Chocolate Peppermint Pretzels

Chocolate Peppermint Pretzels are oddly satisfying.  Salty, sweet and minty is a great combination.  If you like the idea of a homemade treat, but aren’t up for turning on your oven, this is absolutely perfect!

Chocolate Peppermint Pretzels

I absolutely love having Christmas up in our house!  I’m a classic red, green and white kind of decorator.  There is something about it that brings me back to my childhood.
I also love having plenty of Christmas goodies around the house including plenty of candy canes!  I can’t resist making a batch of these tasty Peppermint Pretzels every year.  They are a perfect addition to my goodie plates that I pass out to friends.

Dipping things in chocolate can be a little unnerving.  You have to get the temperature and it can seize up really easy.  When it comest to anything that will be mint flavored, I really like to use Ande’s Baking Bits.  It’s silky smooth, not waxy and sets up really well.  It’s not as temperamental as regular chocolate.

How To Dip Pretzels

Whenever you dip anything in chocolate the best tip I can give you is to prep everything you can before even melting the chocolate down.  Chocolate cools down pretty quickly so if you are sprinkling other ingredients on it, you want it to be ready to go.

Place the peppermint crunch in a bowl and make sure to melt your chocolate in a deep enough bowl.  When you dip your pretzels in it, you want it to be deep enough that you can flip the twist and have it be completely coated.

I like to use baking sheets lined with parchment paper for my pretzels to set on.  Once the chocolate is set and you’re wanting to transfer your items to a plate or goodie bag, the parchment paper makes this part easy.
