A chocolate Covered Pretzels Recipe is just for you, if you love the sweet and salty taste combination of chocolate and pretzels.

You can choose from an array of designs that will make your mouth water long before you take the first bite. 

I truly adore these yummy treats. They are absolutely one of my all time favorites. Unfortunately, they can be very addictive. I can't eat just one or two. I tend to get a teensy bit carried away. :) 

You can make your own homemade chocolate covered pretzels. It is as easy as can be. You can keep it simple and prepare basic pretzels dipped in chocolate, or you can get as elaborate as you like. 

Simple Chocolate Covered Pretzels Recipe

  • 1 package chocolate chips
  • 1 Tablespoon shortening 
  • Pretzels (mini, regular, or rods)

Melt chocolate and shortening in double boiler over medium heat, stirring until smooth. If you would rather, you can do your melting in the microwave, just be sure to stir every 30 seconds and do not overheat.

Allow to cool slightly. Dip pretzels in chocolate and place on waxed paper covered trays to set. Chill if necessary.

If you want to really indulge yourself, dip pretzels in or sprinkle with crushed nuts, coconut, or sprinkles before the chocolate sets. Yumm! Alternately, you may want to get fancy and drizzle a contrasting chocolate across your pretzels to really make them look spectacular. 

Store in an airtight container between layers of waxed paper. They will keep for several weeks - - if you don't eat them first! :)

You may also want to try making chocolate dipped pretzel rods. They make wonderful party favors and treats. 

This chocolate covered pretzel recipe is so simple that you can even make it with your kids for a special afternoon of fun! They will think you are super-mom. :)
