chocolate covered pretzels

here is my original go-to recipe for chocolate covered pretzels.  i make them for nearly every holiday, using different colored sprinkles to reflect the holiday colors. i usually use honey-wheat pretzels but decided to do something a little different for valentine’s day.  making these could not be easier! i think white chocolate would look extra pretty with the valentine’s day sprinkles too. 🙂

INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

  1. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a microwave safe bowl, break up the chocolate bars into small pieces so they melt easily.  Microwave on high for 30 seconds.  Remove and stir for about a minute.  The chocolate will continue to melt as you stir. If needed, microwave in 10 second increments until all is melted and smooth.
  3. Take a pretzel and dip into chocolate, using a spoon to evenly cover 1/2 of the pretzel. Shake the pretzel a bit to remove any excess chocolate.
  4. Immediately cover the chocolate with sprinkles before the chocolate hardens.  I usually do this over a paper plate, to catch the sprinkles that miss the pretzel.
  5. Place each pretzel on parchment paper lined baking sheet and refrigerate for about 10 minutes for the chocolate to harden.  Enjoy!
