I am so excited to share this Hot Chocolate Dipped Pretzel recipe. I can tell you that it is going to become a family favorite in no time.
As the winter gets colder, the kids and I start looking forward to having hot chocolate. Sitting around together, enjoying a cup of hot chocolate and making memories is one of my favorite things about winter. These hot chocolate dipped pretzel rods have a fantastic salty sweet taste that makes it perfect for an afternoon snack.
Because hot chocolate dipped pretzels are easy to make, you might find yourself making them on a weekly basis. While I have bought chocolate dipped pretzels in the past, once I learned how easy it is to make them at home, I started making them often and I have never looked back. I love that it is easy enough for the kids to help with. They could even make the dipped pretzels themselves.
I love this recipe so much. So many people ask me to bring them for pot lucks. It is perfect to make for a family dessert, for a get together or for a school party.
Tips to create Hot Chocolate Dipped Pretzels
- I love when I can order my supplies online and have it delivered straight to my door.
- Depending on where you live candy melts can be hard to find. You can order them online: Chocolate candy melts White Candy Melts
- While you can use a bowl for your melted chocolate when you dip the pretzels, I prefer a cup. It makes it an easy process.
- A decorating bag makes drizzling the dipped pretzel rods much easier. I love my Wilton Featherweight bags.
- Having parchment paper on hand for your dipped pretzel rods to harden is helpful. I LOVE LOVE LOVE these parchment baking sheets.
