Chocolate Dipped Pretzels

The salty/sweet flavor combination of chocolate dipped pretzels is a special treat that is not found very often in everyday foods.   You can adjust the saltiness based on the pretzel rods you use and the intensity of the sweet flavor can be adjusted based on the type of chocolate you use.

While the chocolate is warming and melting lay out some wax paper.

When the chocolate is fully melted and blended in with the heavy cream it is time to begin coating the pretzels.

 

For coating the pretzel rods in chocolate, I am using a test tube.¬† To keep the chocolate warm and soft for coating I have the test tube in a hot water bath.¬† If you don’t have test tubes handy, I suggest placing the pretzel in the melted chocolate and spooning additional chocolate over the pretzel to coat it to your liking.

The test tubes are a great size and shape for coating the pretzel rod.  Place some chocolate in the test tube (not too much Рyou need to leave room for the pretzel). Dip the pretzel in the chocolate to coat.

 

If you don’t have test tubes use your narrowest, tallest glass or similar container.

Lay the pretzels on the wax paper to set.

 

Once the chocolate is set they are ready to eat.  If boxing these, it is a good idea to keep wax paper between layers of pretzels to prevent them from merging into one another.
