Chocolate Covered Pretzels
You loved my Cinnamon Seasoned Pretzels so much, I figured you needed a Chocolate Covered Pretzels recipe to go with it! Enjoy 😉
One of my all time weaknesses is Chocolate Covered Pretzels, it’s true! If you need a favor from me, need me to be on your good side or just want to brighten my day, stop by my house with some Chocolate Covered Pretzels and we are good to go!
I honestly can’t believe that I have over 300 recipes up on the site as I’m writing this and haven’t given ya’ll a Chocolate Covered Pretzels recipe. MOMS TAKE NOTE: If you cover pretzels in nuts, unless your kid loves nuts, you’ll be able to eat these all by yourself!!!
- 14-17 Sorghum Dutch or similar pretzels
- ¼ cup finely chopped almonds
- ½ cup cacao butter
- 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
- ¼ cup raw cacao powder
- 1.5 teaspoons vanilla extract
- In a small pot, combine the butter, syrup, vanilla and cacao powder. Heat over very low heat whisking frequently until all ingredients are melted and combined.
- Turn heat to lowest setting.
- Line a large baking sheet or cutting board with parchment paper.
- In small groups, dip the pretzels into the chocolate mixture and lay on the parchment paper.
- After each group, sprinkle ⅛ cup of the almonds on top of the pretzels.
- Turn the heat off for the chocolate.
- Place in the fridge to set for thirty minutes.
- Re-warm the chocolate mixture on low. Prepare another piece of parchment paper and place the remaining almonds on a plate.
- Very carefully, re-dip the pretzels into the chocolate mixture. This time, press each pretzel into the chopped almonds on one side only. Lay to set on the parchment paper.
- Repeat for all the pretzels.
- Place in the freezer to set fully for thirty minutes.
- Makes 14-17 pretzels.
Note: You may have some chocolate left over depending on how well you dip. If you do, either make a few more pretzels or throw in some almonds and place them in the fridge- never let chocolate go to waste!
Here’s another tip: FREEZE these Chocolate Covered Pretzels in a Freezer Ziploc bag. I do this with Chocolate Truffles, Homemade Buckeyes, Chocolate Chip Cookies and my Cinnamon Pretzels, especially during the holidays. Then when I have guests that stop by unexpected I have something to munch on without the fuss. So keep that in mind as we head into the busy season!
