Tips for Making Dessert Pretzel Rods
The biggest thing to remember is that you’re going to need to give them time to set up. The chocolate will take a bit to harden so everyone will have to practice some patience during this time!
We like to try to occupy ourselves a bit and play games, go on a walk, or just put our attention on something else while this is happening. Because we’ve found out that if you stop and stare at them, they’re never going to harden in the amount of time that you want!
Don’t forget that to keep them fresh, you need to keep them stored in an airtight container as well. If not, the pretzels will lose their crispness that they have to them.
