Simply Chocolate Covered Oreos and Pretzels!

Warning - if you are to receive a present from me, these just might be included.  Sorry to ruin your surprise! Shhhhh.....

Some things in life are so simple, they're good.  Chocolate covered pretzels and Oreos are so easy to make but so yummy to eat.  First the pretzels, simply buy snack pretzels and either Almond Bark or white chocolate chips (both in the baking goods aisle).  If you really want to feel like you are baking, go ahead and melt the chocolate/almond bark in a double boiler.  I go for convenience and pull out a microwave safe dish.  Empty the bag into the bowl.  Pop it into the microwave for 1 minute intervals.  You might need to do 30 second intervals if your microwave is newer than 10 years old - mine is not!  It's still working so we have not replaced it.  That - use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without kind of philosophy!  In my microwave, a bag of white chocolate chips took 2 min 30 seconds to melt. 
Now pay attention, this is the hard part....

Dump a handful of pretzels into the chocolate.  Stir.  Really difficult, eh???  Have waxed paper or parchment paper already lining your counter or cookie sheet.  Take individual pretzels with the fork, tap the side of the dish a few times to shake off excess

and place on waxed paper.  That simple!  If you are feeling festive, sprinkle sugar crystals over the pretzels.

Oreos are the same.  And if you want to change up a bit, use dark or semisweet chocolate.  A bonus was finding Peppermint Oreos.  We dipped those in white chocolate and sprinkled crushed candy canes on top.  Teen gave her grand approval of those especially!
