Bacon-Dusted Chocolate-Covered Pretzels



Large salted pretzels
1 cup dark chocolate chips
5 strips bacon, cooked & crumbled
Double boiler or a glass bowl nested within a pot of water
Parchment-lined baking sheet

Step 1


Set your stove-top to medium-low heat and use the double boiler (or glass bowl and pot of water) to slowly melt the chocolate, stirring frequently. Once the chocolate has melted, remove from heat. Carefully dip each pretzel into the chocolate and place onto the parchment-lined baking sheet.

Step 2


Allow the pretzels to cool slightly -- but not completely -- before sprinkling the bits of bacon over top. Allow to cool completely before wrapping. To speed up this process, place the baking sheet in the freezer for 10 minutes.

Boom -- you're done.
