Instructions for Ingredients for Halloween Chocolate Covered Pretzels 

*To even it out, dip about 2 dozen pretzels per color. If you have any leftover pretzels, you can keep going. You should end up with about 10 dozen chocolate covered pretzels 

  • One bowl at a time – Melt the chocolate melts. I like to microwave the chocolates for 1 minute, stir with with a silicone spatula. If the chocolate is not quite smooth yet, go ahead and microwave for another 30 seconds and stir until smooth. Be careful. If you microwave too much, the chocolate will seize and become unusable. 
  • Set out all of the sheets of wax paper to let the pretzels dry on

Storing your Halloween Chocolate Pretzel Bites 

  • You can make these pretzels up to a couple of week in advance. Even without a container, at room temperature, the chocolate pretzels should stay crisp for at least 10 days. If you place them into an airtight container, you chocolate covered pretzels stored at room temperature can stay fresh for months.  




That’s it! Happy Halloween.
