This recipe needs no introduction, because everyone loves a chocolate covered pretzel! If your weeks are long and you find yourself worn out by Friday, effortless concepts are the way to go! While being obsessed with all things peppermint and thinking of the next best holiday recipe, I just knew it..
We had to do vegan White Chocolate Peppermint Pretzels!
You can easily find this a ready made product on the shelf, but it’s not going to be vegan, the pretzels not organic, and lord knows water fillers etc are in the product to make it shelf stable. Bottom line, you can easily make it yourself and it’s just THAT easy!
Even as someone who is not a mint enthusiast, I find myself loving all things mint and white chocolate around this time of year. Throw in some pretzels for an added savory component and texture, and you’ve got a fab recipe!
What’s great about this recipe? Everything! It’s quick, easy, affordable, features only 4 ingredients, you can use organic unsalted pretzels, you can find the vegan white chocolate on Amazon, it can be used as a topping on countless desserts, makes for the perfect holiday treat, great for entertaining, great for gifting, and can easily be made in bulk!
If you love all things peppermint, or are searching for effortless holiday treats, you have to try this recipe for vegan White Chocolate Peppermint Pretzels
Microwave for 1 minute and 30 seconds, stirring every 20 seconds until chocolate is melted and smooth. It might take a little more or less time, depending on your microwave. The key is to not over cook the chocolate. If the texture is too thick, simply add more coconut oil 1 tsp at a time.
Dunk each pretzel crisp into the melted white chocolate, making sure the entire pretzel is coated. Use a fork to remove the pretzels from the bottom. Gently shake the fork back and forth to remove any excess chocolate.
Place the dipped pretzels on the parchment paper or wax paper and sprinkle immediately with crushed peppermints. Let the pretzels sit until the chocolate hardens. If your house is warm or if you want to speed up the process, place the baking sheet in the refrigerator. Store the chocolate covered pretzels in an airtight container on the counter or in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
