The Perfect Dessert - White Chocolate Covered Pretzels

Chocolate covered pretzels are the perfect Christmas dessert. The combination of salty and sweet leave me munching handfuls of them. Which isn't good for fitting in my jeans but that's what New Year's resolutions are for, right?

Home made chocolate covered pretzels is an easy recipe and quick to make. Dipping the pretzels with my children just adds to the fun and the mess, but that's OK.

Here's how to make white chocolate covered pretzels:

  • 1 pkg of vanilla almond bark (I've also used the chocolate almond bark. White chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate chips also work well.)
  • mini pretzels
  • parchment or waxed paper

Step 1: Tape sheets of waxed paper to your table or work surface.

Step 2: Melt almond bark or chocolate chips in small bowls. You want to work with small batches because it hardens quickly.

Step 3: Dip pretzels in the chocolate and place on waxed paper.

Step 4: If you really want to be fancy, drizzle colored decorator's icing or sprinkles over the top of the pretzels before the chocolate sets up or hardens.

Step 5: Let your helpers lick their fingers and sample their hard work!

After the chocolate hardens place the pretzels in a dry, cool place. Metal Christmas tins are great for storing white chocolate covered pretzels. They also make a lot of noise when opened so you know if anyone is trying to sneak a pretzel.

Do you agree that white chocolate covered pretzels are the perfect dessert?
