Those interested in filling Easter Baskets with Homemade Items may want to consider this tasty Recipe. Children will enjoy helping you make these Chocolate Covered Pretzels any time of the year, This is also a good way to use up left over sprinkles from Christmas Baking.

Hazelnut Chocolate Covered Pretzels*
*OR if you prefer you can use the Chocolate Bar of your choice adding in your own crushed and ground Hazelnuts or the nut of your choice. Can be made without nuts, with sprinkles or other candies substituted.   Melted peanut butter, caramel or marshmallow cream can be drizzled over them for those who are adventurous. A half of a cup of Crunchy Peanut Butter can be added for every 3 Bars of plain Chocolate.

Melt Chocolate Bars in double boiler or with a homemade double boiler or a heavy botton pot with a diffuser stirring frequently.  If using a diffuser, after the chocolate is melted, you must keep it melted by placing the sauce pot in hot water.  Do not allow hot water to overflow into the pot!

Using appetizer tongs, dip pretzels into melted chocolate then place on wax paper to dry.  Sprinkle with additional nuts or fun topping of choice if desired.  If in a hurry, place wax paper on a platter and place in freezer or refrigerator.

This makes a great Gift Idea for any time of the year.  I especially enjoy making them to give to our Neighbors during the Christmas and New Year Holiday Season.
