I’m always looking for easy ways to add a little flair to a party. Whether it’s tissue pom poms or festive cupcakes, I think a little effort into décor and food goes a long way.

Recently, I discovered one of the easiest party foods ever—confetti pretzels. These chocolate-dipped salty-sweet treats look just as good as they taste! And the best part? It’s super simple to customize them to any theme.

For my daughter’s first birthday, I just used multi-colored sprinkles, but there are endless ways to decorate these festive pretzels. Here are a few ideas:

  • Snow pretzels: Dip in white chocolate and cover in tiny white and/or silver sprinkles (the little balls).
  • Valentine pretzels: Tint white chocolate pink and dip in red and white sprinkles.
  • Halloween pretzels: Dip in milk chocolate and coat with orange sprinkles.
  • Christmas pretzels: Dip in white chocolate and cover with red and green sprinkles.
  • Shamrock pretzels: Tint white chocolate green and coat with green shamrock sprinkles.
  • Spring/Easter pretzels: Tint white chocolate different shades of pastel colors. Coat in white sprinkles.

You’ve probably already guessed how these are made, but here are the directions just in case!

Ingredients

  • Pretzel rods
  • White chocolate
  • Sprinkles
  • Oversized martini glass or decorative clear vase

Directions

  1. Melt white chocolate in double boiler.
  2. Dip pretzels in so they are ¾ of the way covered.
  3. Coat immediately in sprinkles (lay sprinkles on wax paper and roll pretzels in them).
