Chocolate Covered Pretzel Recipe for Diabetes Meal Plans
This chocolate covered pretzel recipe is great for chocolate lovers without too much fat or calories.
6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
12 of 7 inch pretzel rods
5 tsps red and green sprinkles
Place chocolate chips in a large saucepan over low heat and stir frequently until melted and smooth; heat carefully to avoid scroching the chocolate.
Remove saucepan from heat. Hold one pretzel, coating all except 2 inches at one end; use the back of the spoon to spread the chocolate evenly. (Rewarm chocolate over low heat as needed).
Lightly sprinkle each pretzel rod with sprinkles. Carefully place coated pretzels in a pie plate, popping the uncoated end against the edge of the pie plate.
Chill coated pretzels in the freezer for 5 minutes, or until chocolate is set. Carefully remove from the pie plate and store in an airtight container at room temperature.
