Chocolate Covered Pretzels
Elegant looking chocolate covered pretzels that are great for anytime of the year. They would make a great snack for New Year’s Eve too. Drizzle the chocolate covered pretzels with a contrasting chocolate for a professional look. Place them into a pretty tin or decorative bag and give them away as gifts, nothing says love like a homemade sweet. These are a great addition to any party.
Ingredients – If you don’t have
coconut oil, olive oil works too.
Lay a large sheet of waxed
paper flat on a counter.
Using a double boiler over medium low
heat, add the chocolate and coconut oil.
If you don’t have a double boiler, place a heat
proof bowl on top of a pan filled with water.
Stir frequently until smooth and creamy.
Remove double boiler from the burner,
both pans together. Be careful not to
get any water into the chocolate or it
will be ruined. Add about 8 pretzels
to the chocolate.
Using a large slotted utensil, toss the
pretzels and completely coat them
with the chocolate.
With a few pretzels on the slotted utensil,
tap the pan gently removing the excess
chocolate. Using your fingers place the
chocolate covered pretzel onto the waxed
paper making sure they do not touch each other.
Let the chocolate set up then melt the white
chocolate and drizzle over the pretzels.
Repeat the process with the white
chocolate only drizzle with chocolate.
Let dry thoroughly then store
in an air tight container.
NOTE: I found it necessary to add olive oil to the white chocolate
to get the consistency I wanted after the chocolate melted.

NOTE: I FOUND IT NECESSARY TO ADD A LITTLE OLIVE OIL TO MY WHITE CHOCOLATE TO GET THE CONSISTENCY I WANTED.
