Chocolate and Carmel Dipped Pretzel Rods

I've been making treats for both the football players and cheerleaders at my daughter's school. She is currently on the JV cheer squad and I love having goodies for the girls each week, and I've started making a few things for the football players as well. These chocolate covered pretzel rods are super quick and easy to make, and you are able to personalize them with your favorite teams color. I purchased some long skinny plastic bags at Wal-Mart to place them in.

1 Bag Pretzel Rods
1 Package Chocolate Almond Bark, melted
1 Package Kraft Caramel Bits
Various Colors Candy Melts

Melt the Kraft Caramel Bits by following the packages directions. I placed mine in a small glass canning jar and it was perfect. Prepare a table top with either wax paper or parchment paper. Dip each pretzel rod into melted caramel, shake off excess and carefully place on paper.  Repeat. Let cool completely.

Melt Almond Bark by following the packages directions. Take "dried" caramel dipped pretzel rod and dip into melted almond bark, shake off excess and place on paper to dry. Repeat.

This is where you can individualize yours by taking your favorite team's color. I used red candy melts and squiggled bright red over the top of the pretzels and then placed some black sprinkles on top while the candy melts was still wet.  Let cool completely then store in an air tight container.
Melt Caramel Bits in a tallish container for easier dipping
Once caramel has set you can dip them into the chocolate
Let completely dry
Decorate anyway you'd like
