Go from this…
in four easy steps!
Need a quick and easy idea for favors, goodie bags or stocking stuffers? These sweet-n-salty snacks are so yummy, my family couldn’t wait to eat the duds and broken pieces.
Chocolate Covered Pretzels
chocolate discs (click here to see Wilton’s Candy Melts)
sprinkles, cookies to crush and/or sparkly sugar
wax or parchment paper
Pour sprinkles into pans with sides. I used several 9″ x 11″ dishes for different sprinkles. Line baking dishes with wax or parchment paper so finished pretzels can dry.
- Melt chocolate discs in microwave according to package directions. I used several flavors and melted one flavor at a time. (Tip. I microwaved the discs a little less time than recommended and stirred to finish melting the discs. Over doing it in the microwave causes the chocolate to get “sandy” and then it’s not usable.)
- Spoon melted chocolate over half a pretzel log.
- Immediately either roll the chocolate part in the sprinkles or spoon the sprinkles on top of the chocolate. Rolling is more efficient, but the melted chocolate drips into the sprinkles and makes the sprinkles globby. I ended up spooning decorations on top of chocolate.
- Line pretzels up on baking dish to dry. Drizzle melted chocolate over the bare half of the pretzel.
After all the pretzels are decorated, refrigerate them until the chocolate has hardened. Since I made these at night, I refrigerated them overnight (although they’d probably be fine in an hour) and wrapped them the next morning.
These were such a hit, I’ll definitely be making them again!
Happy Holidays, hon!
