I’m a big fan of sweet-and-salty flavor combinations! So of course I love chocolate covered pretzels! I like dipping them in white and dark or milk chocolate, then coating with a variety of holiday sprinkles or crushed candy canes. Since these are only half-dipped, they’re easy to handle and quick to make. They make a great snack or homemade gift for the holidays!
CHRISTMASY CHOCOLATE DIPPED PRETZELS by NancyCreative
Makes about 47 white chocolate and 47 semi-sweet chocolate dipped pretzels
- 1 (4-ounce) bar semi-sweet baking chocolate, chopped (or use a milk chocolate baking bar)
- 1 (4-ounce) bar white baking chocolate, chopped
- optional: 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil mixed into each small bowl of melted chocolate to make it smoother for dipping (stir in the coconut oil after the chocolate is all melted!)
- 94 small pretzel twists
- Different kinds of holiday sprinkles put in very small bowls or tea cups, for coating the chocolate (I used crushed candy canes as one of the coatings)
Place the two kinds of chocolate in separate small microwaveable bowls, breaking each bar into 4 pieces. Heat each bowl at 30-second intervals on medium, stirring after each time, until the chocolate has melted, about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes (melt one bowl of chocolate at a time, and when you use up the first bowl, melt your second bowl). If desired, stir in 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil into each bowl of melted chocolate (stir in after chocolate is all melted) to make it even smoother for dipping.
Dip each pretzel twist into the white or semi-sweet chocolate, and shake off any excess chocolate. Then dip in one of the sprinkle toppings or the crushed candy cane topping. Place on parchment paper or waxed paper until chocolate sets.
These are really super-easy to make and they’re a fun snack for Christmas! What fun and easy treats have you been making this holiday season?
