Yummy and easy, these chocolate covered pretzels are great for any special occasion. Involve children in the process by allowing them to dip and/or decorate! Wrap them up in pretty bags or containers for a special home made gift.


Time: 30 minutes for 9 dozen pretzels (plus hardening time for chocolate)
Age: Any Age
Level: Easy

Material:
  • 225 g (8 ounces) semi-sweet baking chocolate
  • Mini pretzel twists
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • Sprinkles or white chocolate for decorating (optional)
  • Baking trays
  • Parchment paper

  • Method
  • Cover the baking trays with parchment paper.
  • Melt chocolate and vegetable shortening together in a double boiler.

  • A proper double boiler is not required. I simply used a metal mixing bowl in one of the my sauce pans.

  • Remove from heat and allow chocolate to cool slightly.
  • Throw in pretzel twists, coat completely with chocolate and remove with a fork. Allow excess chocolate to drip off and place on parchment covered tray.


  • The amount of time you allow for dripping of the excess chocolate is up to you We only took a few seconds.

  • If you are decorating the pretzels, sprinkle while the chocolate is still wet.


  • If you are using white chocolate to drizzle over the dark chocolate, allow the first layer of chocolate to cool completely.
  • Allow the chocolate to harden. We placed our trays in the freezer for a couple of hours.
  • Remove from the parchment paper and package as you wish!

  • Note: It is best to keep the pretzels in a cool place such as a fridge to ensure the chocolate stays hard.
