Slow Cooker Chocolate Covered Pretzels
As you know, my favorite recipes have only a few ingredients and taste amazing. That is the case with these Chocolate Covered Pretzels with Toffee! They look gourmet when you are done with them, but you can make them right in the kitchen with your slow cooker.
I know what you’re thinking. Do I have to use my slow cooker for this? Can’t I just use a pot? The answer is, it’s totally up to you. I use a slow cooker because it is incredibly easy to burn chocolate in a pot and the slow cooker allows me more time to work in the kitchen without having to stir constantly. But if you prefer to use a pot, go for it! It’s totally your choice.
This vegetarian dessert recipe is one that you can easily make for bake sales, tea parties or any gathering that you may be having. Salty and sweet desserts will never get old (in my humble opinion), so there is always room at the table for these sweet treats!

Chocolate Covered Pretzels Recipe
1 bag milk-chocolate chips 12oz
1 cup heath/skor toffee bits
1 bag mini pretzels 16 oz
Pull out a 4- or 5-quart slow cooker. Depending on how hot your slow cooker runs, begin to heat the chocolate chips on the “warm” setting. If they’re melting too slowly after the first 10 minutes, switch the heat to low. Keep an eye on the chocolate as it burns easily if the heat is too high! Stir every few minutes.
Once your chocolate has melted, add the pretzels. Lightly begin to fold the pretzels in with the chocolate. Be careful not to stir too vigorously or you will break the pretzels. (Start with half the bag and then see how much chocolate you have left before figuring out how many more to add.)
Once everything is combined, line two baking sheets with parchment paper (or roll some out on your counter).
Using a teaspoon, begin to spoon out the chocolate covered pretzels onto the parchment paper, two at a time, and let the two pretzels stack on top of each other.
Taking the toffee bits, sprinkle a desired amount onto each pretzel bundle. Let the chocolate cool and harden before serving.
If you want the snacks to go further, only spoon one pretzel at a time onto the sheet. This will double the amount of snacks that you have available. If you choose to make double, you may need extra baking sheets and toffee bits to accommodate the extra, so have them ready! Enjoy!
