Pink Chocolate Dipped Pretzels in the House!!!
Welcome everyone! I hope you have a great time hopping along today. Today really is my birthday! Every year since I was eight, I’ve had a strawberry birthday. 😀 DH has continued this tradition for me. He makes my cake every year. I can’t wait to see it today! I have strawberry cake with strawberry icing, strawberry ice cream and strawberry soda (or strawberry drink of some kind, the drink varies a bit). On Friday, I decided to make pretzel favors for my guests. Here’s what I did:
I bought this little pretzel kit at Joann’s with the best intentions of creating those detailed pretzels…in pink and white.
Well, it looks JUST LIKE THE PICTURE ON THE BOX doesn’t it? 😉 Right. Hover over the photos to get some inside info on my thought processes.
UP FROM THE DEPTHS…
I held this up and took the photo all by my little self just so you could see the bottom. I’m cheering that I didn’t end up wearing it on my head. So, I didn’t take the time to pipe in the chocolate in different colors. I just poured it all in and swirled the pretzels around. LOL! Even though I did it that way, I think they still turned out pretty. Next time I’ll at least keep the chocolate in the holder area without messy over spill. Between you and me, kitchen scissors made those edges look just fine. SHHHH! 😉
BTW, I made a bunch of the pretzels and the curly swirled ones (not shown) were the cutest. 😀

Alrighty, have fun visiting all of the blogs. Everyone has a give away for you!!
