  20. I can’t wait to make those! I have most of the ingredients but I love the different coatings you used! Great job! :)

  21. dorothy

    wow these look so original and delish!!

  22. Darcie

    These look wonderful….I was contipalting making these for our church bazar adn was wondering how much you sold them for? Was it worth it?

  23. Darcie- Thank you! We sold these in bags of 3 for $2.50. My cost/3 including packaging was $1.25 BUT I donated the pretzels so the church received 100% of the sales. If I hadn’t donated them the profit would not have been much as I used premium chocolate (Ghirardelli, etc) and higher cost toppings such as walnuts. However, if you used cheaper supplies I am sure it would be even more profitable.

    I will also add that while I only made about 50 bags they sold quite quickly! Good luck and let me know how it turns out!

      I am hoping you can help me. Which chocolate to use–dark, semi sweet etc? Which is the usual one? I made these for my son last year as he is deployed. He loved them and request again. However I lost the recipe. I am a bit desperate HELP

  24. mary ann

    wow! those look great.
    i tried to make some earlier and used the round choc. candy that they sell in the craft stores but, what a mess. the choc. was too thick. any sugestions how to make the choc. thinner for dipping?
    next time i will try the choc. chips.
    thanks

  25. mary ann- Thanks! You can try adding some oil or shortening to thin it out a bit, although I have never tried it before. Good luck!

  26. OK! I just finished making these and am thrilled. I’m bringing them to a party tonight- thank you so much! I will post pictures on my blog next time I get a post up :)

  27. I’ll be making these! so excited, I bought white chocolate chips!

  28. Simone Duka-Smith

    I just made these using the smaller twisty pretzel rods because my Safeway didn’t have any of the longer ones, but the shorter ones still worked great. I dipped them in the dark chocolate then rolled some of them in milk chocolate chips and the others in the crushed peppermint. Amazing!! And my friends all love me just a little bit more now! =P

  29. so, what you’re telling me is that these are pure evil? seriously though, they look AH-mazing! so fun and easy to put together with friends and family too!

  30. I need to keep my focus and look at the more healthy recipes! ;)

  31. Anna

    Great job!
    I’m having a bake sale …..and so am wondering….. how much did you sell each one for?

    thank you for your reply

  32. Anna

    Great job! and thank you for sharing…
    I was wondering ….how much did you sell each pretzel rod for?
    im having a bake sale in a week and was planning to sell
    this item….. thank you

    • RhodeyGirlTests

      @Anna, I believe we started at $5 for a bag of 3 and most of them sold. We then brought the price down to $3 and then $2 to sell the last few bags! Good luck at your sale!

  33. Oh my gosh those look amazing! I would be ALL OVER them if they were sold at a bake sale here. Now I want to roadtrip my way over to you to make and eat chocolate covered pretzel rods :D

  34. OMG…these look awesome…found your blog post today when I was looking for Witches Sticks for halloween chocolate covered pretzels. I’d love to make these for Christmas for all my friends and family…thanks for sharing. Fondly, Roberta

  35. ohmeg9

    These are great! We did a test run using your steps and it’s the best! We’re going to make them for the hotel bags at my upcoming wedding. But…where did you get the bags? I can’t seem to find any. Any help is gratefully appreciated!!

  36. Bev

    Can you tell me how far in advance you can make them? Wil they still be fresh if made 4 days ahead of time?

  37. JIll Baker

    I am baking things for a charity event for a friend of mine who is in his early 40′s that has incurable cancer. I have made these before for my daughter and her roommates at college but have never sold them. I would love to sale some at the benefit. Do you mind telling me how much you sold these for. You did a great job. Thank you so much.

    I so wish I could figure out to to make this work. I’ve tried several times and nothing sticks onto the pretzels! I bought some Log House brand Candiquick – candy coating since I’ve used it before to dip oreos and it’s easy to work with. Nothing would stick on my prezel rods. Everything just slid off. BIG MESS! I tried so many things…I let most drip off, let less drip off, tried to let harden a bit, sit in refrig to start to harden and then try to roll in toppings, also tried to just sprinkle toppings while laying on cookie sheet since I was willing to take only having topping on one side as better than none but to no success. I eneded up with plain dipped rods – flat on one side from laying them on the cookie sheet. Not at all pretty or having coating all around like yours. The flat side didn’t even have choc covering as you could see the pretzel showing through on the flat sides. Any ideas that could help me out? Thank you

    • RhodeyGirlTests

      @Cathy, Hi Cathy. The only thing I can think of is that the type of pretzels you were using were too smooth and slippery? I wish I had more advice, but I never dealt with that issue before. I have asked around for 2 weeks now and none of my friends have any idea either. Sorry I can’t be of more assistance!

      • Cathy

        Thanks for trying to look into it. It’s so odd that the coating just would not stay on the rods and then trying to dip with the weight of the chips and nuts…everything just slid off.. I was using lg rods – kinda look like the old school 1st grade fat pencils. They had corse salt on them. I feel like such an idiot that this will not work out for me. I consider myself an excellent baker and even make birthday and wedding cakes for friends. I should have been able to do this.The kids were so disappointed. I am going to try it again.

  39. anna

    thank you so much for this idea! i was searching for a new creative way to “spice” up the plain covered pretzel when i found this and i can promise you .. every one who gets them for christmas this year will be impressed! thanks again!

  40. Jana Schroeder

    Thanks for all the great pictures and ideas! Once these are made, how does one properly store them? Would just an air-tight container work with wax paper between layers? Can they be put in the freezer for a short time? Thanks! Jana Schroeder

    • RhodeyGirlTests

      @Jana Schroeder, I usually put them in an airtight container with wax paper once the chocolate has fully firmed up. I have never frozen them, although I have kept them in an airtight container for a few days. They don’t last long around here!

  41. Hello, Neat post. There is a problem with your web site in web explorer, might check this?

    IE still is the marketplace leader and a big portion of folks will pass over your fantastic writing due
    to this problem.

  42. Megan

    They look really good! You did a great job!

  43. martha a miller

    Have ben making chocolate covered pretzels for about 4 years, grandkids favorite treat to take to school for their BD treat. I dip and they get to do the sprinkles. LOVE the way explained how to crush the candy, cookies finely chopped nuts. We print out small stickers that say “Birthday treat from (child’s name). Yours were done up in bags just like I use.
    Best wishes
