I just can’t say no to white chocolate-dipped pretzels. Or white chocolate-dipped anything.
Dipping anything in white chocolate automatically makes it better. Raisins, almonds, and especially pretzels.
Throw in some sprinkles and you’re automatically at the highest level of salty-and-sweet, crunchy, munchy, snacky, comfort food heaven.
The homemade version tastes a lot better than storebought, too. Fresher, crispier, crunchier, and not stale. Sometimes food in bulk bins sits around way too long. But I assure you these will disappear very quickly.
I make 2 dozen at a time, and enjoy. If I have a finite number, I eat that many. If I have a big tub, I eat that many.
I store them in the fridge because I think they’re even more satisfying when chilled. They’re totally shelf-stable and will last for weeks at room temp, but I prefer the fridge for an extra snappy crunch.
Decorate them with seasonally-themed sprinkles if you want to be festive. My daughter loved going hog wild with the sprinkles.
It’s a fun rainy day project with kids. If they don’t eat them all as fast as they dip them.

Easy Homemade White Chocolate Pretzels
I just can’t say no to white chocolate-dipped pretzels. Dipping anything in white chocolate automatically makes it better. Raisins, almonds, and especially pretzels. Throw in some sprinkles and you’re automatically at the highest level of salty-and-sweet, crunchy, munchy, snacky, comfort food heaven. The homemade version tastes a lot better than storebought, too.

- one 10-ounce bag white chocolate chips, white chocolate, or white candy melts
- 24+ pretzels, or as desired (see below)
- sprinkles, optional
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
- To a medium, microwave-safe bowl, add about half the bag of white chocolate chips and heat for 1 minute on high power to melt. Stop to check and stir. White chocolate scorches easily, do not overheat. Heat in 15-second bursts until chocolate can be stirred smooth. If you prefer to melt over a double-broiler, feel free. I prefer to melt about half the bag of chocolate at one time so it doesn’t start hardening up before I’ve gotten through dipping. As needed return bowl to micro to heat for 15 seconds to re-soften chocolate.
- Add about 5 pretzels to the bowl of chocolate, and using a fork, lift pretzels out one at a time, letting the excess chocolate run off, before placing on prepared baking sheet. After all 5 pretzels are dipped, optionally add sprinkles before chocolate sets. Repeat dipping process with remaining pretzels and chocolate. As needed, return the bowl of chocolate to micro and heat for 15 seconds to re-soften if it’s getting thick. If desired, melt the second half of the bag of white chocolate for a larger batch. I get about 2 dozen pretzels from a half bag.
- Allow pretzels to set up at room temp for at least 2 hours, or expedite by transferring to the freezer for 15 minutes. Pretzels will keep airtight at room temp or in the fridge for many weeks (or months). I prefer them chilled and store in the fridge.

