I have been playing in the kitchen a little bit. In my opinion- almost anything can be improved upon if it’s dipped in chocolate. I mean, you say the words “chocolate dipped…” & you have my full attention. I especially love the holiday season because it gives me the creative push I need to make some really fun ideas- almost all of which involve chocolate in some way. So I decided to take some large pretzel sticks & give them a little gourmet feel by decorating them.
These were so much fun to make.
Quick little snack – my kids LOVE them.
Make sure to leave a little part of the pretzel without chocolate so you have a place to hold it.
Candy Cane Pretzels
- 1/2 bag White Chocolate Candy Melts
- 1/4 cup Red Chocolate Candy Melts
- 1/2 tsp Peppermint Extract
- 8-10 Large Pretzel Sticks
Prepare a large baking sheet lined with parchment.
Lay out your pretzels on the prepared baking sheet.
In a small glass bowl add your white candy melts
Microwave on high 1-2 minutes- stirring every 30 seconds (do not over heat)
Once the chocolate is liquified - add in peppermint extract & stir well to incorporate.
Take your pretzel & hold it over your bowl & spoon the chocolate over the pretzel to coat
Place back on parchment lined baking sheet & continue with remaining pretzels
In another small bowl melt your red chocolate candy melts the same way you did the white.
Once liquified- transfer to piping bag with small round tip
Pipe lines over pretzels in a drizzle pattern. This does not have to be precise at all - get creative
Allow to cool & harden for about 1 hour before serving or packaging.
