Melting Chocolate



  1. Melt chocolate in the microwave.  Place about 1 cup of chips in a microwave safe dish.  Microwave for 1 minute.
  2. Stir the melted chocolate.  Microwave again for 30 more seconds.  Remove from microwave and stir for about 15 to 20 seconds to completely melt chocolate.
  3. If chocolate is still not fully melted, microwave at 15 second increments, stirring in between.
  4. Dip pretzels into chocolate with fork and tap to remove excess chocolate.
  5. Place pretzel on waxed paper to dry.
  6. Add sprinkle or other toppings before melting chocolate cools.
