  • 2 bags dark chocolate chips
  • 1 bag pretzels any variety
  • Chopped nuts for garnish
  • Colored nonpareils for garnish
  • Sprinkles for garnish
  • Coconut for garnish
  • Crushed cookies for garnish


  • Melt chocolate in double boiler over medium heat on stove top. Using tongs, or your fingers, quickly dip pretzels in chocolate allowing the excess to run off.
  • Place dipped pretzels on waxed paper lined cookie sheets. Sprinkle with chopped nuts, colored sugars or other toppings. Allow to harden. You can refrigerate them for 20 minutes to speed this process up.
  • Once hardened, remove from sheets and store in a cool location, with waxed paper between layers.


Go to town with your toppings! Whatever sort of sprinkles, nuts, chocolate. Even drizzle contrasting chocolate over the pretzels.
You'll lear your own method for dipping, which also depends on shape. Use tall glasses to dip pretzel rods or two forks for smaller pretzels in a shallow bowl.
