I love how pretty this sweat treat looks with just chocolate! It can easily be adapted by simply using different colored chocolate or adding candy.

Try using: homemade caramel drizzle, flaky sea salt, semi-sweet chocolate chips, crushed candy canes, or different colored candy melts.

TIPS FOR MAKING THESE CHOCOLATE PRETZELS:

  • Use Wilton candy melts for best results, the wafer chocolate melts the best. Add one teaspoon of coconut oil to other melted chocolate chips to help them melt and pour better.
  • Lay the chocolate covered treat on a wax paper lined baking sheet for easy moving and transporting before the chocolate has hardened.
  • Place the chocolate in the fridge or freezer to completely cool before serving.

How long do chocolate dipped pretzels last?

Store these yummy treats in a large freezer bag or airtight container for up to one month at room temperature. They can also be stored in the fridge to prevent the chocolate from melting or in the freezer for months.
