• This is a recipe I made for our 12 Days of Christmas {Goodies} link-up. Though it does take some time to dip the pretzels, they are super easy to make and are very allergy-friendly (depending which ingredients you choose). They make great gifts, too!

Ingredients

  • -1 package chocolate chips (I recommend Nestle's Dark Chocolate Morsels or Enjoy Life to keep it allergy-friendly, but if you don't need them to be allergy-friendly, use your favorite type: white, dark or milk chocolate)
  • -1 bag mini pretzel twists, regular or gluten-free (I recommend Snyder's or Glutino)
  • -Various toppings for sprinkling: coconut, sprinkles, crushed candy cane, cinnamon, slivered almonds or crushed nuts, colored sugar, etc. (optional)

Preparation

  1. Using a double boiler (I use a metal bowl on top of a pot of water on top of the stove at about medium to medium-high heat), melt the chocolate until fully melted, stirring occasionally, and then remove the double boiler from the heat. (Note: I do not recommend using the microwave to melt the chocolate as in using the double boiler method allows you to melt the whole package of chocolate while still keeping it warm so it stays fluid for you (you can keep the chocolate in the bowl over the hot water while dipping), but feel free to microwave your chocolate if it's easier for you. I would recommend melting the chocolate in smaller batches, though, if using the microwave.)
  2. Place a pretzel onto a fork and then scoop up some of the melted chocolate with a spoon and cover the pretzel fully with chocolate, shaking off the excess chocolate before transferring the pretzel to waxed paper to dry before serving.
  3. Immediately after you've dipped your pretzels and before they dry, you can sprinkle the tops of your pretzels with any number of toppings (keeping in mind your allergen needs, of course), such as sprinkles, colored sugar, crushed candy cane, cinnamon, slivered almonds or crushed nuts, etc.
  4. Allow pretzels to dry completely before consuming. (Note: This takes anywhere from a few hours to overnight.)
