OK on to the chocolate covered pretzel tutorial!
What you will need:
  • Pretzel Rods
  • White Chocolate ( You can use, dark chocolate or milk chocolate too!)
  • Sprinkles
  • Double Boiler ( I used a pot than I had a class bowl that fit right on top!

  • Fill pot with water.
  • Fill bowl with chocolate I used 4  boxes of Bakers White Chocolate
  • Turn stove on high and melt chocolate stirring every so often, you don’t want the chocolate to burn!
  • After the chocolate is melted lower the heat of the stove!

  • Now take a pretzel rod and dip the pretzel in the chocolate. Take a spoon and help cover the pretzel with chocolate. Leave about 2-3 inches of the pretzel w/o chocolate so you have something to hold on to!

  • Let harden over night for good results! Then place pretzels on a pretty plate or platter! Another great idea is to give these cute pretzels has a goody bag gift! Wrap them in pretty plastic wrap and tie a ribbon around it!

Simple as 1-2-3 Kitchen Tip:

Storing Chocolate Covered Pretzels

Store chocolate-covered pretzels in an air-tight container in a pantry or other food storage area. These treats do not hold up well in the freezer, as the pretzel loses moisture. It is possible the pretzels will taste stale when defrosted.

They were so yummy and everyone loved them!!