If I have a finite number, I eat that many. If I have a big tub, I eat that many. <– AMEN to this! I have tried buying a lot at once and portioning and….NOPE.
Thought you could relate :)
I can’t go by the bulk bins because I want to take everything that’s inside of them!! The white chocolate pretzels are the worst offenders. It literally feels like they’re calling out my name… So I think I could only make about 5 at a time of your homemade ones. Otherwise I’m right there with you eating every single one, and I can’t run that many miles to make up for it! ;)
I am so with you. I went to Whole Foods today (rare that I go b/c it’s so $$) and their bulk bins were screaming my name. Keep.on.walking.
ahhh my favorite food on the planet Averie! you just cannot go wrong with easy chocolate covered pretzels, especially when they’re covered with cheery rainbow sprinkles!
I made these so long ago and finally my multi-colored sprinkles weren’t too out of place after all the red and green are done :) I always think of you when I use a whole bunch of bright sprinkles! And yes, way too easy to pop these down!
The colored sprinkles are so happy! Totally digging these Averie!!
Figure we need some happy little sprinkles to break out of the winter doldrums!
I only recently discovered the magic of chocolate and pretzels – AMAZING!
I agree that white chocolate makes everything better and so do sprinkles! Love your fun and colorful (and I’m sure, delicious) pretzels!!
I thoroughly approve of these sweet n’ salty and rainbow-covered beauties.
Chocolate covered pretzels are some of the best things in life. But white chocolate pretzels, they are outta this world! LOVE your version, Averie, because homemade and SPRINKLES!
There’s nothing more delicious than creamy white chocolate, and these look amazing.
The sprinkles make me happy too… like rainbows and unicorns happy. :)
like rainbows and unicorns happy. :) <--- For me too! :)
these look amazing! i love the sprinkles :)
I love white chocolate pretzels. I can’t say no. It might proved to be VERY dangerous for me to have this easy recipe!
That’s how I feel :)
I go to the Co-op sometimes and buy half dozen of the gluten free white choc covered pretzels. If I have more, I will eat them. Why are we always so in sync?! ;)
I seriously have to KEEP WALKING past the bulk bins that sell them or I will be tempted to put a dozen or so in a baggie…which I eat before I even get to the checkout line after noting the weight/price on my (empty) baggie :)
YUM!!! I looooove white chocolate pretzels and yogurt covered pretzels. I think it’s the sweet-salty contrast. These look perfect Averie!!
The salty-and-sweet does it for me every time! Happy New Year!
I think I’d eat a white chocolate dipped shoe.
I think I would too!!! And it’s SO FUNNY that you wrote that because in my original post/story/text I wrote that!!! That I’d eat a white chocolate dipped shoe. But then I thought that may be a bit much and someone would write to me about how gross that is so I took it out. But I kid you not, I had that in my post and deleted!
Yes! White chocolate pretzels are probably my favorite food ever. These look delicious!
Happy New Year Averie! And all the best in 2015!
So bright and festive! Will make them with my niece! Pinning!
Thanks for pinning! :) And all the best in 2015 to you too!
Too easy. Perfect for making with the kids I babysit for. Pinned! Happy New Year, Averie. May 2015 bring you even more happiness and joy!
If you make them with the kiddos, LMK what they think! I think you’ll be known as best-babysitter-ever :)
“I make 2 dozen at a time, and enjoy. If I have a finite number, I eat that many. If I have a big tub, I eat that many.” << Yes that. I can polish off a bag in 5 minutes. I love making my own…and you can mix up the toppings. In fact, I have some in my to-post folder (lol). Pinned!
I had made these sooooo long ago. Before Halloween! Then it was black and orange, and then red and green, and I was like well come Jan. my multi-colored sprinkles will be ‘seasonal’ again :) And yes to polishing off a whole bag! Thanks for pinning!
This girl can never resist a chocolate covered pretzel! And I’m sprinkles? I’m undone.
These would not last long in my house. Drool!
How could anyone say no to pretzels, chocolate and sprinkles. These are so fun! Happy 2015, Averie!
Chocolate makes everything taste better! What a fun thing to do with kids!
Salty, Sweet and SPRINKLES?! Is there anything not to love about these pretzels?
Methinks not. What a great idea Averie! Pinned :)
Thanks for pinning! :)
I like the idea of chilling these and the sprinkles make them so much more fun! I can’t believe how many different types/colors of sprinkles exist these days–even the grocery stores carry an interesting selection!
I know and I had made these before black and orange, and then red and green, and finally my all-purpose sprinkles were ‘timely’ and seasonal again after a very long wait to finally post these :)
Count me in! These are all kinds of adorables and they look totally yummy! Pinned!
Thanks for pinning! :)
Chocolate dipped anything is my weakness! These pretzels look fantastic, Averie! Such a fun snack!
There is nothing like chocolate and pretzels to keep me happy! I like your idea of storing them in the fridge; I’ll have to do that next time I make these!
I love the extra CRUNCH you get!
I’m with you on white chocolate dipped anything. Dip a strawberry in white chocolate and I am there, sister!
These pretzels are so cute, too. Love the sprinkles!
I can always count on you to give white chocolate the attention it deserves in recipes. Love these pretzels!
I know we both have a soft spot for white chocolate and it DOES deserve some lovin’! :)
You had me at salty and sweet and then with the sprinkles done!!! Perfect for a Superbowl party..I’m going to use the teams colors for the sprinkles.
I had made these before black and orange, and then red and green, and finally my all-purpose sprinkles were ‘timely’ and seasonal again after a very long wait to finally post these :) And I think your Superbowl themed color idea is PERFECT!
