These were delish! I used white chocolate for one batch and milk for another! Both were great, but I LOVED the white chocolate ones. These were so fun ot make, and I know I will be making these for my holiday plate this year! Thanks!

Thanks so much for sharing Karen- My dh loves these pretzels sooo much- so I decided to make a tin full to send overseas to him. I made a batch with dark chocolate chips, another with milk chocolate, and the last with white chocolate. I had to taste a few and they were AWESOME! Thanks so much for sharing, I am sure he will ask for lots more as soon as he gets them!
