Christmas pretzels are a staple in this house and we will find any excuse to dip something in chocolate and call it a treat! YUM!!

It really isn’t officially Christmas…until chocolate covered pretzels. I LOVE chocolate covered pretzels. These are so festive and fun and so easy to make for a large group. Great to take to work, to parties, to make a bunch and send home with your kids (wink, wink mom!)…they’re so good!

Make: Dip each pretzel stick in the melted chocolate and lay on the wax paper. Melt the rest of the chocolate and add in food coloring. Drizzle the colored chocolate over the pretzels with a spoon.

Finish: Let the chocolate set before enjoying or storing.

They’re not just for Christmas!

These chocolate covered pretzel sticks are one of my favorite Christmas treats, but you can easily enjoy them all year round. They are super cute for baby showers or wedding showers…you can change up the colors and use whatever works for the occasion!

The perfect sweet and salty snack

There’s just something about chocolate covered pretzels that gets me every single time. They are so addictive! I like to use white chocolate which is sweeter and really works with the pretzels, but you can use milk or dark if you prefer. It works well either way!

How do you store them?

Let the chocolate on the pretzels set completely and then you can transfer them to an airtight container. You can keep them at room temperature or in the fridge and they will keep well for around 2 weeks. Ours always disappear pretty quickly though!

  • You can also melt the chocolate in a stovetop in a bain marie. If you melt it in the microwave be sure that you do it in increments so that it doesn’t burn.
  • Let the chocolate completely set before storing them.
  • Variations: Try them with milk or dark chocolate and use different colors depending on the occasion.
