Chocolate Covered Pretzel Rods (Lightsabers)

I made these for a Star Wars themed Mishloach Manot for Purim a few years ago. We all dressed up as Star Wars characters and I packaged these Lightsabers with some dried starfruit my dad makes and some star wars toys and hamantashen it was fun.


  • Prep Time : 15 min
  • Cook Time : 1 min
  • Ready Time : 16 min


24 pretzels


  • 2 12-ounce packages dark chocolate chips
  • 24 large pretzel rods
  • assorted colored sugar


Place the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Remove and stir with a rubber spatula.  The chips should melt while you are stirring, but if they don’t, you can continue to microwave for 15 more seconds, then stir again.
Dip one pretzel rod into the chocolate; use a spoon to spread the chocolate about halfway up the rod. Twist the rod to let the excess chocolate drip off. Hold the rod over a piece of wax paper or a paper plate and shake the colored sugar over top while turning rod.  Place the pretzel on another piece of wax paper to dry. Continue the same way until they are coated.  Let dry completely, about 24 hours.
