WOW! I had no idea I could do the dipped pretzels that far in advance! I'll do what you are doing then Leonard, I'm over in Seminole now so temp wise, if it works for you, it'll work for me!
Foodfly, I learned too to do that so the rods get as much chocolate coated on them.
-Slight change in subject, but Foodfly made me think of this. Does anyone have that Chocolate Melting Machine from Wilton? I've been thinking about getting it for these reasons and love the idea of not having do to the double broiler and worry about keeping the chocolate warm.
I love cooking with wine sometimes I even put it in the food.
