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 😉
