I just made these for Christmas gifts. I made the pretzels using pretzel rods, put them in a vase with a ribbon around it, and it looked so pretty. A few suggestions: 1) Be sure to use semi-sweet chocolate (I think). I used Trader Joe's milk chocolate chips and it didn't melt! I then used Ghiradelli semi-sweet chips and had no problem. 2) I don't suggest putting the chocolate in a glass beacause it was too think on the pretzels. Instead, I used a wooden spoon and spread the chocolate on each pretzel rod. 3) If you use toppings, be sure to sue VERY small pieces. I found that nut topping, sprinkles, and smashed peppermint worked the best. I tried using heath bar and mini-chocolate chips and they were too big. 4) Finally, if you do use topping, I would spoon it on instead of turning the rod in a pile of chocolate. When I rolled it in the nuts, sprinkles, etc the chocolate fell off and chunked up the mixture. Overall, a great idea! Read More

Love this recipe! I noticed a lot of reviews said that they would begin to melt when they were not in the fridge. I add a small amount (1-2 tsp) of shortening to the white chocolate when melting it - this helps to thin it a little bit and make it a little easier to work with as well as to help with the melting problem. Dip the pretzels put on wax paper-covered baking sheet and pop it in the freezer to harden. They won't melt at room temp! Enjoy this delicious recipe! Read More

These are VERY yummy!! Do know that even though it says to use a 15 oz. bag of pretzels this amount of chocolate will cover probably only 1/5 of them. I melted the chocolate along with 1 Tbsp. of shortening in the microwave for 1 minute and then stirred until smooth. The shortening keeps the chocolate smooth and it won't stick to the bowl. Then I sprinkled them with crushed candy cane and drizzled a little semi-sweet chocolate over the top. Not only are they delicious but they look beautiful! Next time I'll double the amount of chocolate so I can make more pretzels.:) Read More

I use this recipe with pretzel rods and it turns out great! A quick tip: put the chocolate in a tall glass and dip the pretzels in that way. It makes a more even appearance and you get more chocolate on it. I will also drizzle a different flavored chocolate over the pretzels along with crushed toffees. Read More

I used milk chocolate chips instead and melted them in a cup in the microwave with just a tiny sliver of butter. The consistancy was perfect. It just can't get any easier. I will definitely do this again. DELICIOUS! Read More

These are great to make and give as Christmas gifts. I use the large pretzel rods and add candy sprinkles colored sugar sprinkles or drizzle with dark chocolate. They are always a big hit! Read More

I doubled the recipe and then followed another users idea of adding a little margarine. I put the dish on the table and gave each of my 4 kids some pretzels wax paper and a chopstick for removing the pretzels then let them go to work. It was a great time for all we enjoyed eating the treats and giving them as gifts and we've decided to adopt this as a new Christmas tradition. =) Read More

A little time consuming but turned out great. Chocolate is a good consistancy. I halved the chocolate and colored one half green and one half red I had left over squares so I drizzled white over the tops of the red and green pretzels. Festive for the holiday goody table! Thank you Read More

Tasted fantastic! Used large breadstick style pretzels and dipped about 1/2 of the stick. Everyone loved them. Next time I think I'll try them with crushed nuts. Easiest recipes ever! Read More
