Caramel and Chocolate Dipped Pretzels

Pretzel rods
Caramel (optional)
Vanilla A’peels or candy melts (any color(s))

Melt caramel in microwave in a skinny deep microwave container (glasses or tall mugs work great) stir occasionally so it doesn’t burn. Dip pretzels in the caramel and let excess drip off. Lay onto parchment paper, repeat with remaining pretzels. Let cool slightly, shape the caramel around the pretzels a few times as cooling so it’s not so spread out. Once caramel is cooled and hardened, melt the A’peels in the microwave, again in a skinny deep microwave container. Dip the caramel pretzels into the vanilla A’peels. Place back onto parchment to let set. Once set drizzle with a different color of A’peels or candy melts. Enjoy!

Tips: Use milk, semi-sweet or white chocolate chips in place of A’peels. Instead of drizzling with a different color roll freshly dipped pretzels in chopped peanuts. Have fun and be creative with the color choice! (The white pretzels have caramel and the red ones are just plain)
