It was teacher appreciation week at one of our schools this week. We got a letter home asking us to bring in something homemade by the child for each teacher. I felt the teachers probably get enough pictures, so why not give them something they can eat and easily made by the child, chocolate covered pretzels.
These are easily adapted for several different occasions. The technique is the same just use different color chocolates and sprinkles or candies.
Today we used Vanilla and Chocolate Bark because we already had them on hand. You can use chocolate chips or chocolate discs in an abundant of colors.
Simply microwave desired amount of chocolate in a ramakin or glass dish per the package directions. Be sure to check the chocolate often as it can burn easily.
Allow the children to spread the chocolate over bottom 1/2 of pretzel and place onto parchment paper.
They can then decorate them with sprinkles or any type of mini or cut up candies.
Depending on the temperature in you house you can either keep them out to set or place them in the refrigerator for a few minutes.
Once they are dried you can package them in Pretzel treat bags or any long clear treat bag. Two pretzels fit nicely in the pretzel size bag.
I sealed them with a personalized address label. WWW.Avery.com has many templates already made that they can be completed in just minutes. The child could also simply sign their name and add a simple picture on a label for a even more homemade feeling.
These are homemade by the kids but put together with a little extra touch!
In today’s project we found that one bark of chocolate covered 5 pretzels nicely.
