Each time I read my step-mom’s crafty blog Burlap and Crystal, I’m instantly inspired. She recently posted this chocolate dipped jumbo-pretzel dessert & of course, I wanted to make them ASAP. As a treat for the weekend, I substituted regular chocolate for extra dark chocolate [ helloooo, antioxidants! ] & used mini pretzels instead of large ones. After throwing them in the freezer, my preference was definitely the dark chocolate/coconut ones. This sweet & salty crunchy treat complements any cocktail party, movie night, or upcoming Easter soirée.

+ Quick skinny tip: there’s no reason to have fifteen of these. They’re a dessert; savor the taste. Four or five is an appropriate amount!

Dark Chocolate Dipped Pretzels 

[ Recipe adapted from Burlap and Crystal ]

+ Serves 4 people

 

20 small, low-fat, [ option: gluten-free ] pretzels

1/2 of Hershey’s Special Dark chocolate bar

Rainbow sprinkles

1 handful of coconut flakes [ unsweetened ]

1 handful of chopped walnuts

 

Put coconut, nuts, and sprinkles into little bowls [ it makes it easier for dipping pretzels ]. Place dark chocolate pieces in a bowl and melt chocolate in microwave for two minutes. Remove from microwave and stir. Place back in microwave for 25 seconds. Dip pretzels in chocolate & then dip into coconut, walnuts, or sprinkles. Put them on a plate and then into the freezer for 15 minutes. Serve!

[ Side note: when you freeze the pretzels, if they’re left on a plate, they will stick. Put parchment paper underneath the pretzels. If anyone has other recommendations, I would love to hear them! xo ].

    Made these as a work-day snack to satisfy that “it’s 3-o’clock and I need sugar” feeling. So yummy with the dark chocolate!
