Chocolate Dipped Treats

I love fast and easy treats for school and parties. 

The kids (and parents) love anything dipped in chocolate. 

With some fun toppings, almost any cookie can be dipped in chocolate and decorated with some sprinkles. Color coordinate for a holiday BBQ, add them to your dessert table, or take them as a treat to the kids next play date or sports event.

Above are some Oreos that I dipped by hand, placed on a cookie sheet lines with wax paper and let my daughter add the sprinkles to.

These are Double Stuffed Oreo Pops. Don't use the regular Oreos unless you are using wooden popsicle sticks. The lollipop sticks are just a bit too fat for regular Oreos. 
Just stick them, chill them, dip and decorate them. 
So easy!

My favorite treat is a Chocolate Dipped Pretzel Stick! There are so many different ways to decorate them for almost any occasion and they are sure to please taste buds.

I've chosen mini spring colored chips, mini marshmallows, and mini peanut butter cups to decorate these.

The trick to dipping long pretzel rods like these, is to use a deep cup. I use my Blue Dixie Cup ;)
Melt your chocolate in a bowl and then add it to the cup. 
Dip the pretzel rod, scrape the bottom along the side of the cup and then place it on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. 
Go crazy with the toppings! 

I've even seen Star Wars themed parties with blue and red coated pretzel rods as Light Sabers!
