Satisfy your sweet tooth (and your salty tooth!) simultaneously with this chocolate-dipped pretzel recipe. Cocoa nibs give these chocolate-dipped pretzels an extra layer of chocolaty flavor.
2 dozen dipped pretzels
Active Time: 15 minutes |
Total Time: 45 minutes
1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
24 pretzel twists, preferably whole-wheat, or 12 pretzel rods, broken in half
2 tablespoons cocoa nibs (see Tip)
Line a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper.
Place chocolate chips in a small glass bowl. Microwave on Medium for 1 minute. Stir, then continue microwaving on in 20-second intervals until melted, stirring after each interval. (Alternatively, melt in the top of a double boiler over hot, but not boiling, water.)
Dip half of each pretzel piece into the melted chocolate. Let the excess drip back into the bowl. Place the dipped pieces on the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle cocoa nibs over the chocolate. Refrigerate until the chocolate is set, about 30 minutes.

Tips & Notes
Make Ahead Tip: Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
Tip: Cocoa nibs, which are bits of roasted and hulled cocoa beans, are crunchy and have a pure (unsweetened) chocolate taste. Some brands of nibs are coarser than others. You can find them at large grocery stores, gourmet retailers or online at chocosphere.com.
