  • Dip each pretzel into melted chocolate, covering about two-thirds of the pretzel. Let excess chocolate drip off. Roll dipped pretzels in pistachios to coat. Press a few cherry pieces into the chocolate on each pretzel. Place pretzels on a clean sheet of waxed paper; let stand until chocolate is set.

Tips

Tip: To toast nuts, spread in a shallow baking pan lined with parchment paper. Bake in a 350 degrees F oven for 5 to 10 minutes or until golden, shaking pan once or twice.

Storage: Layer pretzels between waxed paper in an airtight container. Cover; seal. Store at room temperature for up to 1 week, or freeze for up to 3 months.
