Easter Basket Caramel Dipped Pretzels | The perfect treat for any occasion but extra special as an Easter Basket filler. The sweet and salty combination is amazing! Pack them in a can with a pop top for a fun surprise! I’ve also included TWO printable can labels.
I used Snyders pretzel sticks. They’re a little larger then most small pretzel sticks (about 3-inches). But what really makes these pretzels the bomb is the caramel and chocolate! I got my caramel and chocolate from Chocoley. They have the most amazing products. I love creating with them. I know I can count on not only fantastic flavor but the products are super easy to work with too. Plus, they always send an instruction sheet with their candy.
I followed the caramel instructions which was to dip into the caramel and refrigerate a few minutes before dipping in the chocolate and it worked perfectly.
DIP PRETZEL IN MELTED CARAMEL (follow label directions).
TAP OFF ANY EXCESS.
Once the pretzels are dipped in melted chocolate, if you decide to decorate using the drizzle method of the different chocolates you’ll need to let them harden BEFORE adding the other chocolate drizzle. If you choose to add sprinkles you’ll need to do that immediately while the chocolate is still soft.
HOW TO MAKE THE EASTER BASKET CAN FILLER:
First purchase cans that have a pop top lid. I like using cans that had fruit cocktail or peaches in them. There’s no lingering smell….plus I can make cobbler with the peaches or pack up the fruit cocktail to put in the kids lunch.
Turn the over and open the BOTTOM of the can. I find it’s easier to use a hand held can opener VS an electric but it’s up to you. Empty the contents, take off the label, wash and dry.
Remember when filling the can to fill it upside down. That means place the tops of the pretzels in first. I put mine in a cellophane party bag.
To put the lid bottom back on use packing tape.
There are two label choices or you can make your own! I HIGHLY recommend printing on card stock paper and attaching the label with shipping tape on the back on the can.
