OK, I thought I would start out by sharing three things about me: (1) I am obsessed with soft pretzels. If the menu has a soft pretzel on it, I am eating it. (2) I am addicted to sweet + salty. I can't have sweet without salty, or salty without sweet. Yes, I've fallen into that trap. (3) I love chocolate covered pretzels, especially white chocolate covered pretzels; that is how I roll.
Now let’s get down to the sweet + salty of Patriotic White Chocolate Pretzels.
These patriotic pretzels are AWESOME! They are easy-peasy to make with their three ingredients – pretzels, white chocolate, and sprinkles. They are patriotic with their white chocolate and their red and blue sprinkles which makes them perfect for Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day. They are beyond delish and will satisfy your need (and mine) for crunchy pretzels, white chocolate, and sweet + salty.
Pretzels are just better with white chocolate and white chocolate is just better with pretzels. #justsaying #redwhiteandblue
Chocolate Melting Tips
The key to melting chocolate is low & slow, no water or alcohol, and chocolate chips are not for melting.
Low & Slow. Heat chocolate slowly and stir slowly. You do not want to over-heat chocolate, and in the same respect, you cannot over-stir chocolate.
No Water or Alcohol. Chocolate seizes up if it gets wet. This is also why not all food coloring is suitable for coloring white chocolate.
No Chocolate Chips. Chocolate chips are designed to hold their shape, not to melt. Use baking chocolate or cocoa-flavored candy wafers for melting.
Now go get your Patriotic White Chocolate Pretzels on and satisfy your sweet + salty hunger.
Patriotic White Chocolate Pretzels
- In a microwave safe bowl, break up chocolate squares for easier melting. Microwave on medium heat for 30 seconds. Remove and stir slowly. Replace in microwave for 15 second increments until candy wafers are completely melted.
- Dip pretzels into melted white chocolate using a fork or dipping tool and lightly tap to remove excess chocolate; transfer to lined baking sheet and immediately add patriotic sprinkles.
- Allow Patriotic White Chocolate Pretzels to sit until chocolate hardens. Eat & Enjoy!
