  • 17-18 pretzel rods
  • 1 bag (12 ounces) dark green candy melts
  • 17-18 sliced almonds


  • Line a large sheet pan with parchment paper and set aside. Break the pretzel rods so you remove about 1/4th of one end. (Snack on those while you make these:))
  • Separate the green chocolate candy melts into 3 microwave-safe bowls (makes for easier melting) and add 1/2 teaspoon vegetable oil or shortening into each part. (Not essential, but makes it easier to coat the pretzels). Melt one part of the chocolate at a time. Place it in the microwave and microwave for bursts of 15 seconds stirring in between each burst for 10 seconds until the green chocolate is melted and smooth.
  • Dip the ragged end (from breaking) of the pretzel into the melted chocolate and dip about 3/4ths the way down. Use a spoon to help guide the chocolate and cover the amount you want. 
  • Tap and shake the pretzel to smooth the chocolate and remove excess.
  • Place the chocolate on the prepared sheet pan.
  • Add a sliced almond to the tip of the pretzel and allow for the pretzel rods to harden at room temperature.
