Every Christmas, we get sort of obsessed with melting dairy-free chocolate and covering just about everything in it.
Crackers, graham crackers, cherries, marshmallows. It’s all fair game, as long as it’s milk-free of course.
And Enjoy Life chocolate chips (affiliate) are usually our go-to for this madness.
Probably one of our favorite chocolate covered treats is chocolate covered pretzels. When we use rods, these are very easy for the kids to do, and we make good use of Pillsbury Frosting Christmas sprinkles on these!
To get the perfect dipping chocolate, I heat our chocolate over the stove on low heat and thin it with a little coconut oil. You can use a microwave for melting and vegetable oil for thinning if you prefer. You can even skip the oil if you’d like.
CHOCOLATE COVERED PRETZELS
1/2 cup dairy-free chocolate
1 Tbs coconut oil
Melt chocolate and coconut oil over medium heat on stove or in microwave. Make sure no water gets into the mixture. Stir often until melted and take off heat.
To dip large pretzel rods, I like to pour the melted chocolate into a glass jar. Super easy for the kids.
Prepare wax or parchment paper on a cookie sheet or cutting board.
Dip pretzels into chocolate and top with sprinkles.
Set pretzels on wax or parchment.
Once pretzels are done, put them into the freezer to set.
Once set, remove from freezer and enjoy. Keep extras stored in an airtight container.
