CHOCOLATE DIPPED PRETZELS
One (11 1/2 oz.) pkg. chocolate chips
One 1/4 c. Crisco
Fifty (3 inch) twisted pretzels or 1 lb. mini pretzels
Combine over hot (not boiling) water, chips and Crisco; stir until chips melt and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat but keep chocolate over hot water. Dip pretzels into chocolate and coat evenly; shake off any excess coating. Place pretzels on waxed paper-lined cookie sheets. Chill in refrigerator until coating sets (15 minutes). Gently loosen from wax paper. Serve immediately or store in refrigerator.
These are great for giving to friends and neighbors!
