Chocolate Covered Pretzels Recipe

Chocolate Dipped Pretzels - Gifts or Party Food

I tried out this Chocolate Covered Pretzels Recipe for Christmas gifts and for some party food.

Dipping pretzels in chocolate is a fun activity to do with kids - a bit messy though. I gave my daughter some pretzels, a baking tray and two chopsticks for holding the pretzels to dip them, then let her get to work.

It was a great time for all, we enjoyed eating the chocolate covered pretzels and giving them as gifts. Maybe we'll adopt this as a new Christmas tradition.

For something different try dipping the chocolate covered pretzels in coconut, sprinkles or confectioners sugar. Colored sprinkles are so pretty and make the coated pretzels into a great gift.

Chocolate Covered Pretzels Recipe

  • Finely chop 100g good quality chocolate (70% cocoa) and melt it with a teaspoon of butter or shortening in a small pot over a double boiler.
  • Remove from the heat and stir until it is smooth with no lumps.
  • Lay out 2 large baking trays and cover each with baking paper.
  • Take a 60g bag of pretzels and using 2 wooden skewers or toothpicks , dip each pretzel in the chocolate.
  • Shake off any excess chocolate and place the pretzels on the covered baking trays.
  • Leave to set for 20 minutes.
  • Transfer the pretzels to fresh baking paper, leaving the excess chocolate behind.
  • Allow to set for at least 2 hours.
  • Store in an airtight container (not in the fridge).
