Ingredients for St. Patrick's Day Snack Pretzels
Pretzels – of course, they are the star of this show. I prefer pretzel rods as they are easy to dip, but you can use regular pretzels too.
Candy Wafers – These are the easiest to use for this recipe, but you can also use white chocolate chips too.
Sprinkles– All good things come with sprinkles, right? Any combination of green sprinkles will work for a festive St. Patrick's day theme.
They are super quick to make and will be ready to eat in minutes. They just need a little time to set.
Variations and Substitutions
Like I mentioned above, you can use melted white chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate chips for this recipe. If that is what you have on hand, I would use them. Just melt the chocolate in the microwave at 30-second intervals until melted. You will need to work with the chocolate relatively quickly before it hardens, so just know this. If it starts to harden before you are done, just pop the chocolate chips in the microwave for 15-20 seconds.
If using small pretzels, set on a wire rack so that they can set.
This St. Patrick's Day Dessert and it also makes a fun food gift or party favor. You can put these in treat bags tied with ribbon to make someone's day!
