Cranberry Pretzel Bark Recipe
Serves: 10-12 Servings
  • 12 oz white chocolate chips
  • 6 oz semi-sweet chocolate
  • 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil, divided
  • ¾ cups chopped pretzels (small sticks work best)
  • ¾ cup dried cranberries
  1. The first thing you need to do is break up your pretzels. I tried chopping them up with a chopper and ended up with pretzels all over the floor. I recommend using small pretzel sticks and breaking them in to 2 or 3 pieces by hand.
  2. Have a 9" pie pan, 8x8 or 9x9 square pan handy.
  3. Using a double boiler, melt 12 oz of white chocolate chips and 2 TBSP of vegetable oil. Stir chocolate and oil mixture until it is smooth. Remove from heat and pour into a medium sized bowl. Add pretzels and cranberries to melted white chocolate and stir gently. (Note: if you do not have a double boiler you can melt your chocolate and oil mixture in the microwave or in a glass measuring cup sitting in a sauce pan filled with enough water to surround the measuring cup but not spill into it).
  4. Using a rubber spatula, spread the white chocolate/pretzel/cranberry mixture into the pan and spread evenly. Place the pan in the refrigerator until the chocolate hardens.
  5. Melt 6 oz of semi-sweet chocolate and 1 TBSP of vegetable oil in the same way that you melted the white chocolate previously. Stir until the mixture is smooth. Remove semi-sweet chocolate mixture from the heat. Using a fork, drizzle the semi-sweet chocolate mixture over the hardened white chocolate mixture until it is nicely coated. Place the pan back in the refrigerator until the semi-sweet chocolate hardens.
  6. Once the Cranberry Pretzel Bark is completely hardened, you can remove it from the refrigerator and break it up to serve. This would also make a great gift packaged in a holiday tin, gift bag or mason jar with bow. Enjoy!
