Chocolate Covered Pretzels (Top 8 Free)

Making chocolate covered pretzels is easy, but it can be time consuming.  Dipping each pretzel individually takes some time.  I make them every year at Christmas time with pretzels and almond bark (I make a batch with just the almond bark to have white pretzels and a batch with almond bark and chocolate chips melted together to make chocolate pretzels).  But, of course, my food allergy kids can't enjoy those.

This year I decided it would be just as easy to make some allergy friendly chocolate covered pretzels for my kiddos.  I used Ener-G Wylde Gluten Free Pretzels and dipped them in a mixture of melted Enjoy Life chocolate chips (1 bag) and about 1/2 cup of  milk-free butter (I used Earth Balance Soy Free).

I usually sprinkle my chocolate covered pretzels with red, green, and white sprinkles to make them festive, but of course I couldn't do that with these since we are avoiding artificial colors.  I usually keep some Sprinkelz on hand (naturally colored sprinkles), but we were out when I made these.  So the pretzels are just plain.  The kids love them just as they are.
