Whether you’re looking for a pretty dessert for Shavuot dinner, something to put out for Kiddush, or the perfect dish to celebrate a new baby girl, these white chocolate covered pretzels hit the spot!

Dainty little roses are made using a mold, adding the perfect touch with no advanced candy-making skills required!

Chocolate covered pretzels are a crowd please and an easy fool-proof snake for those of us who might not be great at cake or cookie decorating (yes, I speak of myself, queen of cake fails!) They can be prepped in advance, so you’re not messing up your kitchen at the last minute.

Customizing white chocolate covered pretzels for any occasions

One of my favorite thing about making this white chocolate covered pretzel recipe is that it is so easy to personalize and turn into something that’ll match any event! I made something along these lines in aqua colored using this pearl powder for Princess A’s first birthday party.

You can use dark chocolate or kosher white baking chocolate if you want to keep it parve. Dark chocolate with a white drizzle and gold accents could be gorgeous for a Bar Mitzvah. Pink and purple is gorgeous for a baby girl.

Teal is neutral and pretty, and try baby blues and silver for a baby boy, Shalom Zachar

For Shavuot, of course, we want florals, so these pink and purple white chocolate covered pretzels with little roses are spot on.

Tips for making this white chocolate covered pretzel recipe successfully

Making white chocolate covered pretzels is quite an easy task, and totally beginner friendly. But in case you’re worried, here are some tips for getting it right the first time:

  • The type of pretzel is super important. They can be found on amazon and target if you are unable to find them locally.
  • If you use too much luster dust, it will be difficult to add them to bags if using as a treat bag item. You can omit it, although it does add a beautiful finishing touch.
  • You don’t have to do the flowers, of course, but they add a beautiful touch, especially for Shavuot. You can buy all sorts of candy shapes to add if you’re intimidated with making your own.
  • Microwave your chocolate in short increments to get a smooth melt.
  • Rods aren’t as pretty but they’re easier to dip.

Equipment

Ingredients

How to make white chocolate covered pretzels

Melt almond bark or candy melts, first on HIGH for 45 seconds, then for 30 seconds at a time stirring in between.

Once melted fully, dip the front of the pretzel into the chocolate.

Allow it to set for 15 mins.

While it sets, prepare the fondant roses. To do this, start with a pea-sized amount of white fondant.

Roll it in your hand to “knead” it and then press it into the mold.

After 2-3 seconds, peel the rose out and set it aside to stiffen slightly.

If you can still see the top of the pretzel through the chocolate, dip it in again. Once it’s fully coated, melt the pink and/or purple candy melts by placing them inside a piping bag. Microwave on HIGH for 30 seconds. Prepare your sprinkles and have your roses ready.

Squish the bag to soften the chocolate, and return to the microwave for an additional 30 seconds. Once it’s fully melted, cut a small hole in the bottom of the piping bag and drizzle a zigzag on one end of the pretzel. Immediately add sprinkles and roses.

Let set fully (15-20 mins) then use a very small amount of luster dust to add some sparkle and shine.  (a little goes a LONG way). Wait about an hour before bagging to reduce risk of smudging.

Chocolate covered pretzels are the perfect blend of salty and sweet, and a decorative dessert and snack that can highlight any occasion.

Instructions

    1. Melt almond bark or candy melts, first on HIGH for 45 seconds, then for 30 seconds at a time stirring in between.
    2. Once melted fully, dip the front of the pretzel into the chocolate.
    3. Allow it to set for 15 minutes. While it sets, prepare the fondant roses. To do this, start with a pea-sized amount of white fondant. Roll it in your hand to "knead" it and then press it into the mold. After 2-3 seconds, peel the rose out and set it aside to stiffen slightly.
    4. If you can still see the top of the pretzel through the chocolate, dip it in again.
    5. Once it's fully coated, melt the pink and/or purple candy melts by placing them inside a piping bag. Microwave on HIGH for 30 seconds. Carefully squish the bag to soften the chocolate, and return to the microwave for an additional 30 seconds. Once it's fully melted, cut a small hole in the bottom of the piping bag and drizzle a zigzag on one end of the pretzel. Immediately add sprinkles.
    6. Let set fully (15-20 mins) then use a very small amount of luster dust to add some sparkle and shine.  (a little goes a LONG way). Wait about an hour before bagging to reduce risk of smudging.

Notes

  • The type of pretzel you use is super important to getting good results.
  • If you use too much luster dust, it will b e difficult to add them to bags if using as a treat bag item. Use just a bit to add some shine.
  • Try these in any color scheme to match your event. Pink is fabulous for a baby girl celebration, blue for a boy, teal or yellow is neutral. Go black and white (including a dark chocolate coating) for a Bar Mitzvah.
  • Play around with your sprinkles mixes for different results.
  • Store these in the freezer if you're in a warmer or humid climate.
  • Make these parve using dark chocolate or Kosher Parve white baking chocolate. The pretzels are also dairy so you may need to switch to a Kosher brand if you can find a Parve version.
