Funky Chocolate Dipped Pretzels

Chocolate-dipped pretzels are yummy and easy to make.  I wanted to kick things up a notch by giving them some funky flavors.  So, for a Christmas party, I created Whiskey Praline Pretzels, White Chocolate Chili Mango Pretzels and Chocolate-covered Sunflower Seed Pretzels.  They were all really good, and it was fun to watch people try out the unexpected combinations.


  • Pretzel rods
  • Light chocolate candy melts
  • Dark chocolate candy melts
  • White chocolate candy melts
  • Dried chili mangoes, chopped into small pieces
  • Chocolate-covered sunflower seeds
  • Jack Daniels pralines, broken into small pieces


  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Melt candy melts according to package instructions.
  • Dip pretzel rods into melted chocolate, tapping off excess back into the bowl.
  • Drop mango pieces or pralines or sunflower seeds onto pretzels.
  • Drizzle with alternate flavor of candy melt if desired.
  • Place in freezer for 10 minutes or until hardened.

You can also make candy bark by blending candy melts and toppings in a thin sheet, freezing it and then breaking it up into chunks. The Whiskey Praline Chocolate Bark, pictured above, was especially tasty!
