Here’s a quick Video to show you how I made these Pretzel Flowers:


First, Preparing the Chocolate and getting ready…

  • If you are using assorted colors as I did, pour about 1/2 cup into a microwave-proof glass bowl
  • *If you are only using one, then use the whole bag 
  • Melt the chocolate in the microwave for 1 minute, stir with your spatula, and pop it back in for 30 seconds – stir until smooth
  • Transfer your melted chocolate to your work surface
  • Set out a large sheet of wax paper
  • Gather your other supplies, pretzels, yellow chocolate melts, and fork 

Dipping the pretzels

  • Now, Place a pretzel into the chocolate and push it down with your fork, turn it around to coat it
  • Then, Use the fork to lift the coated pretzel up to the edge of the bowl 
  • Finally, Tap the fork several times to release the excess chocolate

Hardening the Dipping Chocolate

  • Now you can Gently place the pretzel onto the wax paper 
  • Then, Repeat the process with 3 more pretzels, placing the pretzels down in a circle formation with the tops facing outward

  • *I placed mine so the side tips of the pretzels rested on top of each other in a circle, which you can see in the the image above

  • Finally, place the yellow chocolate melt in the center of the pretzel circle
  • Let the chocolate harden by simply drying at room temperature. This should only take a few minutes
  • That’s 1 flower
  • Repeat making more flowers until most of the chocolate is gone out of the bowl
  • Do the same process with all of your chocolate colors, except the yellow chocolate melts

*Optional – Adding a stem to your Flower chocolate-covered pretzel 

Adding a paper straw stem to chocolate covered pretzel flowers

  • If you want to add a cute stem…
  • Place a mound of melted chocolate on the top portion of the paper straw – about an inch down from the top, about where the center of the flower will go
