Chocolate covered pretzels

You’ve probably done this already, but it only hit me yesterday that I could make my own chocolate covered pretzels. The best ones I had in Calgary so far were the made-in-alberta Pretzel Twists (Country Market Gourmet Foods). You can find them at the Bay for $3/ 100gr. But with $3 I can make half a kilo of my own chocolate covered pretzels! And what a nice Christmas present they would make!

Get pretzels (28 cents/100 gr) and cooking chocolate (try the Callebaut) from Superstore (bulk section). Then follow these really quick instructions:

  1. In a pan, melt over medium heat some 300 gr of dark chocolate. If you wanna be fancy, melt in a separate pan some white chocolate.
  2. When chocolate is melted, add a bit of vanilla essence and 1-2tsp cinnamon. Mix well then pour in a small bowl or cup.
  3. Quickly dip each pretzel into the chocolate mixture, then put on a cookie sheet. If using white chocolate, drizzle a bit  over the pretzels to create an uneven pattern.
  4. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  5. Make sure you don’t eat them all at once…
