New Year’s Eve pretzel rods are fun to make while adding pretty color to a charcuterie board. These white chocolate dipped pretzels are great for snack boards alike.
Pretzel rods are so easy to decorate and display for the holidays. These New Year’s Eve pretzels are perfect for charcuterie boards or even displaying in a mason jar with ribbon.
For the pretzel recipe a few microwave safe bowls are needed. No need for a melting pot. A melting pot can be used if you feel like it works better for you. I just use a microwave.
Melt the Ghirardelli’s white chocolate melting wafers in a microwave safe bowl. Use the directions on the package to melt them at 50 percent power or use defrost mode.
Secondly, prep the area with parchment paper. Get the sprinkles and edible gold glitter ready. Use a spoon to scoop white chocolate over the pretzel.
Dipping The Pretzels
Do this while rotating the pretzel until the tip is covered. Tap lightly against the plastic bowl to get excess white chocolate off the pretzel. Place on parchment paper.
Decorate the pretzels while the chocolate is still hot and wet. Once dry nothing will stick. Drizzle with gold edible glitter and star sprinkles.
Melt the black candy melts and drizzle with a knife over the dried white chocolate pretzel rods. Let all of the pretzel rods dry before serving.
Make Pretzels Same Day
The decorated pretzels are best made the same day. Pretzel rods don’t take long at all to make and to keep the freshness of the pretzel then it’s best to eat them the same day.
These pretzels can be dipped in so many colors. Make for Valentine’s Day, Mardi Gras, St. Patrick’s Day and even Easter pretzel rods. So many ways to switch the sticks up for holidays or parties.
Make a New Year’s Eve charcuterie board with the New Year’s Eve pretzel rods added in. Add some gold Rolo candies along with silver Hershey’s kisses for some color to a fun board.
