Christmas Chocolate Gourmet Pretzels

All you need to make these are:

1 package pretzel rods
chocolate bark
various toppings - I used crushed candy canes, crushed Heath bars, Christmas sprinkles

Other good toppings are mini M&M's, mini chocolate chips (any flavor), drizzle of chocolate in contrasting color, crushed salted peanuts.

Melt the chocolate and let it cool for a few minutes so it will stick to the pretzel better.  Work in small batches of chocolate as it dries quickly.  You can either put your coatings on parchment paper and roll the chocolate pretzel in it, or you can sprinkle it onto the pretzel.  Lay the pretzels on a parchment lined cookie sheet until chocolate is set.  Package them up pretty and share them with your family and friends.  Enjoy!
