Today was Danielle’s baby shower – yes I’m going to be an Aunt!! Instead of having a candy bar, I had an array of desserts including chocolate covered pretzels. I’ve never made these before, but it reminded me of when we were kids and my mom would make the molded chocolate every year for Christmas. And I will say, these were super easy to make and were a huge hit! And also looked beautiful. Here’s what I did.
Buy any type of melting chocolate you want. I bought white chocolate to keep to my girlie theme. Melt the chocolate slowly in the microwave, 30 seconds at a time and stir after every 30 seconds. (Don’t forget my burned chocolate debacle last fall!). Dip the pretzel stick about halfway to two thirds up in the melted chocolate, lay on a wax paper covered tray and sprinkle with your favorite sprinkles. Place in the freezer for about 10 minutes until hardened. Have some fun with it by coloring some of the chocolate and drizzle white over the colored ones. Gorgeous and so yummy!
