Chocolate covered pretzels are one of my favorite homemade gifts to give during the holiday season. Not only are they the perfect combination of salty and sweet, but they are so easy to make and always a crowd pleaser. I usually use the mini-twists, but this year decided to switch it up with pretzel rods instead.
I picked up everything I needed at Walmart- pretzel rods, white chocolate almond bark, chocolate chips, sprinkles, and candy canes. I also needed to pick up a few last minute gifts for family and the girls’ teachers. Isabella’s teacher is a coffee connoisseur, so I decided to get her some yummy Dunkin’ Donuts® ground coffee to enjoy at home. (You can save $1.00 off on Dunkin’ Donuts® Coffee exclusively at Walmart via Ibotta.)
Walmart has a variety of flavors, roasts and seasonal items for every Dunkin’ Donuts® coffee fan. It was a tough choice between all of the delicious flavors- like Old Fashioned Donut and Caramel Coffee Cake- but I decided I couldn’t go wrong with White Chocolate Peppermint. Plus, how cute is the packaging? I love the reindeer. Totally giftable.
I knew the seasonal package of Dunkin’ Donuts® ground coffee would pair perfectly with a mug and some of my Chocolate Covered Christmas Pretzels. I keep my craft room stocked with extra baskets and ribbon and it makes it so much easier to pull cute gifts together in no time. You can wrap the preztel rods in individual treat bags or even place them all inside a large ziploc bag tied with ribbon. I tucked them inside a small mason jar to keep them upright without getting broken.
To make the chocolate covered pretzels:
- Melt 4oz of white chocolate and milk chocolate, separately. Be careful not to get the chocolate too hot, it will start to clump up. I melt for 30 seconds and then stir and repeat until smooth. It usually only takes a minute. If I have to go past a minute, I reduce the time to 15 second intervals and 50% power until smooth.
- Dip one end of each pretzel rod into the white or milk chocolate. Immediately coat with toppings. I used crushed candy cane, crushed toffee candy, mini chocolate chips, and sprinkles.
- Let set on parchment paper until chocolate is firm. You can also pop in the fridge to set faster.
