white chocolate pretzels




It's New Year's Eve!  If you are going to a party tonight {or hosting one} here is a fun recipe that you still have time to make!   
 
Reid and I spent a rainy afternoon whipping up some of these yummy white chocolate pretzels.  They are so delicious, a perfect blend of sweet and salty.  And, bonus: they are ridiculously easy to make.  You can bust out a batch of these babies in 30 minutes.




Here's what you'll need

:: 1 bag of pretzels
:: 1 bag of white chocolate chips
:: 2T shortening
:: wax paper





Step 1 - Line a few sheet pans with wax paper

Step 2 - Set up a simple double boiler-ish thing by placing a glass bowl over a pot of boiling water {you just need a low boil}.

Step 3 - Melt the shortening in the glass bowl over the water.

Step 4 - Add the chocolate chips and stir with a rubber spatula until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth.

Step 5 - Dip the pretzels halfway into the chocolate, then set on the lined cookie sheets to cool {you want to work quickly so the chocolate doesn't start to harden {if it does, just warm it back up}




Done!

It takes about 20-30 minutes for the pretzels to cool and the chocolate to harden back up.
{If you are like me and you are already thinking about Valentine's Day, you could add some red sprinkles before they dry and pass them out as neighbor or teacher gifts!}

Then, it's time to eat!!  Yum!!! 

Meet my taste tester:






I think he likes them!  Have a few of these and you, too, could be this happy!!




Store the pretzels in an airtight container {one batch makes about 130 pretzels}.  I'm gonna guess and say that they will probably last 5-6 days, but the truth is I have no idea, because these only last a day or two in my house!! 

I also use this recipe for dipping strawberries and blueberries and they are sooo delicious.  Of course, you can also use milk or dark chocolate and you could also experiment with graham crackers or marshmallows and just about anything else!

Have fun!
