Peppermint Pretzel Dippers Recipe

"A friend fixed these treats and gave them away in pretty canning jars," recalls Michelle Krzmarzick of Torrance, California. "The combination of sweet, salty and peppermint is just right," she adds. Try dipping them in white candy coating and rolling them in crushed candy canes for variety.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon shortening
