Ingredients

Scale
1x 2x 3x
  • 1 bag of pretzel rods
  • 1 lb bag of milk or dark chocolate chips, divided
  • 1 lb bag of caramel baking pieces

Instructions

1

Temper Your Chocolate

Temper chocolate using a double boiler. Divide the bag of chocolate chips, melting ⅔ of the bag until liquified. Make sure the chocolate is melted slowly and does not exceed 115° F.

2

Remove Chocolate from Heat

Remove liquid chocolate from heat and move to a separate bowl. Vigorously stir in the reserved ⅓ bag of chocolate chips until everything is melted.

3

Do a Dip Test

Test your temper by dipping a pretzel into the chocolate and placing it in the refrigerator to cool for 5 minutes. If your chocolate is drying without streaks or spots, then you are good to go.

4

Temper a New Batch if Needed

If the chocolate has streaks or spots, then you’ll need to start over and temper a new batch of chocolate.

5

Take a Dip

Line cookie sheets with parchment paper, dip half of the pretzel rod in the chocolate and then the same half into the melted caramel.

6

Chill

Line the sheets with dipped pretzel rods and place each batch into the refrigerator for 1 hour.
