Chocolate Covered Pretzels
Who doesn't love anything covered in chocolate. I have been looking for favor idea's for my cousins bridal shower. I wanted something "practical" if you will. And like I said - who doesn't love stuff dipped in chocolate.
First get everything you need. I used Pretzel Bags - found them at Joann's - they were only a couple of dollars.
Pretzels - try not to go cheap on them. Buy more than you need - because they will break!
I counted out my pretzels and put them in a bowl so I didn't have to keep digging in the bag.
And Chocolate - duh!
Wax paper, Parchment paper, freezer paper.
So - set up a "double boiler". Fill in the bottom pan with water - put your other pan on top - and dump your chocolate in.
And keep stirring until it's melted.
Next pour yourself a glass of beer. Ok - just kidding - but - if it helps! You will need a nice tall glass of some kind.
See - you need it to pour the chocolate in!
So you can dip the pretzel in! It will give it some nice coverage without a lot of work!
Then lay it on the wax paper to dry.
So do them all and let them dry. I learned at the last batch - if you "twist" them as you take them out of the cup at the lip part of it - it creates a really cool look on the pretzel - and saves you some chocolate!
Then get another color - put them in a little container - and do about :30 sec bursts in the microwave until melted.
Put the melted chocolate in a ziploc bag.
Then clip one of the corners.
Drizzle it along all the pretzels - don't they look pretty!
You can see the top layer all lays together across all the pretzels.
Break them apart.
And then just clean up the edges - the chocolate breaks right off.
I put two in each little bag - a white chocolate with pink, and milk chocolate with blue. The bags came with twist ties included.
All packaged and in a box ready for the shower on Saturday!
Linking to these parties!
