Candy Cane Chocolate Dipped Pretzels
My daughter goes to a cookie exchange party every year at Christmas time. This year we decided to make this easy and delicious treat.
Here are the ingredients we used. I like to get the pretzels that don't have the salt on them, but I'm sure the salted ones will be just as tasty!
Unwrap all the candy canes and put them in a large bag with a seal. Put the bag on the counter, and with the back side of a wooden spoon, break up the candy canes into little bits.
Heat the semi sweet chocolate chips in a double boiler. Stir frequently. You will need to add either vegetable shortening or oil, a tablespoon at a time until the chocolate becomes thin enough for dipping.
Dip the pretzels into the chocolate one at a time until they are coated. We found that using a fork was the best way to do this. After dipping, lay them out on waxed paper to dry.
After the chocolate has dried, melt the white chocolate and drizzle it over the chocolate dipped pretzels. Immediately sprinkle each with a little bit of the candy cane.
Allow to dry before transferring them to a serving platter. Enjoy!
If you love mint and chocolate together you will love these Candy Cane Chocolate dipped pretzels. They remind me a little of Thin Mints but with a little crunch from the candy. Very easy to make and a festive treat to serve at Holiday parties, or to give as gifts! Enjoy!
