Chocolate-Covered Pretzels

These chocolate-covered pretzels came from my grandma, who loves to make candy and treats for my students. I have followed in her footsteps and make these for people at work and for other family members. —Aimee Worth, Fair Oaks, California

    I used regular large twisted pretzels. I dipped them half way so a nice salty hit on one side, Janet. VFE

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

    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)

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

    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.

    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.
