I love tiny things. Make something smaller than usual, and it’s instantly more interesting. I think that’s part of the reason I’ve been making so many chocolate-dipped pretzels recently. Mini pretzels + mini heart sprinkles + chocolate = adorable little Valentine’s treats.
I found these itsy bitsy heart sprinkles in a bulk package at my local grocery store, but Wilton also sells them as “micro heart sprinkles.”
Just melt your chocolate in a double boiler (I used semi-sweet chocolate chips and white candy melts), then dip your pretzels in the chocolate. Sprinkle with the tiny hearts and place on waxed paper to harden. These would make a pretty little gift for a friend, neighbor, your child’s teacher, or anyone else you love or appreciate! Most of mine disappeared during the Super Bowl party we hosted on Sunday evening, so I’ll need to make more soon.
P.S. Is it just me, or do you think the pretzels with milk chocolate look like little masked bandits?! Or maybe like they’re ready to attend a Valentine’s masquerade ball!
