chocolate dipped pretzels
I became addicted to chocolate dipped pretzels after my wonderful friend Lucy gifted me some from her store, Creighton's Chocolaterie. To feed my craving until I can get to their shop and purchase some more, I decided to have a go at making my own. They aren't as good as their version (working with chocolate is a lot more complex than you'd ever think!) but they are definitely helping to ease my cravings!
I used giant pretzels (which you can get from Marks and Spencers and Waitrose, and probably from lots of other supermarkets too) because they are much easier and less fiddly than the little pretzels, but you could use those if you like. I'm going to try making some different variations, with dark and white chocolate, and also some Halloween ones, which I will dip in orange sprinkles before the chocolate sets. Happy baking everyone!
