Chocolate Covered Pretzels for St. Patrick’s Day

The combination of sweet and salty is one of my favorites, so I love chocolate covered pretzels.  They are very easy to make, and it is easy for kids to help out in the creation of these treats.


I decided to make a batch of St. Patrick’s Day themed pretzels last week, by using two different colors of green chocolate and sprinkles to decorate the pretzels.

The first step is to dip the pretzels in chocolate.  I wanted to make both milk chocolate and white chocolate pretzels, so that we would have a variety of colors. I used chocolate melting wafers, and dipped half the pretzels in the white chocolate and half in the milk chocolate.

Dipping pretzels in chocolate

I like to use the mini-pretzels because it is easier to dip them than big pretzels!  Then I put the pretzels on waxed paper and let the chocolate harden.  Then I melted a small amount of green chocolate wafers in the corner of a sandwich bag.

Melting Chocolate for drizzling on pretzels

I cut the tip off and started drizzling chocolate all over the pretzels, and then sprinkled sugar on the chocolate while it was still wet.

You could store them in the refrigerator, but in my house they never last more than a few hours anyway!
