Chocolate Covered Pretzels

A has been begging me to buy FLIPZ. They are $6 for a 11oz, and for a family of 6 we would have them gone before we even made it to the car. The mini pretzels. I knew I could make them cheaper and better. I asked A, to let me try and if he didn't like them I would then buy him a bag. They were a HUGE success! I did 16oz. for $4.
A bag of your favorite pretzels
Any brand melting chocolate
A double broiler, or microwave or stove

Just melt your chocolate. Be careful not to scorch your chocolate. If chocolate is burned it will become grainy and lose that glossy look. It is still edible but visually appealing it is not. The reason is because the cocoa butter or fat has been absorbed too quickly. If you use white chocolate. This has a faster heating point and remember chocolate when melted will hold its shape. Be sure to stir until smoothe.

Melt chocolate in your method of preference. I used the microwave. Heat for 1 minute and then 15 seconds until smoothe and creamy. Stir - each time.

Dip pretzels front and back in melted chocolate. You can use your fingers or fork.
Lay out on wax paper or foil to harden. We love using pretzel sticks and making wands. Dipping the pretzel stick half way into chocolate and rolling into sprinkles, chopped nuts or crushed candy.
