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.
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.
