One of my favorite parts of the holiday season is all the sweets. I'm a big chocolate person, so the fact that everything is fudge covered brings me a lot of joy.

Chocolate covered pretzels are quite expensive to buy, so I did some research into making them from scratch. It's relatively simple, however, there are a few things you need to keep in mind when making them, otherwise they lack the correct texture and flavor.

It's relatively simple: melt the chocolate, dip the pretzels, add the toppings, and let them dry on parchment or wax paper.

Here are some of my tips:

Candy melts are the best type of chocolate to use as they melt easily, but if you don't have any on hand, chocolate chips work too. Semisweet will, however, botch the taste. Add some butter or shortening to the chocolate chips and put them in the microwave or on the stove to melt them and make it easier to dip the pretzels in it.

If you want to use rods, you can use a tall drinking glass for the chocolate, making it much easier to dip. If you want to use twists, a slightly less shallow bowl should do the trick.

You can add whatever toppings you want to make them look and taste more festive. Sprinkles, a drizzle, toffee, nuts, shredded coconut, or whatever your heart desires.

If you're like me and enjoy everything covered in chocolate, this works for everything. Fudge covered strawberries, Oreos and crackers are also extremely popular in the holiday season.

They make a great gift and are soooo yummy!

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
