Recipe Ingredients

Chocolate pretzels ingredients on a table.

Chocolate – Use a good quality brand of white chocolate chips and make sure they are fresh. Old chocolate can have weird flavor and it won’t melt as well. 

Pretzels – Use mini pretzels or mini pretzel snaps. Pretzel rods will taste amazing as well!

Coconut oil – Oil is used to make the chocolate looser and easier to dip. You want to use a light oil that is also neutral-tasting. Virgin or refined coconut oil or avocado oil are great options.

Toppings (optional) – These white chocolate-covered pretzels are delicious plain or you can top them with sprinkles, chopped nuts, or crushed candy canes. 

Variations

  • Not a fan of white chocolate? Use semi-sweet, milk chocolate, or dark chocolate chips instead. 
  • Instead of coating the entire pretzel, dip only half in chocolate.
  • Assorted sprinkles can be used simply for fun or to make these white chocolate pretzels holiday or birthday-themed. 
  • Chopped nuts. Make sure to chop the nuts small enough so they will stick to the melted chocolate and won’t easily fall off once it has set. 
  • Use two different types of chocolate. One chocolate for coating the pretzels and the other for drizzling. 

Pro Tips

Use medium-low heat because white chocolate has a low melting point. Any higher and the heat can burn the chocolate. 

White chocolate will thicken as it cools, so just heat it up back in the microwave or on the double boiler as needed. 

Use two forks to dip the pretzels. One to dip the pretzel and the second one to push the pretzel off the first fork. 

Use a neutral flavored oil like coconut oil to mix with the chocolate. Olive oil will make the chocolate a little thick and you’ll need to use double the amount of oil used. Avoid using butter because it will thicken the chocolate into a paste and give it a weird texture. If you don’t like the flavor of coconut oil use refined – it doesn’t taste coconutty like virgin coconut oil does.

Coating and Decorating The Pretzels
