A new twist in the age-old standoff between sweet tooths and salt lovers, pretzels dipped in chocolate satisfy both cravings at once: Melt white, milk, or dark chocolate in a double boiler (add 1/2 teaspoon vegetable shortening for every 8 ounces of chocolate). Coat thin pretzels; let harden in a cool place. Dress them up with pastel sprinkles and matching bows, if desired.

What a great wedding or baby shower favor!!!! Color-coordinate sprinkles and bows to the theme. Or make them for the next bake sale at your child's school? You could also nestle them in pastel or silver cupcake cups, to make them easier to take home. I'll definitely use this idea!
