Yummy Treat for Entertaining or Teacher Gifts

Inexpensive Gifts for Teachers

I find myself this Christmas season with very little time, or money to do anything!  But one thing I do not want to skimp on, is giving our children’s teachers a little treat for the holiday.

I was watching a show on MomTV featuring Maria Bailey, and she reminded me of a easy, inexpensive treat that is perfect for entertaining, gifts, or party favors!  I will probably add some pretzel stick with chocolate and nuts, sine I got some nuts on sale last week.

Chocolate Sprinkled Pretzel Sticks


  • Thick Pretzel Sticks (1.5 bag)
  • One bag of SemiSweet Chocolate Chips, or Chocolate Candy Coating
  • Large Container of Colored Sprinkles, or crushed nuts
  1. Melt the chocolate in a microwavable bowl, or a double boiler. Melt in microwave for 40 second intervals on 50% power until melted. I thought it would be better to use a tall mug like this one, but I ditched it for a shallow bowl.

  1. Dip the Pretzel Sticks halfway in the chocolate, then roll in sprinkles or nuts.
  2. Set out on Parchment Paper on a cookie sheet, then place in freezer for 5 minutes

  1. Serve on a festive platter, or package in candy bags with ribbons.

And there you have it! An incredible treat in a jiffy! What are some treats that you like to prepare for the holiday season!

PS.  Robin has a different take on candy-dipped pretzels, and she warns that they are highly addictive!

  1. I was thinking about making these for the first time this year. It's helpful to know that a shallow dish is better than a cup; a cup would have been my instinct too.


  2. These are so easy to make, I’m going to bring them to a NYE party I have this year. thanks for sharing!
