Chocolate Covered Pretzels
HOW TO PREPARE CHOCOLATE COVERED PRETZELS
1-2 packages of Pretzel Rods or Twists (approximately 40 per bag)
1-3 Packages of Chocolate Melts (Colors of your choice)
You’ll need to purchase extra bags of pretzel rods because you don’t want to use the broken rods. Microwave 1 C of chocolate melts and 1 Tsp of shortening into a microwaveable bowl. Microwave in 30 second increments until chocolate melts are soft (but not completely melted). Stir until chocolate is thin like pudding.
You’ll need a tall container (cup/glass, etc) that is tall as or taller than the pretzel rods. Fill the container with the melted chocolate. Dip each pretzel rod so that 3/4 of rod is covered with chocolate. Place rod on a sheet of parchment paper (wax paper). When sheet is full, place in refrigerator until chocolate is stiff.
To decorate pretzels, line chocolate covered pretzels closely on parchment paper. Fill a Ziploc bag with melted chocolate (preferably a sandwich size). Cut a small hole at the bottom corner of bag and drip chocolate across pretzel until decorated to your liking. Place in refrigerator until stiff.
