Recipe for Homemade Chocolate Covered Pretzels
Chocolate covered pretzels are a great treat, and you can cater the recipe to match any holiday of the year. For example, if you want to make chocolate covered pretzels for Halloween, then you can dye white chocolate to make it orange and green. Consider dipping the pretzels in regular milk chocolate, and then drizzling the colored chocolate on top for decoration.
Homemade Chocolate Covered Pretzels Recipe
Step 1: Melt the chocolate, either on the stove top or in the microwave. Make sure to use a low heat temperature and stir frequently.
Step 2: As soon as the chocolate is melted, be ready to dip the pretzels. If you are using big pretzels, then you might consider holding one side of the pretzel and only dipping half of it in the chocolate. If you are using smaller twisted pretzels, then you can drop the entire pretzel in the chocolate and fish it out with a fork.
Step 3: Set the chocolate dipped pretzels on a flat piece of wax paper to cool. The chocolate needs to cool completely and harden before you pick up the pretzels, so it is a good idea to leave them sitting for a while.
Step 4: If you would like to add sprinkles or a decorative swish of another color of chocolate, then it is best to add these toppings while the chocolate is still warm.
If you are making these pretzels for someone with a peanut allergy or any other type of food allergy, then you need to make sure that you are selective about the ingredients that you choose. For example, you can find gluten-free pretzels at many grocery stores, to cater the dessert for anyone who can’t have gluten.
