Valentine's Day is just three days away and maybe you are looking for an easy treat to make for someone special in your life. May I suggest chocolate dipped pretzels?
All you need is chocolate chips and pretzels to make someone's day extra happy.
First, melt the chocolate in 30 second increments on HIGH in your microwave, stirring between each session, until the chocolate is fully melted.
Next, dip pretzels, using kitchen tongs to pull them out and gently tap them free of excess chocolate.
If you care to, you can sprinkle the top while the chocolate is still wet.
Or you may keep dipping until your chocolate is nearly gone. Then comes my favorite part, taking the broken pretzels and mixing them with the remnants of chocolate.
Not pretty enough to give away, you will have to eat this tasty concoction yourself. This is the sacrifice you must make as official chocolate dipper. Never has something so broken and ugly been transformed into something so beautifully delicious.
Cool the dipped pretzels in the refrigerator for 15 minutes or so. Then, combine confectioners sugar (about 2 tablespoons) and a touch of milk (about 2 teaspoons) to make a quick and easy frosting.
Pour the frosting in a plastic bag, snip a very small hole in one end and pipe some white hearts on top.
Happy Valentine's Day!
