Next, melt white chocolate or candy melts in a microwave safe bowl with a few drops of coconut oil in it. (Coconut oil helps candy melt perfectly)
Melt as per package directions until smooth. Add food color and mix until combined.
Use a spoon to coat one end of the Pretzels Rods. Twirl to coat evenly. Repeat with the rest of the pretzel rods.
Coat most of the Pretzel rod, leaving one end empty (for holding it easily).
