This is an easy snack to have on the table - open house visitors can walk around eating them.
2 bags chocolate chips (dark or milk chocolate)
1 bag pretzels - I think Logs work the best for this, but you can use medium or thick twists
Chopped nuts, optional
Colored nonpareils, optional
Crushed cookies, optional
Melt chocolate in double boiler over medium heat on stove top. Using tongs, quickly dip pretzels in chocolate allowing the excess to run off. Place dipped pretzels on waxed paper lined cookie sheets. Sprinkle with chopped nuts, colored sugars or other toppings. Allow to harden thoroughly. You can put them in the refrigerator to help them harden. Once hardened, remove from sheets and store in a cool location, with waxed paper between layers.
These are also cute to finish off cookie trays.
