Chocolate Covered Pretzels

I absolutely love these!  For our ward Christmas party we had a competition for the best dessert, so I thought I'd give it a try.  Desserts were judged on display, holiday revelance, and of course taste.  These babies took first place!  Be sure to make extra... I came home with an empty bowl.

Chocolate Covered Pretzels
3 10oz. bags pretzel rods
24oz. pkg. chocolate (brown or white)
6 oz. chocolate (alternate color) for drizzling

Melt 24 oz. of chocolate according to package directions.  Once melted, pour into a tall skinny drinking glass.
One at a time, dip pretzel rods into the cup.  You will want to leave about 25% of the pretzel uncovered for a handle.Shake excess chocolate off into the pan or bowl that chocolate was melted in.  Lay pretzels on waxed paper to harden.  Refill cup as needed or lay it on its side and roll pretzels.  24 oz. should cover about 2 1/2 bags of pretzel rods. 

 Melt alternate colored chocolate.  Using a spoon, drizzle melted chocolate over chocolate covered pretzel rods.

Allow to cool and harden completely before removing from waxed paper.  Store in airtight container (these will last for a while).


  1. What kind of chocolate do you use? Almond bark?

    1. Kim,
      You can use almond bark or melt chocolate chips. I've done it with both and it works great either way.
