Recipe by gailanng
READY IN: 25mins


  • 1
    1 cup milk chocolate or 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 16
    pretzel rods, pretzel twists, whole-wheat pretzel sticks or 16 rippled potato chips
  • Optional Decorative Toppers
  • semi sweet miniature chocolate chip
  • white chocolate miniature chocolate chip
  • candy sprinkles, of choice


  • Line baking sheets with wax paper.
  • Microwave 1 cup morsels and vegetable shortening in small, dry, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute; STIR. The morsels may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted.
  • Dip chips and/or pretzels into melted morsels, tilting bowl to easily dip. (I use a measuring cup.) Use side of bowl to remove excess. Place on prepared baking sheets. Sprinkle with Toppers. Refrigerate for 15 - 20 minutes or until set. Store in airtight container at room temperture. Potato chips are best when eaten within a few hours of preparation.
  • Pretzels and chips may be dipped and drizzled in any variety of melted chocolate for different looks. For example, dip them in semi-sweet chocolate and drizzle them with melted white morsels. Or dip them in milk chocolate and drizzle them with melted semi-sweet chocolate. Don't forget the sprinkles--that's the best part!
