White chocolate pretzels are the perfect combination when you want something sweet and salty. I had a party and made a bowl of these, they were gone in a matter of minutes. These crunchy, chocolatey delights are a definite crowd pleaser. Chocolate pretzels are becoming the new gift giving trend as of 2013. Many people have been giving gift baskets filled with white, milk and dark chocolate covered pretzels in place of plain old truffles. The best thing about these scrumptious treats is that you can make them yourself. These snacks are not only easy to make but they are easy on your wallet as well.
