Chocolate Covered Pretzels

My sisters and I are throwing a baby shower for the upcoming birth of our new nephew. The theme is Diapers and Desserts! What to make for my dessert...chocolate covered pretzels! It was so simple and I love the sweet and salty combination. This is what you need...

semisweet chocolate chips
white chocolate chips
pretzel rods
plastic baggie
aluminum foil
microwave safe bowl
food coloring
Before you get started cover a cookie sheet in aluminum foil. 
Pour your chips in a microwave safe bowl. I split my chips in half...half white and half will be blue.

Add a little crisco, about a table spoon for 12 oz of chips. If you split it in half like I did you will just use a half of a tablespoon.

Put it in the microwave for about a minute, then stir. If need be, put it in the microwave for another minute.
 I added food coloring...
 Then the other half for the pretzels. I transferred the chocolate in a tall glass to help with the dipping process. After you dip place them on the covered cookie sheet.

If you are going to put sprinkles on them do it right after you dip them. I waited a little too long and they didn't stick as well as I would have liked.
Next, place them in the refrigerator. After the chocolate hardens you are ready to drizzle the colored chocolate.
 I placed my blue chocolate in a baggie and snipped the tiniest hole in the bottom corner.
 Then I drizzled...
Place them back into the refrigerator until you are ready to serve! 

I displayed them in some lowball cocktail glasses. To spruce up the glasses I wrapped them with some blue polka dot ribbon.
