We just love these Chocolate Pretzels with the perfect balance of salty and sweet! Also adorable when presented in cello bags and tied with pretty ribbons.
Line a baking sheet with wax paper and set aside. Place dark chocolate chips (or semi-sweet if using), peanut butter chips and shortening in microwave safe bowl and microwave on HIGH for 1 minute and stir. Continue to microwave for 15-second intervals until mixture is smooth.
Spoon mixture over 3/4 of pretzel rod and shake off excess. Working quickly, sprinkle miniature chocolate chips all over coated part of the pretzel rod. Place on prepared baking sheet. Continue until all pretzels are coated and topped with miniature chocolate chips. Place baking sheet in fridge for 30 minutes to allow coating to set. Store in a cool dry place.
