    Chocolate Dipped Worm Pretzels! This recipe is kid friendly, as long as you handle the tempered chocolate. This one is an easy treat- just dip pretzel rods in chocolate, cover in sprinkles and attach a gummy worm. Salty and sweet are always a winner. Ingredients: rod pretzels different colors of chocolate or chocolate chips shortening sprinkles gummy worms waxed paper Directions: 1. Temper or melt 1 cup of chocolate with 1 teaspoon of shortening in a microwave-safe bowl. Melt in 30 second bursts, stirring each time, until completely melted and smooth. 2. Working over the bowl of melted chocolate, spoon chocolate onto half of the pretzel, turning as you spoon and letting the excess chocolate fall back into the bowl. 3. Move pretzel to work over another bowl, spooning sprinkles over the chocolate, letting the excess sprinkles fall into the bowl (recycle the sprinkles). 4. Gently wrap a gummy worm around the pretzel, pressing into the chocolate. Place on waxed paper to set, making sure gummy worm is tucked on the bottom of the pretzel and adhered to the top. Let dry completely (about an hour) before removing from the waxed paper. Tips: *When pretzels are set, store them in an airtight container until ready to serve. They should be okay for a couple of days or so. thanks to: http://www.recipegirl.com/2009/10/26/kid-friendly-halloween-recipes/
