Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Break the pretzel sticks up coarsely, place in a cereal bowl. Add the granola to a second cereal bowl.
Place 2/3 cup of the chocolate chips in a small heat safe mixing bowl. Melt in the microwave on High for 30 seconds, stir, continue on 20 second intervals, stirring after each one, until the chips are melted and smooth. Mix in remaining chips, stir until melted and smooth.
