Totally Random Chocolate Dipped Pretzels

"I don't quite remember were I got this one but I use to make them a lot and there great for a short notice party or sleep over! There also fun to make and you can add almost anything after dipping it in chocolate! You can use a microwave or a special chocolate melter to melt your chocolate, just make sure if your using a microwave to keep an eye on it ;) You also may need more chocolate depending on how many you want to make. If you want to make then mint chocolate dipped pretzels just add about a teaspoon of mint extract to the melted chocolate =)"

  1. Fun idea!! I used white Ghirardelli chocolate chips and big salted pretzel rods. Had fun with Valentine's decorations but this could be done for every holiday, I love it!! Love the flavor of sweet and salty together and with a crunch!! White chocolate is pretty testy sometimes when melting and it seized on me, I think because of the big chunks of salt from the pretzels or I might have gotten some steam in it from keeping the heat on while dipping and decorating....If this happens to you, just add about a teaspoon of tasteless oil like canola and it should smooth back out for you and melt down again. I used a box with "X" holes cut into it to harden my chocolate in the fridge. It worked out great!! Thanks for posting a great and easy idea to make fun treats for any holiday!!!!
  2. Great! Made these with my teen daughter for the holidays - they were easy and fun to make.
  3. I just finish making these, I just used regular pretzels and only dipped them half way. As a result, I had some melted chocolate left-over. Rest assured it did not go to waste, because I had just finished cutting up a pineapple and proceeded to dip it into the chocolate and enjoyed, until the chocolate seized up lol. Wonderful Simple recipe! I will make this again.
  4. I made these at a friend's house over the holidays, and I was surprised at how easy and delicious they were! She makes them every year and gives them away as gifts. However, you have to make a lot extra or you won't have enough to eat yourself while you make them.
