Last week I made my Christmas goodies, chocolate-covered pretzels and Oreos. They are so simple to make. Just purchase a bag of chocolate wafers from your local craft store. Then pour half of the bag into a small, deep bowl. Microwave for 1 minute. Remove and stir. Then microwave for 30 seconds and stir again. Now the wafers should be melted and smooth. Dip a pretzel rod in the chocolate while holding the other end vertically. Spoon the chocolate onto the rod, leaving 3 inches bare. Lay on wax paper to set. No need to refrigerate.

Then melt a cup of white wafers in a cup. When melted, spoon into a plastic sandwich bag. Twist the top shut and cut the very tip of the corner off of the bag to drizzle onto pretzels.

Then repeat using Oreos.
When I finished, I made up these gift baskets. One for my hairdresser, who keeps me trimmed, one for my chiropractor who keeps everything in place and one for my boss that's a pleasure to work for!

Cross a few more tasks off my list...

i love chocolate covered pretzels. I made those a few years ago along with chocolate covered spoons for stirring into coffees and hot chocolate!
