Chocolate✔ Pretzels✔ Sprinkles✔
Like everyone, I crave sweet treats. Almost all of the time.
After dinner, I usually head straight for my stash of pretzels and chocolate. There have been times when I’ve had to have my boyfriend or roommates hide the pretzels and chocolate from me because I’m addicted (I’ll admit I have no self-restraint). There’s just something about that salty and sweet flavor in every bite that gives my stomach butterflies.
Chocolate covered pretzels are one of my favorite treats to make (and eat! See above) because they can be made for any occasion and the topping options are endless! For instance: almonds, pecans, walnuts, drizzle, mini chocolate chips, toffee bits, sprinkles, etc! The options are gloriously endless!
But today we’re going to make some chocolate dipped pretzels for Valentine’s Day! Everyone loves them! They’re pretty, tasty, and crazy easy to create. At the end of the day, these chocolate covered pretzels are so impressive and satisfyingly delicious.
Below are three different ways you can create easy Valentine’s Day chocolate covered pretzels.
I prefer to use Wilton white chocolate melting morsels because their melting point is lower and the coating always stays perfectly hard at room temperature. For the pretzels, I used Rold Gold’s tiny twists, Rold Gold pretzel rods, and Snyder’s mini pretzels. And for the sprinkles, I picked up a variety of Valentine’s Day sprinkles. The more the merrier! Have fun with it! However, for the mini pretzels (third example in video), I made sure to buy the larger heart sugar candies. I got mine from Michaels.
Once the chocolate covered pretzels are complete, I’ll either leave them out in a bowl for my roommates or I’ll package them in a bag, two of each type of pretzel, to hand out. You can easily put them in a Ziploc bag and they’ll be just fine.
This sugary gift is perfect for your Valentine, your friends, co-workers, favorite baristas, esthetician, hairstylist, anyone, really! Don’t forget about yourself! You’ll enjoy them too!
