Pretzel Rods Covered in Chocolate

This is a very easy chocolate dessert/snack that all ages enjoy.  You have the salt and crunch of the pretzels and the sweetness of the chocolate.  I have a number of pretzel molds in different shapes such as Fourth of July, flowers, smiley faces, Christmas, Halloween, etc. and they are not very expensive.  Here are examples of what the molds look like:

Oct. 4, 2015 –  New Halloween mold and pretzels drizzled in caramel, cashews, white and dark chocolate…

  • 14 oz. bag of caramels (or use a pre-made sauce)
  • 2 tbsp. 1/2 and 1/2
  • 18 pretzel rods
  • nuts of your choice, chopped (I used cashews)
  • white chocolate candy melts
  • dark chocolate candy melts

Butter a large cookie sheet. In a heavy saucepan melt the caramels with the cream stirring occasionally; keep on low. Drizzle each rod with caramel, roll in nuts and place on buttered cookie sheet for about 30 minutes.

Melt both chocolates and drizzle over the caramel and nuts. I let them dry in a short glass.

You can always dribble  the chocolate down the pretzel rods and use sprinkles for decoration.  However, there is at least one member in my family that does not like sprinkles so I always use my molds.

  • candy melts in different colors at your local bakers store or Michaels, Penneys, etc.
  • pretzel rods – Meijers sells a container where most of the pretzels are straight – very important if you are using molds.

For example if you are making 4th of July chocolate pretzels melt red, white or blue in the stars; chill in the refrigerator.  Pour a small amount of melted chocolate over the hardened stars and lay down one pretzel rod.  With a spoon cover the pretzels entirely; chill.

Pop out of the mold and with a knife trim around the edges.

Below are stars, flowers and smiley faces.  There are special bags for these chocolate covered pretzels.

    • You can buy the star molds at any baking store; my local store is BakersNook.com and they do have an online site. Also, the football molds I ordered from Amazon.com. There are lots of choices and are fun to make 🙂
