Chocolate Dipped Pretzel Hearts

Who needs more Valentine’s treat? Me!! Always me! Just dip heart shaped pretzels into candy melts and chocolate and give to loved ones on Valentine’s Day. They’re the perfect shape and a yummy treat. Top them with red and white sprinkles for an extra cute touch. But be careful- these little treats are addictive! Calories don’t count on Valentine’s Day right?? That’s what I thought.

Supplies for Chocolate Dipped Pretzel Hearts:

  • tiny twist pretzels
  • melted chocolate
  • melted candy melts, found in the baking or cake decorating isle. I used white almond bark then added red food coloring, but they do have red and pink candy melts available.
  • wax paper
  • toothpicks/skewers

Melt your chocolate and candy melts each in separate bowls, in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between.

Then using a toothpick or skewer to hold the pretzel, dip it into the chocolate or candy melts. Lay each one on wax paper to solidify. If you want to add sprinkles, do so while the chocolate is wet. Also, you can put these in the fridge for faster drying results.

Then once they’re solid, you can either dip them again in a new color or place them in a bag ready to give away. I love how cute these look together in a treat bag. So colorful and full of chocolate salty goodness. Your loved ones will be so grateful for this special Valentine’s Day dessert.

  3. I asked my 3 yo what he wanted to take to preschool for Valentine’s Day. He said “pretzels.” I wondered how I was going to make pretzels Valentines-y. Thanks so much for the great idea!

  4. I love chocolate dipped pretzels. I once made some that were pink with green dots for a baby shower. It took FOREVER, but everyone thought they were great.
    At my blog, we are hosting a “Sweets For My Sweetie” link-up on Friday (for a recipe swap) and we’d love for you to join us with this recipe. Just wanted to pass along the word!
    I love reading your blog!

  5. How are you making all these yummy treats and still staying on track for biggest loser??? Those look so good! i want to make them, but then i would just eat them . . . :)

  6. This looks delicious! We are having a “snow” day in our sunny southern town. My children will LOVE making your pretzels today.

    Thank you!
