How to make chocolate dipped pretzels:
- Melt white chocolate in a medium bowl. Stir in a little shortening to help thin out the chocolate.
- Add shifted cake mix (the powder) to the chocolate. Stir until no lumps remain.
- Dip your pretzels, making sure to tap off any excess.
- Transfer to a sheet of wax paper.
- Immediately add colored sprinkles for that fun birthday cake look.
Once your dipped pretzels have set, they are ready to be eaten!
The hard candy coating makes them ideal for packaging. We frequently give these out as gifts for so many occasions. You will love the surprise cake flavor that sneaks through the sweet chocolate!
