Easy Chocolate Covered Pretzels

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 50 miniature pretzel twists or 24 pretzel rods
  • 12 ounces chocolate chips or candy melts milk, white, dark or any combination
  • 1/2 cup sprinkles
  • 1 tablespoon shortening ONLY if using chocolate chips, you do not need to add shortening to candy melts.


Place the chocolate or candy melts in a microwave safe bowl. If you're using chocolate chips, add the shortening to the bowl. You do not need to use shortening if you're using candy melts.
Microwave in 30 second increments or until chocolate is melted. Stir until smooth.
If you're dipping pretzel rods, pour the chocolate into a tall glass and dip each rod halfway into the chocolate. Tap the rod against the side of the glass to remove excess chocolate, then coat each rod in sprinkles and set on parchment to dry.
If you're dipping pretzel twists, use a fork to coat each pretzel in chocolate, then tap the fork against the side of the bowl to remove excess chocolate. Use a toothpick to slide each pretzel off the fork onto parchment paper, then top each pretzel with sprinkles.
Let the pretzels sit until dry. Serve, or store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
