  • 1 cup white chocolate chips (can also milk chocolate chips or semi-sweet chocolate chips)
  • 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 16 pretzel rods
  • ¼ cup sprinkles optional


  • Line a large baking sheet with wax paper.
  • Place 1 cup chips and vegetable oil in small microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 45 seconds;stir. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted and smooth.
  • Pour melted chocolate into a tall drinking glass (this is optional, but we found that it made dipping the rods so much easier for kids!).
  • Dip pretzel rods about 3 inches into melted chocolate. Use side of glass to remove excess. If desired, sprinkle with sprinkles and place on prepared baking sheet. Let pretzels cool until chocolate is set. Store in airtight container at room temperature.
