If you are planning to make a batch of chocolate covered pretzels for your next family gathering or party, it is important to know how to store them properly. This will ensure that your chocolate covered pretzels last for a long time and taste fresh, making them perfect for any occasion!
You can store chocolate covered pretzels for a few weeks at room temperature. However, if you want to preserve them for longer periods of time, you may want to consider storing them in the refrigerator. This will keep them moist, which can cause them to go stale quickly.
Before you begin dipping your chocolate covered pretzels, be sure to gather all the tools you need. You will need a tall, narrow jar or drinking glass, a bowl that isn’t too deep, and some melting wafers.
To melt the chocolate, place it in a microwave-safe bowl and heat it in 30 second intervals until it is smooth and creamy. You can also use a double boiler (a bowl nestled in top of a pan of boiling water).
2. Add A Tablespoon Or Two Of Shortening To Your Melted Chocolate:
If your melted chocolate is too thick for dipping or excess chocolate isn’t easily tapped off the pretzels, add a tablespoon or two of vegetable shortening to thin it out. This will help the chocolate set up smoothly and allow you to easily dip your pretzels.
