Tips For Executing Pretzel Rod Recipes & Dipping
After the chocolate wafers, or chips, are melted, add it to a tall glass. The depth of the glass makes it easy to dip pretzel rods, instead of using a plate.
Have wax paper ready so your dipped pretzel rods can set and harden. The wax paper won’t stick to the dipped pretzel rods.
Press any decor into the chocolate, using your hands. Sometimes the sprinkles or candy just needs a little help.
How To Give Chocolate Dipped Pretzels As A Gift
One of my favorite Amazon finds of all time are these awesome self-sealing cellophane pretzel bags. They keep your individual pretzels nice and prevent the decor items from falling off of the pretzels. Plus, they’re great if you want to sell the treats! Use the bags for gifts, bake sales and more.
How To Keep Dipped Pretzel Rods Fresh After Dipping
Once your chocolate has set, you can transfer the pretzels to an airtight food storage container. If you need to stack the pretzels, add sheets of wax paper in-between. For best freshness, enjoy the chocolate-dipped pretzels within 5-7 days of making them.
I avoid freezing my pretzels. Avoid exposing the dipped pretzels to direct heat or moisture. Any moisture will cause the pretzel to soften.
