Disappearing Pretzel Wands

Disappearing Pretzel Wands 10.000
Jul 6, 2005

You can make the wands more creative by adding food coloring to the vanilla or using different varieties of sprinkles. They "disappear" while you eat them!

Servings: 10 wands
  • 1/2 cup chocolate fudge frosting
  • 1/2 cup candy sprinkles
  • 10 pretzel rods (such as Snyder's of Hanover)
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla frosting


Transfer chocolate frosting to a microwave-safe glass baking dish.

Microwave on high for 10 seconds or until melted; stir until smooth.

Roll each pretzel rod in the melted frosting, making sure to coat completely. Dip each stick in candy sprinkles and lay on a piece of foil or baking sheet.

Refrigerate to set the frosting (about 40 minutes). Transfer foil to a countertop work surface.

Place vanilla frosting in small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 10 seconds to soften.

Dip the tip of each pretzel in the vanilla frosting until coated; return wands to foil.

Let stand for 2 hours or until frosting is set.
