Christmas Edible Wreath


You will need:
pretzel knots
white chocolate or chocolate melts
sprinkles
ribbon for hanging

On a sheet of wax paper, layer pretzels into a wreath shape overlaying the pretzels on top of each other.

Melt chocolate in 30 second intervals in a microwave safe dish. Stir after each interval until chocolate is completely melted.

Pick up pretzels one at a time and dip the ends into the white melted chocolate. Place pretzel back in place creating a wreath. Work quickly so chocolate won't set while you are working.

Add sprinkles to wet chocolate and let set.

Tie a ribbon around the top when chocolate is set.
