Final Fantasy ~ Dark Pretzel

Delicious stack of chocolate. 
It may be a dark pretzel but it makes me happy just thinking about it.

You will need:

Pretzel Rods or Large Twists, makes 24
I used rods, for personal preference. When I buy the large twisted pretzels, they are often smashed.
Bag of melting chocolate or 2 bags of chocolate chips
Oreos, crushed

Set the chocolate on a double boiler and melt.
Remove from heat when melted.

Crush Oreos into small pieces.

I used a spoon to pour the chocolate over the pretzel rod. My pan wasn't big enough to dip.
I also wanted a bit of uncovered pretzel to hold onto.

Working quickly~
Lay chocolate pretzel onto crushed cookies and roll or toss cookies on top of it.
Move to drying tray or lined pan.
This does go fast, if you hold the pretzels to long the cookies will slide off.
We can't have that!

I let mine dry for about an hour and a half. I watched to 45 minutes shows of Netflix.
Yes, I go by Netflix time.
And that were completely dry. After then posed for the photos. I boxed them up and refrigerated them.
Don't freeze them. That is how chocolate gets weird and develops white spots. I don't know why, it just does.
They will be fine for weeks in an air tight container in the fridge.



  1. The white spots are where the cocoa butter has separated from the cocoa powder a bit.
