How to make the Football Pretzel Snacks
There are two different chocolate pretzel snacks: mini football shaped pretzels and football inspired chocolate dipped pretzel rods. Make either one for your football party or make both to impress your guests. 🙂
1. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper. Place the 36 pretzel rounds on one of the cookie sheets and set aside.
2. Add the chocolate melts to a double boiler pan and melt over low/medium heat. Stir occasionally until melted and smooth. (About 3-4 minutes). Transfer to a shallow bowl for easier dipping.
3. Next, dip 1/3 of each pretzel rod into the melted chocolate and place on the other parchment-lined cookie sheet.
4. Use a tablespoon to add the melted chocolate to the middle of each pretzel round. Be sure to fill each pretzel up to the top.
5. Allow the chocolate to harden for 30 minutes.
6. Using white decorator icing, decorate each pretzel with football laces.
That’s it! Your football pretzels are all set for the big game!
