Makes 8 wands
Let's get dipping!
4 ounces vanilla candy coating
or almond bark
Powdered food coloring
(optional: see note)
8 large pretzel rods
Assorted colored sugars, sprinkles,
and sugar candy decorations
Melt white candy coating according to package directions. Add powdered food coloring if desired. Stir to blend.
Dip or drizzle pretzel rods with candy coating. Place coated pretzel rods on a foil-lined sheet pan that has been sprayed lightly with nonstick cooking spray. Decorate with sugars, sprinkles, or candies while candy coating is still warm.
Place sheet pan in freezer for 10 minutes to harden candy coating. Remove and eat immediately or store in an airtight container for several days.
Liquid and paste food colorings cause melted candy coating and chocolate to "seize." This means when it is added to the melted ingredient, it makes it clump together and become lumpy and stiff. That's not good! Powdered food coloring may be found in craft or cake decorating stores and is the only type of food coloring you should use when working with chocolate and candy coating.
