First off I bought those long pretzel rods at the store, then we cut them in half with a serrated knife. Then we dipped them in the caramel. Here is the recipe we used. It's out of the Lion House cookbook. Just cook as directed and but don't pour in to a pan to set. Pour about a fourth of it into a small container with high sides (the high sides make it easier to scrape off any excess) and start dipping. If the caramel becomes to set up to work with just pop in into the microwave for a few seconds.
A trick me and my mom used this time that helped a ton was to line your cookie sheet with tin foil and then spray some cooking spray on it. This helps a ton. Then stick them in the refrigerator to help them set up quicker.
For the chocolate we used Guittard white and milk chocolate chips. I melted then on the stove in a double boiler. Another trick we used was to keep the smaller pan in the pan of hot water while dipping the pretzels. This made the chocolate stay the right consistency for a lot longer. Once again if it hardens up just stick in back on the stove for a little while. (I have done this in the microwave, but it seemed like it burnt the chocolate easier.)
For the drizzles on top we used white chocolate tinted with red food coloring to make it pink and normal milk chocolate since her colors are pink and brown. Take the pretzels out of the fridge about a half our before drizzling the colored chocolate onto them.
We put the melted chocolate in a small ziplock bag. (Don't use the cheap ones, they break really easy with warm chocolate). Then we just snipped off the very tip, and started drizzling. Another hint, we just did one row at a time and then pick up each pretzel a little so that the chocolate would go down the sides.
These are so fun to make. For the wedding dinner we are going to put a few in a bag with some pretty ribbon to tie it shut for the favors. You could do these for just about anything you can think of. It's also fun to put those little sugar sprinkles on them. I think I might do this this year for Christmas for the neighbors.
