 Chocolate Covered Pretzels

Have you ever been in a situation where you need to come up with a nice gift at the last minute? No? Oh….well then it must just be me. I feel as if I’m always looking for that last minute gift. A few years ago my mom decided to make chocolate covered pretzels for a family Christmas gift and they were a huge hit! They were so easy that I stole the idea and have made them for myself…I mean as gifts for friends.

I like to use a semi sweet chocolate instead of a milk chocolate for the base. To me, the milk chocolate is a little too sweet. You can leave it at just the chocolate, but I like to drizzle a little white chocolate on top. It makes it look just that bit more impressive. I also found these chopped mixed nuts and sliced almonds and thought that I needed some of those on these pretzels as well.

The quality of the chocolate and the pretzels are very important…though the chocolate is of course first priority. I recommend picking a brand of pretzels you trust and then picking a higher brand of chocolate, such as Ghirardelli or Bakers. I tried a lower quality one time thinking chocolate is chocolate…and they turned out just OK. It was the first time I had to take some pretzels home. Don’t make my mistake!
