Easy handmade Valentine's Day gift

We're cooking up easy, delicious, and adorable in the kitchen this month with a super sweet gift you can give to grandparents, teachers, neighbors, really anyone deserving of a homemade expression of your love. Here's what you'll need: 12 oz. package of chocolate chips (white, milk, dark), pretzel rods, festive sprinkles. Place the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and 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 or butter knife 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 and shake sprinkles on all sides. Place the pretzel on another piece of wax paper to dry. Repeat until you've coated all the pretzels and let them dry completely, about 24 hours. Place in a decorative vase, tin, or jar or wrap individually and finish with a ribbon. Ta-da! A gift anyone is sure to love.
