How To Make Chocolate Covered Pretzels In this video, I’m showing you how to make easy chocolate covered pretzels! Chocolate dipped pretzels are a tasty sweet treat that is especially wonderful for Christmas or other holiday parties and they’re so easy to make it doesn’t make sense to spend a lot to buy the pre-made ones at the store!

Ingredients two 4-ounce quality semi-sweet chocolate bars (113g each), finely chopped* 1 bag honey wheat pretzels (or 4 cups pretzel shapes of choice) sprinkles
Instructions
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside. 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. 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.

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.
Place each pretzel on parchment paper lined baking sheet and refrigerate for about 10 minutes for the chocolate to harden. Once chocolate is set, cover tightly and store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
' Notes Chocolate: Avoid chocolate chips, which are not meant for dipping. You can find chocolate bars right next to the chocolate chips in the baking aisle. They are sold in 4 ounce bars. I like Bakers or Ghirardelli brands.
Swirled Chocolate: For swirling the chocolate as shown in a few of these photos, melt 4 oz of semi-sweet chocolate and 4 oz of white chocolate separately. In a shallow bowl or paper plate (I used a paper plate), pour your semi sweet chocolate into a puddle and top with the white chocolate. Swirl your pretzel twist into the chocolates and top with sprinkles. I demonstrate with semi sweet chocolate, but you can use other coatings like dark chocolate, milk chocolate, mint chocolate or white chocolate and you can also use other toppings besides the colored sprinkles I used. Use anything that sounds good to you, but colored sugar, coconut and ground nuts are all tasty options!
