Recipe for Chocolate Matchsticks

Sally says, “My childhood friend Cynthia Stuart introduced me to this quintessential salty-sweet combination many years ago but I have to admit I consider this rendition pure genius! Just see how cool they look!”

Serves 1

15 pretzel thins (about [1/2] ounce)

2 teaspoons semisweet chocolate morsels

Place the chocolate morsels on a small plate and microwave for 10 seconds. Stir. Continue microwaving until the chocolate has melted, about 40 seconds. Take 1 pretzel stick and dip the end in the chocolate. Dip again. Continue with all the pretzels. If there is any chocolate remaining, keep dipping the pretzels until the chocolate has been used up and the tips are well coated. Serve immediately or set aside at room temperature for up to 4 hours.
