These Chocolate-Covered Pretzels Are The Perfect DIY Gift

Have a minute? That’s all it took us to get hooked on Leaf.tv, an addictive new site from content queens Erin Falconer and Geri Hirsch. Leaf.tv serves up everything from must-know kitchen lifehacks to easy-to-digest DIYs. This week, the ladies teach us how to whip up delicious chocolate covered pretzels that are perfect for the holiday season (all in just 60 seconds!).
If there's one thing better than dessert, it's dessert that's pretty enough to double as a gift. That's where these chocolate covered pretzels come in. They're sweet, salty, and bite-sized — what's not to love? This year, instead of buying them, we decided to make them ourselves, three ways! (The semi-homemade touch goes a long way.) Make a batch to keep on your table, and a batch to package up as cute gifts. Enjoy!
1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
2. Arrange pretzels
3. Melt chocolate in 30 second intervals until smooth (carefully not to burn!)
4. Drizzle dark & top with fleur de sel
5. Drizzle milk & top with chopped & sliced almonds
6. Drizzle white and top with sprinkles
7. Serve warm or let harden for 1 hour
