Chocolate covered Pretzels… cutest treat ever!
Aren’t these lovely?
I found these edible decorations recently. Sprinkles, Christmas trees, Edible balls….
And I went crazy dipping these Pretzels in Chocolate and covering them with a load of sprinkles!
Speaking of sprinkles, I’m in love with them! They just make food look so bright and chirpy! 😀 Am I right or what?
If you’re looking for a recipe, there isn’t one. It’s just melting chocolate – dipping pretzels in it – covering the chocolate part with pretzels.
And yet, recipes like these are the best, eh? 😀
You can get creative and use toppings other than sprinkles like crushed Oreo, crushed candy canes, crushed nuts etc.
Sweet + salty, chocolatey + crunchy… you cannot go wrong with a classic chocolate covered pretzel! 🙂
CHOCOLATE COVERED PRETZELS
Melt both kinds of chocolate in the microwave.
Dip each Pretzel / Pretzel bite in the chocolate (You can cover the entire pretzel with chocolate too, but covering half of it looks better!)
While the chocolate is still hot, sprinkle your sprinkles / edible decorations.
Place them on a baking sheet lined with foil or parchment paper. Chill in the fridge for 10 minutes for the chocolate to harden.
Enjoy your Chocolate covered pretzels! 🙂
- 8 oz / 1 cup Bakers Baking Chocolate - or any melting chocolate. (White or Milk or Dark)
- 1 bag Hard pretzels (or 4 cups pretzels of choice)
- Sprinkles (or any edible decoration)
- Avoid chocolate chips, which are not meant for dipping.
- Use homemade or store bought Soft or Hard Pretzels or any kind of pretzel bites.
- Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
- In a microwave safe bowl, break up the chocolate bars into small pieces so they melt easily. Microwave on high for 30 seconds. Remove and stir for about a minute. The chocolate will continue to melt as you stir. If needed, microwave in 10 second increments until all is melted and smooth. (Or use the double boiler technique to melt chocolate)
- Take a pretzel and dip into chocolate, using a spoon to evenly cover ½ of the pretzel. Shake the pretzel a bit to remove any excess chocolate.
- Immediately cover the chocolate with sprinkles before the chocolate hardens. Do this over a paper plate, to catch the sprinkles that miss the pretzel.
- Place each pretzel on parchment paper lined baking sheet and refrigerate for about 10 minutes for the chocolate to harden. Enjoy!
