  1. 1.Place wax or parchment paper on two rimmed cookie sheets. Have your sprinkles ready to go in separate bowls.

    2.Start with the white chocolate.. In a microwave safe deep bowl or glass measuring cup, melt candy melts or almond bark according to package directions.

    3.Take one pretzel at a time and dip into melted chocolate. You may want to use a teaspoon or plastic spoon to help coat the pretzel. Gently shake off excess chocolate.

    4.Using a spoon, coat the chocolate with the sprinkles before it hardens. Add any other decorations at this time too.

    5.Place each coated pretzel on lined cookie sheet. When all are done, place in fridge for about 15 minutes. Take out and wrap up for gifts or for you and your loved ones. Repeat with the chocolate chips. Enjoy!
