Preschoolers can help mix, measure and assemble all kinds of cookies, and they love helping! Below you’ll find a wide array of cookies to choose from to get started with your own cookie making day. Happy Baking!

My family likes to make chocolate covered pretzels and Chocolate covered peanut butter sandwiches, yum!

Both of these treats are covered in chocolate using the same technique. Start out with different base items (either a pretzel or a Ritz peanut butter sandwich) and then dip in melted almond bark (melting candy chocolate), scoop out the covered piece with a fork, let excess drip off and then place on waxed paper to cool and harden. For an extra decorated touch, drizzle the alternate color chocolate over the top of each treat or sprinkle with colored sugar sprinkles.

Chocolate covered pretzels


  • Pretzels – any shape or size. we prefer the bite sized traditional pretzels
