dipped pretzels

Ingredients & Supplies

  • Double boiler or microwaveable bowl
  • Almond Bark
  • Vegetable oil
  • Bag of salted pretzels
  • Pink and red sprinkles
  • Parchment paper


Break the almond bark into pieces and melt in a double boiler or microwavable bowl. Stir until smooth and dipp-able. You may need to add a teaspoon or two of vegetable oil to get it really smooth. Carefully dip half of each pretzels into the almond bark and lay on the parchment paper to cool. Shake sprinkles onto almond bark half as soon as possible, before it cools.

Allow to cool for 1-2 hours before removing from parchment paper and serving or packaging.

It goes without saying that the melted almond bark is very hot. Be sure to have a “be careful around hot things” talk with your kids before you begin this project if they’re going to be involved in the dipping!
