Yummy Chocolate Covered Pretzels & Baby Davis!

I made these pretzels for the shower we had for Hannah & Davis. Chocolate covered pretzels are a favorite in our house. I usually make them every christmas, but they really are too easy to make and too yummy to save for only christmas time.

These pretzels went perfectly with our Bee theme shower!

All you need is pretzels, a bag of white chocolate chips, bag of milk or dark chocolate chips, vegetable oil, and food coloring or sprinkles. Simple!
Heat water in a double boiler {or fill a larger pot with water and place a smaller pot on top}. Once simmering throw in the white chips. Once they start to melt add in about two tablespoons of vegetable oil. This will help liquify the chocolate a little... allow white chocolate to melt until smooth. It will take about 10 minutes or so to get the right consistency.

White chips are easy to dye any desired color. I chose yellow for our Mommy to BEE theme and only dropped in a couple drops of food coloring. 
Once melted, coat the end of the pretzel and allow to dry on wax paper or aluminum foil. To speed things up place the chocolates in the fridge! They taste good with warm melted chocolate too :)

{I have also used the pretzel twists and just drop in a handful of  whole pretzels, stir to coat, and lift out with a fork to dry}. 
To make my pretzels look like Bee's, I melted about 6 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate chips in the double boiler using the same method with about 1 tablespoon vegetable oil. I used a spoon to drizzle regular chocolate over cooled white chocolate dipped pretzels. Easy, easy, easy! 

Around Christmas I usually leave the pretzels coated in white chocolate and roll them in red or green sprinkles. Festive, and again so easy and delicious! 

Speaking of Hannah and Davis.... HE ARRIVED!!! Caroline and I happened to be in Greensboro visiting mom due to the massive power outage in virginia, so we got to meet the sweet little guy the day after he made his 8 day early arrival. 

Hannah and I were eager to introduce these two cutie pies... we also began discussing their arranged marriage at the perfect age of 45 :) 

Just kidding, but seriously, it will be SO FUN for these two to have lots and lots of play dates in the coming years! 
LOVE you Hannah and Aaron and Baby Davis! Thrilled to have been able to meet you!
