Chocolate Covered Pretzels With Marshmallows

“A friend at work brought these in one Christmas, and I've been making them ever since. Without a doubt, the easiest sweet 'n salty thing ever. I only dare make these around the holidays because when I do, I can't stop eating them! I was lucky enough to get some excellent quality dark chocolate wafers from a baking and chocolate supply store and they melt like a charm. If you want to be really fancy, you can use the mini-pretzels and put a single pretzel with these fixings in an individual paper candy cup. Very pretty and just as delicious, but much more time consuming.”
2 cookie sheets' worth!
