Turtle Pretzels

Turtle Pretzels are Sweet, Salty and Delicious. There is nothing better than a salty pretzel, dipped in melted milk chocolate unless you dip the pretzel rods in melted caramel first!! Dipping pretzel rods in melted caramel then dipping them in melted chocolate, makes them extra special. Covering the pretzels with just about anything you can think of such as dried fruit, sprinkles, mini m & m’s, mini marshmallows, candy, cereal, is a fast and easy treat to make during the busy holidays. Kids especially like to help make and eat these tasty treats.

Handy Trick

Dipping pretzel rods this holiday season? Try this handy trick; use you wire cooling rack as a handy “pretzel” stand/drying rack. *see photos*  My absolute favorite way to eat chocolate covered pretzels, are pretzels coated in white chocolate and then rolled in crushed peppermint candies.

Kitchen Tip: Dipped Pretzel Rods

  • Line a baking sheet, one with sides, with wax paper.
  • Place a wire rack (mesh-style) inside lined baking sheet.
  • Carefully scrap salt from bottom of one end of each pretzel rod.
  • Holding on to smooth end of pretzel rod, dip pretzel rod into melted caramel and/or chocolate.
  • Stand dipped pretzel rod into squares of wire rack.
  • As caramel and/or chocolate drips down the pretzel rod, use your finger to wipe it back up and over the pretzel rod until caramel/chocolate is set. *See photos*
  • Sprinkle or roll in sprinkles, chopped nuts, coconut, crushed candy etc.
