Chocolate Covered Pretzels

I initially posted this tutorial over at The Scrap Shoppe in April and now I'm bring it on over here to you!  If you love simple and yummy, this is the thing for you!

I'm going to share with you how to make gourmet candy pretzels!  I recently made these as hostess gifts for my baby shower and they were a huge hit!  Enough talk, let's get down to the nitty gritty:

Stuff you'll need:


Pretzels: I used Snyder's Old Tyme pretzels.  They're the perfect size and thickness.
Chocolate almond bark
White chocolate chips
Toppings: Heath toffee chips, sprinkles, crushed oreos, crushed M&Ms and crushed Reese's Pieces (or whatever floats your boat!
Colored candy melts (I used pink)
Wax paper
A bowl or dish for dipping the pretzels
Various kitchen utensils (fork, rubber spatula)

Step 1: Melt your chocolate.


Put your chocolate in a glass bowl or dish and microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until melted through and smooth.

Step 2: Dunk your pretzel.


Put your pretzel in the dish and push it down so it's fully coated in chocolate.

Step 3: Drain the excess chocolate.


Pull the pretzel out with a fork or tongs and allow the extra chocolate to drip off. 

Step 4: Place pretzel on wax paper.


This can get messy.

Step 5: Sprinkle!


Sprinkle the topping of your choice on your chocolate covered pretzel before the chocolate sets.  OR you can drizzle another coating over the pretzel.  This, too, can get messy!

Once your pretzels have set up, you can take them off the wax paper and plate them up. If you're giving them as a gifts, stack them up in a clear cellophane treat bag and tie with ribbon.


Go crazy with the combinations!  From top to bottom, my combinations are:


1. Chocolate covered, drizzled with pink candy coating
2. Candy coating covered with sprinkles
3. Chocolate covered with Reese's Pieces
4. Plain, drizzled with chocolate, white chocolate and candy coating
5. Chocolate covered with sprinkles
6. White chocolate covered with Oreos
7. Chocolate covered with M&Ms
8. Chocolate covered with Heath toffee bits
