3 Ingredient Firecracker Pretzel Rods

 Look how festive and cool these 3 ingredient firecracker pretzel rods look. They were so much fun to make with the kids and oh boy, they taste yummy. Make some and enjoy!

We love sweet and salty desserts in my home.

My husband especially loves anything that’s chocolate with a salty bite.

These pretzel rods sure hit the bill with  him.

I happen to use a good quality white chocolate this time around but, you can use any white melting chocolate that’s your favorite or one you can find on sale. Just make sure it’s especially for melting and dipping.

I will highlight the products I used for this recipe and give you other options that you can pick up in  your local craft stores or online like I did. 

The great thing about these pretzel rods are they are so versatile.

Change around the colors of the sprinkles for any or no occasion.

Add some nuts, shredded coconut, or some mini M&Ms. Now that’s really yummy in my book!

My son named these because he said the sprinkles reminded him of fireworks and firecrackers. You can call them what you think fits.

Any name and  anyway you make these is the right way.

By the way, these make great party favors and gifts. The melting chocolate holds its shape and they don’t have to be refrigerated.

Have a good time making these, we always get chocolate all over the place, that’s half the fun!
