Chocolate Bark with Pretzels

Chocolate Pretzel Bark is a simple yet satisfying treat that's perfect for satisfying your sweet tooth with a hint of savory.

Feel free to use milk or dark chocolate in this recipe. We've used chocolate candy melts in this recipe for a delicious, easy-to-make recipe. If using dark chocolate (the ingredient list will list cocoa butter and/or cocoa liquor), then the chocolate should be tempered, or the bark will remain tacky or have streaks throughout.

  • 1 pound milk or dark chocolate
  • 1 1/2 cups pretzel pieces (any size or shape)


Lay out a large sheet of parchment paper onto the counter. If the chocolate is in block form, chop the chocolate into uniform pieces. Place the chocolate candy wafers or chopped chocolate into a microwave-safe bowl.
Melt the chocolate using 20 second intervals, stirring in between to ensure the chocolate melts evenly and doesn’t scorch. Continue melting until the chocolate is fluid.

When the bark is just set, score using a pastry wheel, or allow to set up completely at room temperature before breaking into pieces.

How to Store Chocolate Pretzel Bark

Chocolate bark with pretzels can be kept at room temperature for several weeks. You can also make the candy bark up to 4 months ahead of time if you freeze the bark. For best results, place the bark candy in a candy box that is lined with plastic wrap. Wrap the entire box with plastic wrap, and then a layer of foil. Place in the freezer for up to two months. Bring the chocolate to room temperature before unwrapping the box.
