Salty & Sweet: How to Make Festive Chocolate Coated Pretzels


Salty or sweet? Can’t choose? Luckily, you don’t have to with these chocolate-covered pretzels that offer a bit of both. Our Editorial Director loves this deceptively simple recipe because the end result will make you look like a pro in the kitchen. Don’t worry–you don’t have to reveal that these little morsels of goodness really only took you 30 minutes to make.

one bag of pretzels (choose your shape)
two bags of chocolate chips
assorted holiday sprinkles

1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. Over medium heat melt the bag of chocolate chips in a double boiler. If you want a shortcut use your microwave. Stir the chocolate chips to ensure they are all melted.

3. Dip each pretzel with desired amount of chocolate, let the excess drip off and then place the pretzel on the baking sheet. Add holiday sprinkles if desired.

4. Repeat the above step, and then place baking sheet in the fridge if you want the chocolate to harden faster.
