into small rubbermaid containers.  This is a great way to incorporate fine motor skills into the cooking process.  Kids can pinch or scoop the coverings on the melted chocolate.

HINT:  Use larger containers for dumping sprinkles over the pretzel rods.  We also used halves of the mini pretzels for an even smaller treat.  These pretzel bites were perfect for a small snack!
