Dark Chocolate Pretzel Clusters

Dark Chocolate Pretzel Clusters


4 ounces any shape thick-style salted pretzels
6 ounces dark chocolate (60% to 70% cocoa solids), chopped


Line a baking sheet with wax paper.

Put the pretzels into a sealable plastic bag and crush them with a rolling pin or mallet into about ¼-inch pieces.

Place the chocolate in the top of a double boiler set over barely simmering water. Make sure the bottom of the pan does not touch the water. Melt the chocolate, stirring frequently, about 1 minute. Remove the pan from the heat. Add the pretzel pieces to the chocolate and stir until well coated.

Scoop heaping tablespoon-size stacks of the chocolate-covered pretzel pieces onto the prepared baking sheet. Place the baking sheet in the refrigerator and allow to cool and set, about 20 minutes.

Store and serve at room temperature.
