Chocolate Covered Pretzels

31 May

There is something about a double broiler…specifically an all metal one passed down from my mother…that reminds me of my childhood.  What to do with semi milk chocolate cubes close to expiration and a bag of pretzels?  Combine them of course!  As I stood by the stove sipping my red wine, waiting for the chocolate to become soft, I felt a little smug that something so yummy could be so easy to prepare.  And there is something really cool about using a double broiler.  Like you are somehow a true baker for thinking of it. 

The essentials: fork for dipping pretzels, wax paper lined cookie sheet, wine for sipping.  Small metal tongs would have been much much better.And it’s that easy.  I love the sweet and salty taste.  I would recommend using a finer chocolate as these were only mediocre compared to what I’ve tried in the past.  Not bad for using up some about to expire ingredients though.  I threw some sprinkles at a couple to get smiles from the kids 😉
