Chocolate Covered Pretzels


  • 1 12-ounce bag (2 cups) dairy-free chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp dairy-free shortening or soy margarine
  • About 24-30 hard pretzels, depending on size


  1. In a small saucepan, bring several cups of water to a boil. Line a baking sheet with parchment and set aside.

  2. Combine the chocolate and the shortening in a small heatproof bowl and set over the boiling water. (The bowl should not touch the water.) Stirring occasionally, heat until the chocolate melts completely.

  3. One at a time, drop the pretzels into the chocolate, using a fork to retrieve them and transfer them to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Repeat until all of the chocolate is used. Place the baking sheet in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes, or until the chocolate is set.
