MY REVIEW

I usesd smaller and thinnesr pretzels. Had difficulty eating the sourdough pretzels. Otherwise good recipe.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 9, 2012

I only gave it 4 stars because of the pretzels used, otherwise it is a 5 star recipe when used with thinner pretzels or my favorite, pretzel sticks! (also use melted milk/white chocolate chips for coating)

MY REVIEW

Tom Sturgis pretzels work the best, wouldn't make these with any other pretzel :)

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 7, 2011

I used Synders of Hanover Olde Tyme pretzels...they are the best for chocolate covered. I also use choc chips with shortening added per the type of chip. White Chocolate needs 1 Tbsp for every cup, and Semi Sweet is 1 Tbsp for every 2 cups.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 24, 2009

Store bought sourdough pretzels are so hard that you can't even enjoy these. No one wanted to eat them as they were so messy, and hard that they were not enjoyable. If you make these do so with small bite sized pretzels or pretzel sticks then at least they would be eatible.
