Chocolate Covered Pretzels

I know, right?! Yummm…!

Check out that velvety rich chocolate and candy sprinkles coating those crunchy, salty rods. I made them by melting Wilton Chocolate Melts (dark chocolate, thankyouverymuch!) in my new Wilton Chocolate Pro melting pot.

It’s gonna be an amazing tool in my kitchen. I feel like Willy Wonka.

It’s crazy-simple: just plug it in. Preheat for five minutes. Pour in a bag of Melts. Let melt. Stir occasionally. Look how silky it gets. The best part? No overheating. No messy spillovers. No double-boiler stove-top disasters. Just this.

When the chocolate was ready, I took one pretzel rod at a time and dipped it into the Pot. I also used my small spoon to scoop up the melted goodness and rolled the pretzel in it. Once the pretzel was covered to my liking, I placed it on wax paper and started the next one. Each pretzel took only about 15 seconds to coat.

While the chocolate was still a little gooey, I sprinkled some candy sprinkles and even drizzled a little melted white chocolate over them. [For the white chocolate, I melted 20 Chocolate Melt chips in a small glass bowl in the microwave.]

One bag of Wilton Chocolate melts took only ten minutes to melt completely, and there was enough to coat a full bag of pretzel rods with just enough left over to make one tray of molded chocolate treats.

In less than half an hour, the Chocolate Covered Pretzels were ready to eat. Delicious, filling, and oh-so-enjoyable!

So yet again, I can only say, “Thank you, Wilton. From the bottom of my tastebuds.”

And Frankly, My Dear… that’s all she wrote!
