Party Pics: Takeaway Treats

Remember going to birthday parties as a kid and coming home with a treat bag filled with bubbles, trading cards and candy necklaces? Man…those were the days, and sometimes I miss them.  Why should kids have all the fun? 

I only had two children at my birthday party, but had sweet party favors at the door for every attendee. Grown-ups work hard all week–we deserve treats too! I went with pretzel rods dipped in white chocolate then covered in sprinkles and cookie crumbs. And if I may say so myself, they were deliciously adorable!
Melt a bag of white chocolate chips with a teaspoon of shortening in a double boiler over low heat.

After melted, I separated the melted chocolate into two bowls, then added a few drops of food coloring to each bowl. 

After dipping the pretzel rods, scatter sprinkles or cookie crumbs onto the chocolate before it has a chance to cool. Line them up on a cookie sheet covered with wax paper.

Make sure to refrigerate the pretzels after coating to ensure they cool and harden properly.

What’s the best party favor you’ve ever gotten?
