Ocean Themed Dipped Pretzel Rods
These are probably the easiest dessert treats that you’ll ever make. All you need are 5 simple ingredients to get started. And once you make and decorate your very first one, you’re going to want to keep going with that trend.
Gather up all the simple ingredients below and let’s get to it!
As you can see from the picture below, one of the key steps to this recipe is to make certain that you’re melting the chocolate wafers in a way that they don’t get burnt.
If you do happen to burn it, you’re going to need to add in 2 tablespoons of coconut oil to get it to then in. (Burning it just means that it gets super thick so you have to thin when that happens.)
Also, keep in mind that making these pretzel rods can tend to get a little bit messy. I highly recommend to have them on a wire rack or wax paper when you’re letting them dry so it’s just less for you or someone else to have to clean up later.
How difficult are these ocean-themed pretzel rods to make?
This is what makes this dessert so awesome. These pretzel rods are so simple to make. It’s actually a great recipe to make with younger children because they can literally do the steps (with supervision) from start to finish.
We’ve made these for all different types of holidays and times of the years and they’re always a huge hit. The kids love making them and they’re overall just a ton of fun!
Make certain that once they are made, store in an airtight container at room temperature. (Putting them in the fridge will cause them to soften)
If you don’t keep them in an airtight container, the air will make them soft, too. The key is to keep out the air!
You’re going to love the ease of these pretzel desserts. So simple and perfect for a wide variety of ages! Have them really work on their own dipping skills so that they can easily create these pretzel rods themselves. They’re such a great treat and so fast and easy for the kids to do!
Make it a family fun cooking event and spend time with one another! Cooking in the kitchen creates amazing family memories!
