Sweet Treat

QUESTION: What did I do last night (besides cleaning)?

ANSWER:

Oh Yes,

Chocolate Covered Pretzels

Ingredients:

  • Chocolate of your choice*
  • Small pretzels
  • Sprinkles
Directions: Line parchment paper on a counter or table. Put the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave at 30-sec intervals, mixing each time until just melted. Dip the pretzels in the chocolate (optional: lick your fingers) and put them on the parchment paper. Add sprinkles (I add them when I have about 5 dipped pretzels). When set, remove from the paper (I do overnight).

*Note: The first time I made these I used milk chocolate and it doesn’t melt that well.
I don’t really take measurements to do these but as a guideline, for half a 320g bag of pretzels, I used:

  • 1 bar (100g) Lindt 85% dark chocolate
  • 1 box (170g) Baker’s white chocolate
  • 2 leftover squares semisweet chocolate

Also,  even thought there is less dark chocolate in grams, it made about the same amount of pretzels as the white since it is less thick.
Vegans can totally make these: use only dark chocolate! It is the better one anyway; I just love the visual effect of white and dark ;).

It is definitely perfect to make as a homemade gift! Put in a beautiful box and you’re good to go!
