Gluten Free Toppings and Add-Ons
If you don't care too much for dark chocolate? It is easy to substitute it for semi-sweet chocolate, milk chocolate or white chocolate to make this taste exactly how you like it and ensure it's kid friendly, too. Add another layer of festive fun with colorful sprinkles, salt flakes, coconut flakes or even chopped nuts on top!
Can You Freeze Chocolate?
Heck ya! Chocolate is freezer friendly, but if you have a pretzel nugget inside you would need to defrost it for 20 minutes prior to avoid biting into a frozen center. After it defrosts the chocolate should maintain it's coating while inside becomes softer to enjoy.
Gluten Free Chocolate Covered Pretzels
1 bag The Greater Knead classic pretzel bites
8 ounces chopped dark chocolate (allergen safe)
2 teaspoons coconut oil or butter (vegan option)
Prepare the pretzel bites as directed on the bag. Set aside.
Place the chopped chocolate and butter/coconut oil together in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for a minute, stirring after 30 seconds. Microwave longer if needed to melt the chocolate completely.
Use a fork to dip each pretzel into the chocolate, shaking off the excess. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Allow chocolate to cool and firm up before serving.
