chocolate-dipped-pretzels Use sprinkles to match your party theme. There are all different colors and types of sprinkles you can select from. You can use sugar crystals, shape sprinkles or holiday sprinkles or even crushed candies or nuts. Arrange your chocolate dipped pretzels in a container, vase, tin or wrap in clear gift bag and tie with a ribbon.


  • Pretzel Rods

  • Chocolate (white or regular)
  • Various Candy Sprinkles or crushed candies


  • Wax paper
  • Small Microwave Safe Bowl or Wilton Chocolate Melter
  • Wooden Spoon
  • Silicone Brush


    1. Use a chocolate melter if you have one.
    2. If you don't have one you can melt chocolate in microwave safe container. Since microwaves vary, you will have to adjust the time to your microwave. Start with 30 seconds, stir well with wooden spoon, add 15 seconds as needed. Heat until just melted. Chocolate should be warm not hot. Chocolate scorches very easily and will taste burnt if heated too long.
    3. Brush chocolate evenly with silicone pastry brush. Tap excess off gently while rotating for smoothest coat.
    4. For easiest way to conserve sprinkles, put a piece of foil creased in the middle into a rectangular container. Sprinkle over the foil. Simply lift foil and pour excess back into container to sprinkle next one. Do not let chocolate drip into the sprinkles.

    5. Let dry on waxed paper. Let set and harden in refrigerator for 30 min.

    chocolate dipped pretzels with sprinkles Chocolate Dipped in Regular Chocolate and Colorful Sprinkles added.

    We found the easiest way to dip was using this type of tongs and gently lowering into chocolate, lifting and turning pretzel over. While still holding with the tongs, add sprinkles on the chocolate. You can do it over a small bowl to catch or conserve some of the sprinkles.

  • These can be prepared ahead of time and refrigerated until use
  • Wilton chocolate melter

  • This pot made this so much easier! I'd definitely recommend getting this Wilton Chocolate Melting Pot if you enjoy dipping pretzels, strawberries and make cake pops. The metal portion or the pot will get hot so adult needs to be constantly monitoring if children are helping.
  • Do not get any water in your melted chocolate, this will ruin it.
  • Extra chocolate? Make some easy chocolate bark. Pour onto parchment paper for best results and add nuts, dried fruit, mini m and m's.


  • Change the sprinkle colors or if it's a holiday party you can find small egg shaped sprinkles for Easter, hearts for Valentines and so forth like Wilton Animals and Stars Sprinkle Assortment
  • Find a cup, container, tin or basket with a picture of your theme on it to display these treats.
