Can you freeze chocolate covered pretzels?
I want to know if I can freeze chocolate covered pretzels and also those pretzels you make with a Rollo and pecan melted on top?
Does anyone know?
freeze chocolate covered pretzels, but I don't recommend it and I don't think you will like the results.
This is especially true if the pretzel is not completely covered in chocolate. The moisture from the freezer may be absorbed into the pretzel and cause the pretzels to taste a bit stale.
You really don't need to freeze pretzels covered in chocolate. They have a pretty long shelf life. Just keep them in an airtight container, a cookie tin, a glass jar, etc.
Even pretzels with the Rollo and pecan melted on top should stay fresh for a couple of months if they are stored well.
If you really feel you need to freeze your chocolate pretzel candies, wrap them very well to minimize the amount of moisture that can get into the package/container. Also, when you thaw them, leave them well wrapped until they are completely back to room temperature.
My mom refrigerated chocolate covered pretzels in the past that I sent to her. I visited her a few months later and she still had some left (how she managed THAT I'll never know!). :-)
Anyway, they were still delicious, but just not as 'fresh' tasting as I think they would have been if she had left them out (but it was summer and she didn't want them to melt).
Hope that helps!
