Easy Homemade White Chocolate Pretzels

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.

Easy Homemade White Chocolate Pretzels - Crunchy, salty-and-sweet, and so easy! The perfect snack and way better than storebought!

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.

MY OTHER RECIPES

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.

Did you make this recipe?

Ingredients:

one 10-ounce bag white chocolate chips, white chocolate, or white candy melts
24+ pretzels, or as desired (see below)
sprinkles, optional

Directions:

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

  1. I only recently discovered the magic of chocolate and pretzels – AMAZING!

  2. The colored sprinkles are so happy! Totally digging these Averie!!

  3. 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!

  4. 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! ;)

  5. 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.

  6. Loved these Averie, they’re so fantastic. Especially for horderves. Totally obsessed.
