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.

Ingredients  

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

Instructions 

  • 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.

  3. “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!

    1. 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!

    Methinks not. What a great idea Averie! Pinned :)

  7. 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!

    1. 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 :)

  8. Chocolate dipped anything is my weakness! These pretzels look fantastic, Averie! Such a fun snack!

  9. 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!

  10. 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!

  11. I can always count on you to give white chocolate the attention it deserves in recipes. Love these pretzels!

  12. 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.
