Chocolate covered pretzels are one of my favorite treats. I love the combination of sweet and salty flavors and I find the crunchy texture to be ever so satisfying.  So I starting thinking, what better way to celebrate National Pretzel Day than with Brix Chocolate Covered Pretzels?

Our Brix Chocolate Covered Pretzel recipe is easy, delicious and fully customizable to your tastes and dietary needs. Following a gluten free diet? Simply use gluten free pretzels. Dairy free? Replace the Milk chocolate with our Extra Dark Chocolate.

I like to set up a toppings bar and make several types of chocolate covered pretzels, but feel free to use the toppings you enjoy best. Or, go old school and just stick with the chocolate! Either way, you’ll be enjoying this delicious treat before you can say Happy National Pretzel Day (well, not really, but you get my point). BONUS: Enjoy with your favorite glass of wine.

Ingredients & Instructions:

8 oz each Brix Milk Chocolate & Medium Dark Chocolate                 1 Bag Pretzels (or rods/sticks)

Optional toppings: sea salt, chopped nuts, sprinkles, coconut, crushed candy, peanut butter

Line a baking sheet with wax paper or parchment. On a cutting board, fracture each Brix bar and place into separate microwaveable safe bowls. Microwave each chocolate variety on med-high power in 45 second increments, stirring on each break until chocolate is melted (or you can melt the chocolate in a double boiler).  Using a fork (or your hands for rods), dip the pretzels into the chocolate one at a time and place on the wax sheet, working quickly to avoid having to rewarm the chocolate. Sprinkle with your desired toppings and allow to harden at least 30 minutes. Refrigerate to speed up the hardening process if you live in a warm climate or are experiencing high humidity. Enjoy!

Note:  Pretzels can be stored in an airtight container with wax paper between layers.
