Chocolate covered pretzels are not an easy to find product in Australia. I am yet to find them! So please tell me if you know where you can get them. I’d be forever grateful.
When I say pretzel here I mean the small, crunchy ones – not the big soft ones. So I went about creating them myself, and was inspired by Pinterest to make them Halloween themed too.
What you need:
- Gluten free pretzels – I purchased the Eskal brand ones from Coles. Schar also make them, check online, IGA’s or gluten free stores for stocks.
- White chocolate – I used Nestle melts.
- Orange food gel – you need a gel (not liquid) or the chocolate texture can split and it’s not ideal. I purchased mine from Spotlight.
- Green topper – I used rainbow sprinkles (labelled gluten free) purchased from my IGA, you could also try funfetti circles (Spotlight), green gluten free jubes that are trimmed or green caramel m&m’s chopped.
Seriously if you haven’t check out Spotlights cake decorating section it is awesome! Heaps of gluten free products you can’t find elsewhere.
Get melting and enjoy!
- 75g gluten free pretzels
- 150g white chocolate
- 2-4 drops orange food gel
- 24 green toppers (rainbow sprinkles)
- Melt the white chocolate according to the packet instructions. Before it is fully melted, add the food gel colouring. This helps to incorporate it better. Mix well. Add more colouring to your desired colour of orange.
- Using a fork dip pretzels into the melted chocolate turning to coat. Remove with fork, and tap on the side of the bowl to get rid of excess chocolate.
- Place on a wire rack. Top with green topper.
- Allow to set and enjoy!
