Chocolate Covered Pretzel Favors

We made yummy chocolate covered pretzels as favors for the baby shower and they were a huge hit! Everyone loved them and they were gone so fast. We even had to hide some away. I think there's just something about salty and sweet that's really good. And surprisingly, they're so easy to make. Here's the instructions on how to create these for yourself:
1. Take plain pretzel sticks (we bought ours at a dollar store), chocolate candy melts (which you can buy here or at your local craft store) and a fairly deep bowl. 2. Melt the chocolate in a bowl by putting it in the microwave for about 20 seconds. Mix it up and if it's not completely melted, stick it back into the microwave for another 20 seconds. Keep doing this until it's smooth and runny. 3. Dip the pretzels into the chocolate and coat 3/4 of the way. While doing this, make sure you get a good layer on the pretzel.
4. Then take your topping (it can be sprinkles, chocolate shavings, mini m&m's, coconut, whatever) and sprinkle them onto the chocolate. Make sure you do this before the chocolate dries so that it will stick.
5. Place in a pan for the chocolate to dry completely and you're done!
6. To complete the favor, we bought pretzel stick bags at Michaels and stuck 1 pretzel inside each of the bags. We then tied it with ribbon and printed the tags on circle labels. They turned out so pretty! Now wasn't that easy? Try them out!
