Hypnotizing Snake Staffs
These Caramel and Chocolate Covered Pretzel Rods are easy to make and you can do a lot with them! As a quick snack, these can be as easy as microwaving some chocolate chips and dipping pretzels! As a more decadent treat, you can add the caramel and sprinkles to really go all out. This treat is meant to be Jafar’s Staff. We used gold sprinkles, per the recipe, but you could really dress these up for any Disney Villain just by changing the color of the sprinkles!
Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 30 minutes
Yield 12 pieces
- 1/4 c butter
- 1 c. granulated sugar
- 1/2 c. light corn syrup
- 6 oz evaporated milk
- 12 pretzel rods
- 2 c. chocolate cups
- Red and Gold fancy sprinkles and candy pieces
Prepare the Caramel: In a medium saucepan, over medium heat, combine the butter, sugar, corn syrup. Bring to boil, stirring frequently.
Slowly, pour in the evaporated milk. Stir constantly to make sure every ounce is incorporated. Make sure the caramel sauce is boiling the entire time. Cook and stir until the caramel becomes a soft ball. Test the firmness by using a candy thermometer ( 235 degrees). If you go over this temperature the caramel will be more difficult to work with, so plan on stirring constantly and pull from the heat as soon as it reaches 235 degrees.
Once removed, allow to cool for 5 minutes. Line a work surface with parchment paper. Dip each pretzel 2/3rd into the caramel, using a spoon if necessary. Place each on the parchment paper.
In a small glass bowl, microwave the chocolate chips for 30 seconds, check, and then heat just a little bit more to completely melt. Be very careful with this step. Chocolate chips can easily burn. Stir until totally smooth.
Dip the pretzels ( covered in caramel) into the chocolate, place on parchment. Once they’re all covered, and while still warm cover with your choice of candy sprinkles. Cool and enjoy!
This shiny drink is full of tropical flavors and perfect for Moana fans looking for a little more fabulous! Super easy and with juices you probably have on hand, this treat combines pineapple and orange juice with a splash of lime! Add the almond syrup for a more complex flavor! And, full disclosure, we used gold dust to make it even shinier!
Prep Time: 5 Minutes
Yield 4 servings
- 8 oz pineapple juice
- 8 oz. orange juice
- Juice of 1 lime
- 2 oz almond syrup ( orgeat)
- Crushed Ice
- Springs of Mint for garnish
In a shaker, combine all juices and the syrup with ice.
Shake until chilled. Strain into a rocks glass filled with crushed ice
Clap the fresh mint between your hands to release the fragrant oils and garnish the drinks.
