Recipe Tips

  • Try using different chocolate types to create variety:  molding chocolate is available in milk, dark and white chocolate  
  • To use two or three different flavours of chocolate on each pretzel, dip the pretzel in your chosen base chocolate and drizzle second flavour on top.  
  • If dipped pretzels have set before you had a chance to decorate, dip a small brush into melted chocolate and paint the back of each ingredient to secure. Let set, wrap and enjoy.
