Chocolate Covered Pretzels Recipe

    chocolate covered pretzel sticks on a plate

    Whether you’re looking to add a seasonal touch to your party spread or going for a specific holiday theme, these chocolate covered pretzels are one of the easiest ways to do it. Sweet, salty, and a cinch to make, we love making these pretzels for all kinds of social functions.

    These chocolate dipped pretzel rods, or chocolate dipped pretzel sticks, are the kind of snack you can display at any kind of gathering. Whether they’re for a watch party for Monday night football or a Halloween party in your child’s classroom, these pretzels can be customized and decorated for any occasion.

    Making these chocolate covered pretzels is as easy as dipping your pretzels into dark chocolate or white chocolate, then covering them in sprinkles. If your favorite football team’s colors are blue, then dip the pretzels in white chocolate and cover them with blue sprinkles.

    If you’re making chocolate covered pretzels for Halloween, then simply dip these in dark chocolate with orange sprinkles, or dip them in white chocolate and do both orange and black sprinkles. There are so many variations to try out with this recipe, and you can even switch up the sprinkle shapes and styles too.

    Once the chocolate on these dipped pretzel rods has dried, simply display the pretzels in a mason jar, small bucket, or simply display them on a serving plate for guests to grab from and snack on.

    1. Line a baking sheet with a sheet of parchment paper or wax paper. Place a large tray or bowl next to the baking sheet.
    2. Melt the chocolates in the microwave according to the instructions on the package.
    3. Dip the pretzel rods into the melted chocolate, using a spoon to help coat the pretzel rods as high as you want to go. Traditionally, chocolate covers about 3/4 of the pretzel rod.
    4. Before the chocolate has set, hold the pretzel rod over the large tray or bowl that you had taken out previously, and drop sprinkles all over the chocolate-covered surface. The tray or bowl will catch the extra sprinkles and make clean-up easier.
    5. Place the pretzel rods on the prepared baking sheet and allow them to rest there until the chocolate has set and they're dry. Place the finished pretzel rods in a small bucket, mason jar, or plate when you're ready to serve.
