Thursday, January 5, 2017
These dipped Espresso Infused Dark Chocolate Dipped Pretzels are the perfect snack for those times when you need a treat that is not too sweet, and a little salty. The rich dark chocolate and warm espresso come together with the salty pretzels in one decadent crispy bite. You won't be able to resist!


I am back at it with the sweets you guys. I absolutely love dark chocolate [ in case you didn't notice from every chocolate recipe on TNL ]. I eat at least a square of true dark chocolate a day. I like to believe that the antioxidants outweigh the fact that it's not a vegetable. Eat all the antioxidant rich chocolate! 

[ Gluten Free ] Espresso Infused Dark Chocolate Dipped Pretzels
Prep Time: 5 min.  |  Dip Time: 10 min.  |  Set Time: 15 -20 min.  | Yields: 40 pretzels

Ingredients //

1 bag Glutino Gluten Free Pretzels Twists or pretzels of choice
2 tsp. instant espresso powder
1 bag Ghirardelli 60% Dark Chocolate baking chips [ 10 oz ]


Instructions //
Line a baking sheet with parchment and set aside.

Step 1. In a double boiler, warm chocolate until melted - about 5 minutes. Add in instant espresso powder, stirring until fully infused into chocolate.

Tip: To make your own double boiler, place a metal or heat proof glass bowl over a small pot filled with one inch of simmering water. The water should not touch the bottom of the bowl.

Step 2. Dip pretzels completely into melted chocolate - working in batches. Using a fork, or skewer, remove pretzels one at a time - shaking off excess chocolate - and place on parchment lined baking sheet. 

Step 3. Allow pretzels to set at room temperature for 15-20 minutes. Enjoy!

Tip: Sprinkle pretzels with sea salt or a touch of espresso powder - before the chocolate sets - to punch the flavor up more!


Dive into the rich, indulgence of these salty Espresso Infused Dark Chocolate Dipped Pretzels and munch your cares away. Worst fitness advice ever. This recipe is perhaps too easy. The easier the recipe the more likely I am to make it and then eat it all!

These pretzels are outrageously yummy! Every bite delivers full, rich flavor and salty sweetness. And with only three ingredients they are a snap to whip up!
