Rainbow Pretzel Sticks and a Spoiler

What could be better than chocolate-dipped Rainbow Pretzel Sticks? This #recipe is a big favorite in my house, so we thought we'd share it with you! #party

I think it’s time I just quoted.. myself.. from a Facebook status earlier this week:

“There are photos of 1 niece and 3 nephews in my camera, I felt my second niece kick, and I listened to Tom Petty radio for 8 hours and survived. Let’s call it a win and continue to try to make the world a better place this week and always.”

Amen. To myself. There are so many stories and thoughts swirling around right now. I could write about the “Empty Spaces” of really noticing the absence of so many people I’ve had in my life, and lost. I could write about my sister’s baby shower (sprinkle) and feeling my niece kick, and then meeting my new baby nephew. Or I could write about all of the photos in my camera, but that might just stress me out because I’ll think of all of the clients patiently waiting for their gorgeous photos.

I could write about how we are decorating for Halloween:

Or that I feel the most like this deflated/defeated version of our all-powerful ghost. Isn’t this hilarious?

Basically, I’ll write about all of that in time. I feel like I’m only halfway in right now. I show up to things and I’m fighting my annual cold, and maybe losing. My hair is terrible so I’m wearing a cute hat. I’m working three jobs and afraid to work them all terribly. We don’t have a bed or bedroom or bathroom right now and the renovations are on temporary hold because of hurricanes and lumber, so I feel kinda fuzzy. Overall, my morale is actually good, and I think I need it to be because it’s been a bit challenging lately, hasn’t it? Keep believing in the good stuff, and I will too. I just have to un-fuzz myself first.

I have to rejoin civilization, cute hat or not. Defeated or undefeated, deflated or inflated.

Oh! And for the spoiler, let’s just say this recipe has to do with my costume. Yes, I’m being a giant pretzel. (kidding)

This is one of the kids’ favorite recipes. It’s so simple but it doesn’t always look pretty when they “help.” That doesn’t stop me from letting them, though. Who doesn’t love rainbows and white chocolate and pretzels? I’m all in with this one here:

Rainbow Pretzel Sticks

Ingredients

1 pkg. Pretzel Rods
1 Pkg. each Wilton Chocolate Melts—white, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, pink
Gold Star Sprinkles

Directions

  1. Melt the white chocolate per package directions and dip the pretzel, leaving about 2 inches plain to hold it. Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
  2. Place a few gold stars on the white chocolate where it meets the plain pretzel that you didn’t coat.
  3. Melt each of the other colors of chocolate per package directions in individual bowls.
  4. Start by drizzling the red at the top of the pretzel, and across it, zig zagging back and forth. Come down about an inch or so. (To drizzle, you can either use a spoon or fill a plastic baggie and cut a tiny tip off a corner)
  5. Next drizzle the orange, then the yellow, green, blue, and finally the pink.
  6. The pink drizzle should end right at the stars so it looks like the gold at the end of the rainbow.
  7. Let dry, and then it’s ready to eat!

  1. As I said on Facebook, I’ll be making these with Natalie. These are fabulous–and pretty! And I love your decor. We need a large ghost like this. But I’ll be honest, it would probably startle me each time.

  2. Hang in there! One day at a time, you’ll stride right along. I myself am working 3 jobs (with no days off in 3 weeks. I ended up in the hospital last night though). The defeated blow up ghost does look pretty hilarious, I love those little foot steps too. I hope things start to come together so you guys can make way with the renovations. Keep your head up!

  3. I agree.. a chocolate covered pretzel is just a perfect combination of flavors: salt, crunch.. yum! They make a nice gift too. I love Halloween. I have life-size mummies back-lit at my side door:)

  4. I love anything chocolate covered and we made some Smurf ones when the movie was out. Madison loved them. BTW we also have this ghost, the first time Madison saw it she said “he’s creepy”. lol

  5. Candy melts really are the best ever! Love this recipe and that ghost, but Anneliese wouldn’t let us have that anywhere near our house. Are you going to be Rainbow Bright???

  6. My husband is out of town for 10 days, and I thought I’d get so much done, but instead I’m just drowning in to-do’s and problems! A sick dog, too much work, Every morning I wake up and think “yay, I’m a day closer to him coming home”! Those pretzels are so pretty and look delicious!
