Mer’s Candied Pretzels

2 bags pretzel sticks
1 bag white Wilton candy melts
1 bag red Wilton candy melts
1 shaker of sprinkles
1 sheet parchment
1 sandwich baggy
12 gift bags and 1 yd. ribbon

Melt white chips in a pyrex, 2 cup, measuring cup, according to directions (do not get it wet or it will ruin and do not overcook). Break all pretzels in half. Dip the broken end halfway up into the white, melted candy. Lay on parchment. Do this for all the pretzels. Sprinkle the sprinkles on liberally, while the candy coating is still not set (still melty).
Melt red chips according to directions in a sandwich-sized, zip lock bag. After melted (again do not get it wet or overcook), snip a very small piece from one corner of the bottom. Drizzle the red over the pretzels in strings. (You can use different colors for different occasions. These are for Valentine’s day).

Let set/ harden. Place six of the half-pretzels in each bag and tie with about 4 inches of ribbon. Makes 12 bags–be sure and add a tag with the candy recipe on it. From my friend Meredith, who has great, low-cost ideas for meals and treats!
