Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Arrange pretzels in a single layer on a foil-lined baking sheet.

  • Place chocolate chips in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH 1 minute and 20 seconds or until melted, stirring every 30 seconds. Spoon chocolate into a snack-sized zip-top plastic bag. Snip a tiny hole in 1 corner of bag; drizzle chocolate over pretzels, and sprinkle with almonds.

  • Let stand at room temperature 4 hours or until chocolate is firm. Store in an airtight container.

Chef's Notes

Toasting almonds gives them a richer, nuttier taste. Simply spread the almonds on a baking sheet, and bake at 350° for 6 to 8 minutes. Or, place the almonds in a dry skillet, and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes or until they're toasted. Be sure to watch them carefully—they can go from toasted to burned very quickly.
