Patriotic Pretzel Bites

1 (1 lb.) bag of pretzel twists

1 bag each of red, white, and blue chocolate melts (Wilton preferred)

A glass microwave proof bowl for each color of chocolate melt

wax paper

silicone utensils

3 forks


  • pour the chocolate melts from one of the bags into one of your microwave proof bowls 
  • Melt chocolate according to the package directions 
  • *I like to put the chocolate into the microwave for 1 minute – stir until smooth and if needed, pop it back in for 30 more seconds – stir until smooth
  • Place down sheets of wax paper for your chocolate to set up 

Making Chocolate Pretzel Bites

  • One at a time, dip about 20 of the pretzels from the bag into the melted chocolate

Making Chocolate Pretzel Bites

  • Use your fork to scoop the pretzel out – tapping any excess chocolate off of the pretzel
  • Transfer the chocolate covered pretzel onto a sheet of wax paper
  • Do not use all of the chocolate in the bowl. Leave some for decorating
  • Continue until you have dipped all 20 pretzels
  • Repeat with each color of chocolate

  • If needed, place the remaining chocolate into the microwave to melt it again

Making Chocolate Pretzel Bites

  • Insert a fork into the chocolate, hover over the chocolate pretzels while waving the fork back and forth to decorate them
  • Do the same thing for each color until all of the pretzels have contrasting chocolate colors
  • Let the chocolate dry


Care and Storing your chocolate covered pretzels…

  • Chocolate covered pretzels should be stored in an airtight container in a cool place, but not in the refrigerator
  • When serving, keep pretzels out of extreme heat, so the chocolate will not melt
