Tips for Valentine Chocolate Covered Pretzels

  • Make sure the chocolate or candy melts are completely melted before dipping the pretzels.  
  • If the melted candy or chocolate is not smooth, add about ½ tsp of vegetable oil. This makes it more smooth as it will coat the pretzels better.  
  • Make sure that you do not overheat the chocolate or candy melts. This will make it difficult to spread so watch it closely while melting.  You definitely want to make sure to do 30 second intervals. Feel free to also use a double boiler.
  • Use the melted chocolate or candy melts immediately.  It will harden back so be ready to dip the pretzels once it has been melted.
  • When dipping the pretzels in the chocolate, I recommend using a fork. Then tapping it gently on the side of the bowl.  The excess chocolate will run off through the prongs on the fork so it works better than a spoon.  
  • Cover your cookie sheet in foil to allow the pretzels to dry.  You can also use wax paper or parchment paper as well. 
  • Allowed a few minutes ( approximately 15 minutes)  before drizzling with the other colors. This make sure that they do not mix together on the pretzels. 
  •  Make sure that the pretzels are completely dried before moving for storage.
