At the root of this treat is plenty of penny-wise practicality. "I first started making the 'logs' after I saw some chocolate-dipped pretzels at a shop," explains Mary Biebl of St. Paul, Minnesota. "They sure were appealing—but the price was outrageous. So I came up with my own version. "Nowadays, I often tie bundles of plastic-wrapped 'logs' with ribbons to give out a Christmas, or I'll set a stack out on a pretty plate for a party."—Mary Biebl, St. Paul, Minnesota

Ingredients

  • 1 pound white candy coating, coarsely chopped
  • 1 package (10 ounces) pretzel rods
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 small heavy-duty resealable plastic bag

Directions

  1. In a microwave, melt candy coating; stir until smooth. Pour into an ungreased 8-in. square pan or a tall glass. Roll or dip pretzels in coating, leaving 1 in. of space on the end you are holding; allow excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets; let stand until set.
  2. In a microwave, melt chocolate chips; stir until smooth. Pour into a small resealable plastic bag. Carefully cut a very small hole in the bottom corner of the bag. Pipe stripe markings across the pretzel rods to resemble birch trees. Allow to set. Store in an airtight container. Yield: about 2 dozen.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 4, 2012

This is a unique Birch Pretzel Logs recipe. It is quick, simple, & very similar to Birch Tree Bark & Logs. Would create a simple Christmas Gift. Would make a very simple treat set out at a Holiday Party. Would inspire people with unusual fondness for pretzels, to get excited at their novelty!
