  • 8 oz dark, milk or white chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp coconut oil or shortening
  • 24 large pretzels
  • ½ cup Sprinkles, chocolate chips, and nuts, Optional


  • Line 2 sheet pans with parchment paper, foil, or a Silpat non-stick mat
  • Place the chopped chocolate into a medium heat-proof bowl. Melt in the microwave on high for 30 seconds, remove, and stir.
    Continue melting in 15-second increments, stirring after each heating, until chocolate is completely smooth. Add coconut oil or shortening and stir to combine until smooth.
    Alternatively, put the chocolate in a small saucepan and melt over low heat, stirring constantly, until smooth.
  • With a large fork, or candy dipping tool, dip each pretzel into the chocolate until completely covered. Lift and let excess chocolate drip off into the bowl.
  • Transfer dipped pretzel to lined baking sheets and cover with sprinkles or nuts, if using.
  • Allow to dry for about 1 hour.
  • Store in air tight container for about 2 weeks, or package in cello bags as gifts.


Do not use chocolate chips for this recipe. Chocolate chips have other ingredients in them and you will not get a shine, nor will the chocolate firm up, as well.
