Baking Fail: Chocolate Covered Pretzel Edition

This week we are celebrating Halloweek here at Charleston Crafted! Check in every day to see how we are decorating and baking for one of my favorite holidays!

A lot of stuff that I make turns out really well and I love sharing it with you. However, sometimes stuff turns out as a huge flop. Sean loves Flips candies and I thought that I could make some Halloween themed chocolate covered pretzels for a festive snack. I had never made them before and have to say, they are not as easy as they look.

What you need:

White chocolate (I used Ghiradelli chips)

Pretzel twists or rods

Sprinkles or candy toppings

What you do:

Melt the chocolate. I poured some chips into a bowl, and microwaved for one minute.

I stirred the chocolates and microwaved them for another minute.

Then I dipped the pretzels into the chocolate and placed on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper.

Then I sprinkled them with a variety of Halloween sprinkles. In the end, they tasted all right, but they were super ugly. They turned out a tad better if I only dipped half in the chocolate – otherwise, they got all lumpy and splotchy.

Sean said they tasted good either way- so if that’s what counts then they weren’t a total fail 🙂

Have you ever made chocolate covered pretzels? What did I do wrong?
