These chocolate covered pretzels are a salty sweet treat that are both fun to make and looks impressive!



Wilton Candy Melts (or any chocolate you like)

Sprinkle (small heart shaped for cuteness overload)


Begin by melting your chocolate according to the package directions. 

Two things not to do:  Over cook the chocolate or add water.  

I usually cook my chocolate for one minute in the microwave at 50% POWER, then stir.

Then they usually are barely starting to melt.

Now microwave for another 30 seconds at 50% power.

I usually stir it really well, and then go for one more spin in the micro.

Now you dip the pretzels one at a time into the creamy chocolate.

Gently tap the pretzel against the side of the bowl, before holding it over your sprinkle area or dip it in a bowl with sprinkle.

Then place on parchment paper, pretty sprinkle side up, and let them dry.


Chocolate covered pretzels will last for up to 2 weeks when stored in an airtight container at room temperature.

I don’t recommend freezing or refrigerating the pretzels as condensation will form on the chocolate layer when it’s chilled.
