Today's recipe was inspired by Skull. The other day our roommate gave me a little tutorial on how to dip things in chocolate so I decided to use one of his favorite snacks for my first attempt.
I took the easy way out this time and just used the microwave to melt the chocolate, but was later informed by Skull that he recommends using a hotplate instead.
But, I think they turned out pretty well!
2/3 cups of chocolate chips
2 teaspoons of shortening
10-12 pretzel rods
baking cocoa for sprinkling (optional)
In the microwave, melt chocolate chips and shortening; stir until smooth. Dip pretzels in chocolate; allow excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper; let stand for 10-15 minutes.
