Chocolate Christmas Sticks

I wrap these with my Christmas baskets of goodies for friends and neighbors. It's quick and inexpensive and brings lots of smiles of thanks! Plus my Grandchildren all benefit the goodies from Grammy's Kitchen.

How to Make Chocolate Christmas Sticks


  • 1Place chocolate in microwave safe 1c. measuring cup or mug. Cover with wax paper nuke for 1-2 minutes or until almost melted, stirring until smooth.
  • 2Meanwhile, place your toppings of choice on wax paper, separate sheets, or plates.
  • 3Holding one pretzel rod at a time, dip in melted chocolate, tipping cup to cover about 1/2 of the rod. Allow excess to drip off into cup. Immediately sprinkle with topping choices, carefully place rod in a pie plate or shallow bowl. Lean uncoated portion on edge.
