Happy Easter! While the quarantine has us stuck at home, this Easter really wasn’t any different than any other year expect we didn’t get to go to church. Instead, I watched the service online and I am super thankful for all the blessings God has given my little family.
My son spent Easter with his dad this year and I wanted to surprise him with some fun Easter treats. I don’t put together an Easter basket for my kids but with the quarantine, my son wasn’t able to go on his traditional Easter egg hunt. I told him that next time I was at Walmart that I would get him a toy because I didn’t know if he wanted Beyblades or Tech Deck Skateboards.
Back to the Easter treats, I made some Easter Chocolate Covered Pretzel Rods. This was my first time making them and it wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be to make. But they still came out cute and my son loved the fun surprise.
Ingredients Needed to Make Easter Chocolate Covered Pretzel Rods

Easter Chocolate Covered Pretzel Rods
- 1 block CandyQuik Vanilla Chocolate
- Wilton Gel Food Coloring
- Easter Themed Sprinkles
- Tip: Use one main color to make your Easter Chocolate Covered Pretzel Rods. I used two and it was a bit harder to make them.
- Melt CandyQuik according to package directions. If using one color, I would opt to use the tray that comes inside of the package. I made two different colors and divided the CandiQuik in half. Then I placed it inside of a mug and mircowave in increments so that you don't burn the chocolate.
- Add a small amount of Wilton Gel food coloring to the CandyQuik vanilla chocolate. Stir and add more food coloring until you achieve the desired color.
- Dip the pretzel rod into the CandyQuik dish and swirl. Use a spoon as needed to add the CandyQuik on the pretzel rod. Or dip the pretzel rod into a mug and tilt the mug slightly so that the CandyQuik is near the edge of the mug. Then swirl the pretzel rod in the CandyQuik until covered. Or you can dip and spoon the chocolate over the pretzel.
- Add festive Easter themed sprinkles.
- Place on parchment paper and allow the CandyQuik to dry. You can also refrigerate it or place it in the freezer for quick drying.
