The pairing of salty and sweet flavors makes this recipe a tasty treat and is a fun way to get kids of any age in the kitchen to help. Create your own designs on pretzel twists or sticks using white or dark chocolate. Using a zip-close plastic bag to pipe the melted chocolate makes both decorating and clean-up a snap. Just spoon the chocolate into the bag and gently press it to one corner, snip off the corner with kitchen shears, and pipe as you’d like over the pretzels. Once you’re done, you can simply toss the bag into the trash.
2⅛ oz, about 28 pretzel nuggets
Semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Cover a cookie sheet with wax paper. Place the pretzels on the wax paper close together but not quite touching.
- Place the chocolate chips in a small microwavable bowl and microwave on High, stirring every 15 seconds, until the chocolate is melted and smooth, about 1 minute.
- Fill a small, resealable plastic bag with melted chocolate and carefully snip off a small corner of the bag with scissors. Squeeze bag to drizzle chocolate over the pretzels using a back and forth motion.
- Refrigerate 3 minutes or until the chocolate is firm, or allow the chocolate to firm up at room temperature, about 3 hours. Yields 7 pretzels per serving.
