Chocolate covered pretzels

Published April 25, 2012 by pinkpossibilities

Today I am going to teach you how to make chocolate covered pretzels.
I used these at my Pirate party, as Peg legs.
Items you will need are a bag of long large straight pretzels, a bag of chocolate (I used semi sweet chocolate chips) and sprinkles or nuts.

Melt your chocolate it a microwave safe container. Start off with a minute and then 15 second increments until it is totally melted. Be careful not to heat to long, chocolate can burn easily.

Using a spoon I would take a couple pretzels at a time and spoon melted chocolate 2/3rd’s of the way up the pretzel. Then I would tap the pretzel in the bowl to remove excess chocolate.

Now take a sheet of waxed paper and lay on the bottom of a cookie sheet. Once you finish adding chocolate onto your pretzel lay on top of waxed paper.

Add sprinkles, nuts or swirl a different color chocolate onto the chocolate dipped part of pretzel.
Continue until you have a complete row on waxed paper.



Once I finished all of the pretzels and the were all layed out. I placed in the freezer for and hour to set. These were a hit at the party and we all love the sweet and salty taste. mmmmm
