|I used up a lot more sprinkles than I thought I would, but they tasted great.
|I mixed them all together.
I feel sort of horrible though, this year I have my part time job so I miss a lot of the games. I gave up on practices last year as they are as early as 6am. I told Hubby that if we had a girl I would be the one taking her to early horseback riding lessons or something, but we had a boy so it was his job. Forget the fact that most of the kids have their moms there, I try not to think about it. Anyway, I have missed some games and feel horrible about it, I tell Pork Chop how proud I am of him and what not. He seems okay with it, I tell him it is bonding time for him and daddy. Not sure he buys that, can you tell I feel guilty?
That showed her.
Anyway this is easy, they are cheap ( that's what she said!) ( I have been dying to say that, and it wasn't even a good one, darn it) and Hubby can just give them to the coach to hand out. So it is a win win all around.
|Make sure the chocolate sets a bit or the sprinkles just drop off.
|I bury the pretzel and leave it while I dip another one.
So take a pretzel and dip it as much or as little as you want in the chocolate, then tap it a lot on the side of the bowl to get the extra off. Also you want the chocolate to start setting a bit as once the sprinkles are on they can sort of slide off if it is too runny.
|Just leave them to dry.
Anyway, once they are set enough move them into a box or like I did put them into a cake pan and put them in the fridge. I did this so they would be hard before I started packing them. I just got the cheapest cookie bags I could at the bakers warehouse. I also got the pretzels there too. They came in a bag of 20 for about $2, the only issue was about 3 or 4 in every bag were broken. This was no problem, either you just dip the broken bits, or like I did crush them up, mix them with the left over chocolate and put them in a silicon mold to make bark. See two treats for the price of one. Anyway, just put the pretzels in a bag and tie with ribbon and send to the hockey game with your kid. Then be the best mom ever, or the one who obviously has too much time on her hands. (No snark there at all right?!)
|The bag was a tight fit, I only tied up the kids because I didn't want to put staples in theirs.
|I stapled the ones for my friends, because I am the lazy kind of baker.
|Some of the left over pretzels that I smashed.
|And then you mix it all up
|And try to get it in the mold. I had flash backs of the stupid oreo bark and again said next time I would use a food processor to get smaller pieces. I will forget you know that right?
|They kind of look like soap, what can you do? They still taste good.
