Valentine's Day Chocolate Covered Pretzels DIYHow about making these easy and fun white chocolate pretzels with your kids for Valentine's Day! These are also perfect for a Valentine's Day class party. I'll be making them for my daughter's this year.
What you need:
- Pretzel rods
- White candy melts
- Pink and red jimmies
- Mini pink sprinkle hearts
- Large red heart sprinkles
- Mini white nonpareils
- Coconut oil
Melt the white candy melts in a small bowl with ¼ teaspoon coconut oil in 30 second intervals, mixing with each interval. Once you have a smooth consistency and all the candy has melted, you can start dipping your pretzel rods.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Dip each pretzel rod, one at a time into the white candy melts. Use a spoon to scoop the melted chocolate over the pretzel. Gently tap the pretzel at the bottom of the bowl to remove excess chocolate.
Note: make sure not to add too much oil to the melts, it gives the candy a waxy texture.
Place the pretzels on the parchment lined baking sheet. If adding sprinkles around the entire pretzel, do this before setting it down.
To add pink and red chocolate drizzle, melt a small amount of red and pink candy melts. Pour the melts into a Ziploc baggie and cut on the tip. Let the white chocolate chill before adding the pink and red drizzle. Squeeze the tip of Ziploc baggie to make lines across pretzel rods. Immediately add sprinkles. Place pretzel rods in fridge to set.
Wrap these pretty chocolate dipped pretzel rods with ribbon in a cellophane bags and give the gift of love, from your kitchen of course!
