Side Note: Today is my 50th post! Thanks for all of your support of Partyliss!
For those of you who don't know me, I love to bake and make sweets. I am going to start bringing some fun food options on We Do Wednesday, so we will start today with sprinkled pretzel rods! A cute, easy snack that, when packaged and labeled, is an awesome favor for any type of party. Just coordinate the sprinkles and chocolate melts for your event and guests probably won't believe you made them (and will love their snack on the ride home!)
Above you'll see almost everything I used (just add more sprinkles!). While the tall dipping containers (top right) were an unnecessary expense, they were a dollar and change and worth being able to throw out at the end!
Chocolates in the container, ready for melting (in the microwave- can't get easier than that!)
Terrible picture but just to show how I dipped and swirled the rods to get even chocolate coverage.
I first tried Nerds...and that as you can tell worked out wonderfully (NOT). I think the candy was too heavy for the chocolate, so warning, stick with light weighing sprinkles!
After swirling, I sprinkled sprinkles (heehee!)
Just keep swirling...
If you notice any sparse areas, sprinkle some more on the direct spots or use your hands to place the sprinkles on the bare area.
I found some scrap styrofoam from our floating monogram, which was a perfect drying rack. As you can see, I used a few different kind of sprinkles (and the special ones with Nerds of course!)
While those were drying, I printed some of my logos on some card stock and used my handy paper cutter to cut them out.
Then with the help of some scrapbook scissors, I made some cute labels. I bagged the pretzels in their special bags (see 1st picture), laced the label on some spare raffia and tied it all up...
I used a few different sprinkles, but the 2 varieties below were my favorite-- I love how bright and cheerful they are!
Sorry couldn't get enough! The colors!
Again, another easy project that looks like you got from a store! I just can't get enough :)
