Crazy Dipped Pretzel Rods are fantastically easy and fun to make! Dip, dunk, drizzle and sprinkle as you please. These delicious sweetly salty snacks will have your family running back for more. Great to make any day of the year.
- 1 cup (6 oz.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate, Milk Chocolate or Premier White Morsels
- 1 tablespoon vegetable shortening
- 16 pretzel rods
- NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Mini Morsels and/or sprinkles, (optional)
- Additional NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Morsels for drizzling, (optional)
LINE baking sheet with wax paper.
MICROWAVE 1 cup morsels and vegetable shortening in small, dry, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute; STIR. The morsels may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted.
DIP pretzel rods about 3 inches into melted morsels, tilting bowl to easily dip. Use side of bowl to remove excess. Sprinkle with morsels or sprinkles. Place on prepared baking sheet. Refrigerate for 20 minutes or until set. Store in airtight container at room temperature. Best when eaten within a few days.
FOR A FANCY DRIZZLE:
MICROWAVE 2 tablespoons of each desired morsel flavor in small, heavy-duty plastic bags on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 30 seconds; knead. Microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, kneading until smooth. Cut tiny corner from each bag; squeeze to drizzle over already dipped pretzels on baking sheet. Refrigerate and store as directed above.
• Pretzels may be dipped and drizzled in any variety of melted morsels for different looks. For example, dip them in semi-sweet chocolate and drizzle them with melted white morsels. Or dip them in milk chocolate and drizzle them with melted semi-sweet chocolate.
• Above recipe can easily be doubled, but we do not recommend microwaving more than 2 cups (12 ounces) of morsels at one time.
Review This Recipe
I love chocolate covered pretzels. They are really easy and fun to make. It can get messy. I suggest doing it over wax or parchment paper. The kids love to help too!
Crazy for being so easy!
This recipe is so easy you can do it with your eyes closed! Well maybe with one eye closed. It is a wonderful sweet treat everyone will go CRAZY over. And they did. Thanks for the crazy recipe.
Thanks for this easy and delicious recipe. I needed a quick item to take to a party and I was able to use what I had on hand, which were semi-sweet morsels, pretzel twists and crumbled candy canes. Yum!!

These are adorable. I will have to try making these with my boys.
Quick, easy and fun!!
I made these with my nieces and sister, we had so much fun and it really quick and easy treat!! They are very adaptable for the different holidays using different colored sprinkles. I put them in cellophane bags, tie with ribbon and give them to our grandchildren and they loved them, sweet and salty, the perfect combination. YUM!! Thanks.
crazy dipped pretzel rods
I am amazed at how easy these are to make. It is a big savings over buying the pre-made variety. The taste can change with the chocolate you use, so it stays new too.
cheaper than the fancy store bought ones
My son once got some fancy pretzel rods for Christmas from a family friend and from then on wanted them. The only problem was that they were so expensive. I am so glad to see how easy and delicious it is to make inexpensive treats for my son. Thank You!
Chocolate Dipped Pretzel Rods
Simple ingredients and easy to make. Much as I enjoy dark chocolate, the white chocolate/pretzel combination may become a new favorite of mine.

Crazy Dipped Pretzel Rods
I made several batches of theses over the holidays, and some for our Sunday school classes. The kids and adults thought it was a great sweet/salty treat, and so do we. I know I will be making these many more times in the new year. Happy New Year to all my fellow bakers..
Oh man I always thought Dipped Pretzel Rods would be hard to make, but this was too easy. I love it, maybe an easy weekly or monthly treat for my family.
My boys and I make these all the time. They are easy and everyone loves receiving these anytime of the year.
I made these with my young granddaughter and they came out delicious. We put them into Christmas bags for her teachers. We used the white chocolate morsels with a teaspoonful of peppermint extract and after we coated the pretzel sticks we put chopped peppermint candies on top. Her teachers all loved them.
