Dipped Pretzel Irish Wishing Sticks
This is a fun food item that the kids can help make. We just used store bought Frosting, Pretzel rods and sprinkles. Fun to give as gifts and tasty too.
- Pretzel Rods
- White or Green Frosting
- Put frosting in a small mug or other similar container. Add a tiny bit of water at a time, mixing well, to get a slightly thinner consistency. You want the frosting to stick to the pretzel sticks but not in a blobby way.
- Dip the end of the pretzel rod into the frosting, coating the top third or even half of the pretzel. Tap pretzel a few times, against inside of mug, to remove excess but make sure the pretzel is coated.
- Immediately shake sprinkles onto the coating and then set uncoated end in another mug, or lay across a small bowl, leaving the coating set until hardened.
- When coating are completely set, you can then package for giving. To serve at your party, just arrange pretzel rods in a container, coated ends up.
