The key to great tasting chocolate pretzel rods is to not cheap out on the chocolate. I used Ghiradelli semi-sweet chocolate chips
Chocolate Pretzel Rods Tutorial
You will need:
1 bag pretzel rods
chocolate sprinkles, nuts or white chocolate chips
Place chocolate in a double boiler and melt.
For easy dipping, find a tall glass or vessel in which to pour your melted chocolate.
Place chocolate pretzel rods onto a wax paper lined baking sheet. The chocolate will pool underneath it, creating a flat side to the pretzel. This is normal and nothing to fret about. Also, you can shave off any excess chocolate with a knife once it has set.
Add chocolate sprinkles or nuts. I brought the chocolate pretzel rods outside into the cold air and let the chocolate set just a wee bit before I added the sprinkles, that way the sprinkles didn’t slide off the top. You can also drizzle them with white chocolate, but make sure you let the semi-sweet chocolate set first. If you are giving these as wedding favors, simply place inside a cellophane bag and add a tag.
