Easy Holiday Chocolate-Covered Pretzels

Instead of baking, I decided to make festive chocolate-covered pretzels for a sweet treat this holiday season. I’ve always chocolate-covered pretzels! These yummy treats are super easy, fun, and affordable to make. They are great to bring to a party for something sweet or bag up and give out to friends and family as gifts. I love making baked goods or other homemade items like pickles, hot sauce or remoulade sauce to have on hand to give out over the holidays. I give them to coworkers, frirneds, and it’s also great to have a few extras for those who you may have forgotten about 😉

All you need is pretzels, different varieties of chocolate chips (I went with white and milk chocolate), and fun holiday-themed sprinkles!

Here’s how to do it:


  • White chocolate chips
  • Milk chocolate chips
  • holiday sprinkles
  • pretzels
  • You will also need parchment paper


  • Melt milk chocolate in a bowl by microwaving and stirring for 20 seconds at a time until it’s melted. Be very careful not to over-microwave or the chocolate will seize up and not be good for dipping.
  • Dip pretzels by holding the sides and dunking them in the chocolate face down for full coverage.
  • Lay them on parchment paper and cover them in sprinkles before they dry!
  • Repeat with white chocolate
  • For the chocolate drizzles on white chocolate pretzels or vice versa, add melted milk or white chcolate to a small plastic bag and cut a small hole in the corner, then squeeze through the hole to drizzle over the pretzels
  • Wait until all pretzels are completely cool before transferring them to a cute serving dish
  • Or grab some cute holiday bags and hand them out as gifts!

Enjoy your cute chocolate-covered pretzels!
