Pretzel Baskets
Ingredients and Supplies
  • 1 pound chocolate
  • 140 round pretzels
  • squeeze bottle
  • parchment paper or silicone mat
Melt candy coating and pour into squeeze bottle. Place one round pretzel on parchment paper or silicone mat. Squeeze melted coating from squeeze bottle into the pretzel, covering the bottom. Squeeze a bit more coating on the top edge of the pretzel. Stack another pretzel on the just-squeezed coating. With a sawtooth knife, carefully cut a third pretzel in half. Dip each end of one of the halves into the melted coating inside the first pretzel. Place the half pretzel with the ends dipped (to serve as glue) on the two stacked pretzels for a handle. Hold in place for a few seconds until set. When set, fill with mini treats. Note- If using real chocolate, spoon the tempered chocolate instead of using a squeeze bottle.
