March Madness is here, so I thought it time that I made these Basketball Chocolate Pretzel Rods that have been bouncing around in my head. These are simple to whip up – anyone can make them and they take just minutes to complete. Make a batch before the next big game and I bet your friends and family will enjoy munching these tasty treats.DIY Basketball Chocolate Covered Pretzel Rods

If you prefer written instructions, read on:

Using a black edible marker, draw the lines of a basketball onto orange chocolate melts.

Pour the white chocolate melts into a microwave safe bowl. Place in microwave for 1 minute. Remove and stir. Place back in microwave for 30 second bursts, stirring in between until completely melted.

Dip the pretzel rod into the melted chocolate, using a spoon to completely cover if needed.

Sprinkle on the sprinkles and place a basketball chocolate onto the end.

Once your pretzel rods are complete, place them in the fridge for a few minutes to harden.
