Chocolate Covered Pretzels

23 Dec

All through my years of growing up, my grandparents would make huge batches of chocolate covered pretzels. I used to love during Christmas time when they would give us our own little individual bags. I never fully appreciated how LONG it takes to do all of this, until I did it myself! Definitly worth the time, but you might want to set up your “dipping” station in front of the tv or have someone good to talk to for awhile. You can do these in simple milk, dark, or white chocolate. You can get fancy with them and drizzle opposite color chocolates on them. Or you can do a Christmas twist as I did in some of these pictures, and used crushed candy canes in the dipping chocolate.

  • 15 oz. bag of pretzels
  • 2 bags of 14 oz. Wilton candy melts (chocolate of your choice)

Melt candy coating according to instructions on the bag, most include using the defrost on your microwave. Dip pretzels and place onto wax paper. Let sit until cool and hard. Enjoy!

    Wow these look fantastic! Did you or your grandparents ever try making chocolate-covered raisins? I think they’re just as addicting as chocolate-covered pretzels!

        Chocolate dipped nuts sound good too! Would you dip those like strawberries and leave one end uncovered?
