I made a bunch of these for holiday gifts. There easy, delicious, and so much fun to do. I also love to have these as a late night snack. Grab your vegan chocolate and pretzels and let’s get started!
Yield: 1 pound of chocolate covered pretzels
1 lb. (16 ounces) bag of pretzels (any shape you like)
8-12 ounces of dark chocolate chips
Garnish: (optional) crushed up candy canes, colored sugar, or sprinkles
You’ll need to set up 1-2 baking pans lined with parchment paper or silicone mats
In a microwave safe bowl you can heat the chocolate chips in 30 second intervals stirring after each time interval, until melted.
Or you can melt the chocolate over a double boiler. Using a small pot filled with 1 inch of water and heat to a simmer. Place a glass bowl on top of the pot with chocolate chips inside and continue to stir until melted through.
Take your pretzels and dip them in the chocolate, shake off excess, and lay on lined baking sheet.
once all the pretzels are dipped, sprinkle or dip pretzels in the garnish of your choice and set on baking sheets in the fridge or freezer for about 30 minutes to completely set.
Once chocolate has cooled and firmed take out and let them come to room temperature 5-10 minutes. It makes them easier to come off the trays, if they are too cold the pretzels can break.
Wrap as gifts or enjoy these treats for yourself.
