Homemade Christmas Candy - Chocolate Covered Pretzels

Chocolate Covered Pretzels
 
Chocolate covered pretzels are just about everyone's favorite during the Christmas season. The combined taste of a pretzel with salt and chocolate is so delicious, and there is nothing like the homemade kind. A tray of white, milk, and dark chocolate covered pretzels makes a nice treat to bring to co-workers for a holiday party or to any party  just because you feel like being cheerful and giving.

     My favorite..., chocolate covered pretzels! This homemade candy works best with any of the melted chocolates; milk, dark, or white. However, sometimes you may need a second coat while covering the pretzels with white chocolate, if the first coat is too thin and you can see the brown in the pretzel. Use the pretzels that taste best to your liking. I only use Herrs pretzels (Only found on the east coast of the US.) and Merkens chocolate because that is what my family likes the best. If the pretzels have a lot of salt on them rub some off. As you dip the pretzels some of the salt will go into the melted chocolate making the chocolate taste salty by the end process.

      Melt the chocolate wafers to the correct consistency. Turn off the heat and remove pan from stove. Make sure your chocolate is not too hot and thin because it will not cover the pretzel correctly. Using a fork or chopstick take a pretzel and dip it into the melted chocolate. Let it drip for a little bit in the pan. Then transfer to a piece of wax paper to harden.

 

 
     Once the pretzels are nice and hard you may package them. Chocolate covered pretzels look nice arranged on a pretty antique long dish with Christmas greenery surrounding it. Or put five or six in a bag and tie up with a pretty ribbon and mini ornament or greenery. These little packages make nice gift toppers, stocking stuffers, and teacher's gifts.
