This is one of the simplest candy recipes to make, and these chocolate covered pretzels make a sweet treat for after school snack or school lunches.


  • 2 cups (12 ounces) dairy-free chocolate chips

  • 1 tablespoon dairy-free shortening, or soy margarine

  • 1 (8-ounce) bag pretzels

Steps to Make It

  1. In a small saucepan, bring several cups of water to a boil. Line a baking sheet with parchment and set aside.

  2. Combine the chocolate and the shortening in a small heatproof bowl and set over the boiling water. (The bowl should not touch the water.) Stirring occasionally, heat until the chocolate melts completely.

  3. One at a time, drop the pretzels into the chocolate, using a fork to retrieve them and transfer them to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Repeat until all of the chocolate is used. Place the baking sheet in the refrigerator for 20 to 30 minutes, or until the chocolate is set.
