Peanut Butter Chocolate Pretzels

"The treats are easy for any age to make but pretty enough to share with friends. You can add color sprinkles to customize them for any holiday or occasion," relates Marcia Porch of Winter Park, Florida.

    Okay this is what I did with the chocolate. I heated it in a double boiler and dipped away. Worked great.

    I had the same problem as another reviewer, where the chocolate was so thick no excess could drip off. Not sure how to correct that other than maybe adding another teaspoon of oil. The globbed on chocolate just makes the pretzels look sloppy, not pretty for holiday gift giving. I didn't have any problems with the peanut butter chips. As far as taste goes, there's no way to screw up a chocolate covered pretzels, so of course they were delicious!

    When I melted these in the microwave, the chocolate was so thick it didn't "drip" off any excess. So I thought I'd add a teaspoon of water to try and thin it out. BIG MISTAKE! The chocolate became hard instantly. I haven't had a fail in the kitchen in years. I ended up saving the chocolate by making fudge with it. How do it get a thinner mix?

    I did not care for the semisweet chocolate----I am going to try using milk chocolate and see if they are better. Also, I could not taste the peanut butter drizzle at all---it did make them pretty though :)

    I made these last Christmas. My son loved them and requested them again. I don't usually like making dipped pretzels but these turned out perfectly.
