"I've been making these for the past few years and they are absolutely wonderful. They are very time consuming, but worth it. I find using a metal baby spoon to put on the peanut butter and carmel works very well. I also use a package of white almond bark and a package of semi sweet chocolate chips as my dipping chocolate."

"does anyone know if this would work with milk chocolate chips or chocolate wafers?"

"These were amazing! The only issue I had was that the chocolate kept hardening before I could dip all the pretzels and I had to keep re-melting it. Next time I will use a slow cooker to keep the chocolate melted."
