Helpful tools for dipping chocolate
My favorite chocolate dipping tool is this Wilton Dipping Tool. It makes dipping just about anything in chocolate super easy and I highly recommend it for these pretzels. Also, depending on your culinary skills and needs, this Wilson set is extremely helpful too.
How do you melt chocolate in the microwave?
Melting chocolate in the microwave is easy if you go slowly. Always use a glass or ceramic bowl and chocolate that’s not old. To melt 1 cup of chocolate chips I’d begin with 1 minute in the microwave. After the 1 minute, let chocolate sit for 2-3 minutes. Then, gently stir and see if chocolate begins to melt smooth. If it’s still really solid, add 20 seconds in the microwave, then let it sit again. Often chocolate looks like it’s not melted when it really is, and you don’t know for sure until you gently stir it. If your chocolate melts but it’s too thick to work with, try adding 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil or shortening, then letting it melt and stirring it in.

You will want to use parchment paper to separate each layer of pretzels, they won’t stick together and create a big mess. Store these treats in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator.

Doesn’t melt at all did exactly what instructions said and never worked only hardened
It sounds like you overcooked your chocolate Brittany. Everyone’s microwaves are a bit different- maybe try again with less time initially?
What kind of chocolate do you use?
These days I tend to use Candy Melts because they’re super easy!

I just have a little chuckle. For my grandsons birthday in October, I made cupcakes with orange frosting. I made the pretzel ghosts and put one at an angle on each one. There were so cute. Anyway, I took the cupcakes to class, opened up the box and a little boy started crying. Those scare me, he said. Took a bit to calm him down. To cute, just had to share.,
Aww that’s adorable!
