Directions 6 steps | 25 Minutes

Step 1

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. In a tall microwave-safe glass, microwave the dark chocolate in 30-second intervals at 70% power, stirring in between each interval.

Step 2

In a second tall microwave-safe glass, microwave the white chocolate in 30-second intervals at 70% power, stirring in between each interval. (See notes.)

Step 3

Dip a pretzel rod more than ¾ of the way into the melted chocolate.

Step 4

Let the excess chocolate drip off before placing it on the prepared baking sheet.

Step 5

Top the chocolate with toppings of your choice. Let the chocolate set at room temperature or in the refrigerator. If you want to drizzle the chocolate rods, drizzle the chocolate rods after they have set.

Step 6

Enjoy at home or share as a homemade gift!


Notes:

  • If the chocolate cools too much to dip, reheat in the microwave in 15-second intervals.
  • If you run out of chocolate, add more chocolate to the glass and microwave in 15-second intervals.
