Black and White Chocolate-Covered Pretzels

I was really proud of these guys. They’re also a little more labor-intensive than I was expecting.

They’re easy, but they take a long time because they happen in stages. This is a good project to settle into while watching a movie.

Also, they’re totally not Christmas-specific. You can tailor them to any holiday! Like Valentine’s Day, for instance.

Black and White Chocolate-Covered Pretzels


  • 1/2 bag small pretzels
  • 1 bag chocolate chips (16 oz) or semi-sweet chocolate callets
  • 1 bag white chocolate chips (16 oz)
  • 1 tbs coconut oil (2 if using chocolate chips instead of callets)
  • sprinkles of choice


Melt chocolate callets (or chips and 1 tbs coconut oil) in a microwave for about 1 minute 30 seconds, stirring every 30 seconds.

Dip pretzels in melted chocolate, covering half of each pretzel.

Lay pretzels out on parchment paper on baking sheets.

Sprinkle with sprinkles.

Freeze pretzels in freezer for about 20 minutes.

Repeat the melting process with the white chocolate.

Dip the uncovered halves of the cooled pretzels in the melted white chocolate and repeat the process of laying them out on parchment paper.

Sprinkle with sprinkles.

Freeze for another 20 minutes.

Pretty, right?

  1. Hi Kaitlin!

    Great idea. Just a quick question though.. why do you add the coconut oil to the melting chocolate? Thanks!

  2. What a great idea – way to adapt the black and white cookie! 🙂

  3. I could never decide which I liked better, chocolate covered pretzels, or white chocolate covered pretzels. Now I don’t have to!

  4. Sweet chocolate + salty pretzels = YUM. Those look well worth the effort! Glad I didn’t make them though, because I’d probably devour the whole batch.

  5. ooooh look at all of those pretty little pretzels, all in a row!
    These look fun to make, I’ll have to do this on a saturday afternoon or something!

  6. Those are SO cute! I love how you used both white and semi-sweet chocolate! 🙂
