Why You'll Love This Recipe

You will love this easy recipe for Vegan Dark Chocolate Covered Pretzels. You only need two ingredients: organic pretzels and dark chocolate. You can add a little flaky sea salt on top if you want that little extra saltiness, which is something I love!

I use Unique Snacks Organic Sprouted Pretzels for this recipe. These are one of my favorite pretzels because they are the only pretzels that use organic extra virgin olive oil instead of canola or soybean oil, which is so much better for you!

I use organic mini dark chocolate chips as they melt incredibly quick and easy. This way, I don’t have to chop chocolate, which makes these Vegan Dark Chocolate Covered Pretzels even faster to make!

How to Make Vegan Dark Chocolate Covered Pretzels

Step 1

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 

Step 2

Using a double boiler, add 80% of the mini chocolate chips and melt until it reaches 115°F on a chocolate thermometer. 

Remove from the heat and add in the remaining mini chocolate chips and stir to combine completely. Allow the chocolate to come down to 91°F.

Step 3

Dunk each pretzel into the chocolate and place on the parchment paper. I used a fork to do this so the chocolate could easily drop off. 

Continue with all the pretzels. You can coat them completely or half dip them. Drizzle extra chocolate on top of the pretzels. Sprinkle with flaky sea salt (optional).

FAQ's

Can I use another kind of pretzel?

Yes! If you want to do mini pretzels or rods, you can also use those too.

Can I use another kind of chocolate?

Yes, if you're not vegan, you can use milk chocolate or white chocolate instead!

How do you store homemade chocolate covered pretzels?

If you temper the chocolate you can store them in a cool dry place, like your pantry. But, if you don't temper the chocolate, then they are best stored in the fridge. You can even freeze them!

Why use organic ingredients in this recipe? You all know I’m a huge organic advocate, and I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why you should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good, otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else. Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones, therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. Say it with me, organic means more flavor! And not just more flavor but a more true and pure flavor. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!

So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
