Chocolate Covered Pretzels

Steps for making Chocolate Covered Pretzels: 



  • 1 package (12 oz) semi-sweet chocolate chips or Belgian chocolate wafers
  • 1 Tbsp. shortening
  • 2 dozen pretzel rods or large pretzel twists
  • Assorted sprinkles, small candies, nuts, cookie crumbs, coconut, or hey how about bacon? (optional)
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips (optional) 


2a) Start by lining a baking sheet with wax paper. Chop up your chocolate into bits (OR don’t bother tying yourself into a pretzel and use wafers like I did). Microwave your chocolate on high in 30-second increments, stirring after each increment, until chocolate is just melted (usually this takes 1 minute). Remove from the heat and stir until smooth.


2b) Roll into the chocolate, I mean, roll each pretzel, one at a time, into the melted chocolate (you can use a spoon to help coat each pretzel). Coat each pretzel 3/4 of the way up.


2c) Decorate! Add sprinkles, cookie crumbs, or if your trying to ensure your boyfriend gets his servings of chocolate covered pretzels, add some bacon bits! Place chocolate covered pretzels on the prepared baking sheet and refrigerate until set (about 15 minutes).
