Boy it’s been a tough couple of weeks (months). I’ve been really under the weather and the medicine I am taking is knocking me out. I really dislike not feeling like myself. I know that life ebbs and flows, and that everyone has ups and downs, but it’s sure crappy when it’s happening to you. I am finally feeling better. Not 100% yet, but one day at a time. I’m so happy to be adding a new post (or 2). I have a growing list of summer projects, but for now I am happy to be posting Chocolate Covered Pretzels. They are so easy and fun to make.
8 oz. semi sweet bakers chocolate (chocolate chips don’t work as well)
½ tablespoon butter
Pretzels (I buy the half size rods)
Toppings (mini-M&M’s, sprinkles, colored sugar, finely chopped nuts)
Using a coffee mug, add all the chocolate and microwave for 1:00. My microwave usually needs another 30 seconds. Microwaves vary, so after the initial 1 minute, you can try 10-second intervals. The chocolate will not be fully melted, but if you put a spoon into the chocolate, it will be nice and soft when it’s ready. Add the butter and stir until smooth. I like to use a silpat lined baking sheet, but the paper plates with a waxy finish work well too. Get ready to dip and decorate! When all finished, put the bedazzled pretzels in the refrigerator to harden. I read on a website, forgive me for not remembering who’s idea this is, but she suggest adding milk to the leftover chocolate in the mug for an amazing Parisian hot chocolate!
My son and I made these at home!
So proud of my FM classes! You guys did great!
