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.

I make these goodies every year for Christmas and they are always a big hit with our family. I always make an extra batch for my husband and me because these go so quickly! I use creamy peanut butter instead of the chunky because of our family's preference. Still turns out great and tastes very yummy!!! :)
