No Baking Required (Just Don't Tell the Bake Sale Police)
Pretzel rods plus melted chocolate plus toppings equal a don't-bother-turning-on-the-oven treat that even a toddler can help with. Microwave chocolate, mint or any other flavor of chips, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted and smooth. Dip in half a pretzel, and then sprinkle with or roll in colored sprinkles, mini M&M's, toasted coconut, cookie crumbs or crushed Reese's Pieces. Stock up on long, narrow pretzel rod bags before you begin.
