{Tutorial} Chocolate Covered Thermometers 

{Doc Mcstuffins Party}


I was asked to make some chocolate covered thermometers for my niece's Doc Mcstuffins 3rd Birthday Party. So I put together a small tutorial on how I made them. 
It's very simple.

You will need the following:
1. Pretzels rods 
2. Chocolate for dipping (candy melts, candy dips, etc) 
White and the colors you would like to use.
3. Vegetable oil
4. Spoon or measuring spoon
5. Pan or cookie sheet
6. Wax paper
7. Squeeze bottles or piping bags
8. Gloves
9. Paper towel or napkins


When I started I made sure that I had ample work space. 
I layed down waxed paper for easy clean up.

Step 1. Melt your chocolate according to the instructions (usally 40 seconds to 1 minute), if using a microwave, stir at half intervals keeping the heating of the chocolate even. Be sure not to overheat as this will burn your chocolate. Your chocolate should be warm and easy to stir. If it's hard then you've burned it and will need to start over.

After your chocolate is melted you may need to thin it a little. You can test the thickness by dipping a pretzel rod into your chocolate, if the chocolate seems clumpy or too thick on the pretzel then add small amounts (half a teaspoon to 1 full tablespoon) depending on the amount of chocolate you use. Stir the chocolate after adding the oil then try dipping another pretzels. Once you've gotten the consistency the way you want it, it is time to dip all of your pretzels.

Step 2: Dip all your pretzel rods leaving about 1- 1 1/2 inches undipped.  Tap off excess chocolate then lay in your pan or on a cookie sheet.  Once your pan is full of pretzels, place in the fridge for about 10-15 minutes.  While your pretzels are in the fridge, you will need to melt your colored chocolate and pour into squeeze bottles or piping bags. Before pour the chocolate in the piping bag, do not cut the tip off just yet.

Step 3: Take pretzels out of the fridge, draw a circle at the top of the pretzel then draw a vertical line with your colored chocolate.  Since the pretzels are already cold it will only take a few minutes for the colored chocolate to harden.

Step 4. Draw horizontal lines for the temperature with the second color chocolate.

Since my niece's party was in multiple colors of pinks, blues, purples and greens, 
I made her pretzels in pink, blue and purple.

Step 5: Bag your completed chocolate covered thermometers in pretzel bags 
then tie with twist ties or ribbon.
