What do Slow Cooker Chocolate Covered Pretzels taste like

With a delightful crunch and hint of salt from the pretzels, this recipe is just plain delicious. We love the way the dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and caramel ball flavors combine when melted to make one ooey, gooey, sweet flavor.

And then we sprinkle the toffee on top, that adds another delicious crunch and a bite of sweetness to the mix! All in all, these pretzels taste super sweet with just a hint of salt to rein it in.

What equipment do you need for Slow Cooker Chocolate Covered Pretzels

As you might have guessed from the name, we’re using a slow cooker to melt the chocolate for these pretzels! Slow cookers use less heat over longer periods of time, and that makes them a great choice for melting chocolate. But if you don’t have one of these handy pieces of kitchen equipment, you can still do this!

Without a slow cooker, you’ll just want to use a double boiler on the stovetop. That means you’ll heat up a small amount of water in one pot, and once it’s boiling place a heat-resistant bowl or pot on top in which you’ll put the chocolate and caramel. Stir regularly until fully melted!

    I made these today and I left them for 2 hours. When I went to stir it it was not completely melted and super hard to stir. My quick thinking saved it coz I added some Heavy Cream to it and a 1 1/2 tsp., Coconut Oil to it and it thinned it out perfectly. Then the Pretzels went in and it was easier to stir and mix them in. So if u make this make sure u add some Heavy Cream to it or it’ll be one big glob and won’t be smooth. Other than that it was good.

    1. Oh no! We are sorry to hear that it didn’t work as instructed. Which size slow cooker did you use and what brand of slow cooker?

        It was a roomy one and top of the line. Doesn’t matter now coz I figured how to make the recipe work by adding in a lil bit of Heavy Cream and it smoothed it out just fine, super easy to stir and mix all up.
