Make it a family event. The memory will be a cherished Valentine Day tradition! At Huckleberry Hill we enjoy having these treats with hot chocolate, cuddling up and watching The Peanuts…nothing beats Snoopy, Woodstock, Charlie Brown and friends for a classic ‘throw-back good time’!
Don’t you love Valentine themed sprinkles? Here is a sampling from my collection:

- Place chocolate chips and shortening in medium heat-proof bowl. In separate large heat-proof bowl, put very warm water (100° to 110°F.) to 1-inch depth. Carefully place bowl with chocolate into bowl with water; water should come halfway up side of chocolate bowl.
- Stir chocolate and shortening CONSTANTLY with dry rubber scraper until chocolate and shortening are melted and mixture is smooth. *Do NOT get water in bowl with chocolate. (If water cools, replace it with very warm water as directed above; water temperature is important to success). Remove chocolate bowl from inside water bowl.
Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
One pretzel rod at a time, dip your pretzel into your melted candy coating. Drip off excess candy coating.
Sprinkle generously with sprinkles of choice.
Place on parchment paper to allow to dry and ENJOY!!!Once dried they can be placed in cellophane bags, tied with a pretty ribbon and will be ready for handing out on Valentine’s Day.
