Crunchy pretzels covered in semisweet chocolate. A salty sweet snack.
After a get together with some friends, I ended up with a 1 pound bag of pretzels. Some people would be happy with this, but I don't like pretzels, I even pick them out of Chex mix. My husband doesn't like pretzels very much either, so I had to think of something to do with them (the bag was already opened). My solution was to cover them with chocolate. This made the pretzels much more appealing to me. Best of all this recipe is totally simple, it takes only 2 ingredients and a little time for a wonderful snack that will impress anyone.
1 cup chocolate chips
In a medium sized glass bowl melt the chocolate chips. Microwave on high for 30 sec intervals, stirring thoroughly after each 30 seconds, for about 2 minutes. Chocolate will be melted and smooth but still kind of thick.
(you will end up with a glob).
Lift the pretzel out of the chocolate with a fork and tap vigerously on the side of the bowl to let the excess chocolate drip off the pretzel.
Then slide the chocolate covered pretzel onto a sheet of waxed paper and allow to cool until chocolate hardens (I put the chocolate covered pretzels in the refrigerator for an hour or two).
Makes about 40 chocolate covered pretzels. Keep in a sealed bag, in the refrigerator if your room temperture is warm. Enjoy.
