Believe it or not Purim is March 20 this year- the clock is ticking!!!

Please send in your inspirations and ideas to share with other Jewish Hostesses!

These pretzels by Shirley are a gorgeous add-in for Mishloach Manot. Just place them in food cello  bags from HERE or  HERE and tie them with fringe cord ribbons from HERE. Of course as a second item to include in a gift basket you can simply add a bottle of grape juice or if you want to shmancy it up use a nice bottle of wine.

Shirley actually made these pretzels for an engagement party and when I saw how everyone was grabbing them to take home as a goodie for their kids -(ahem) I knew that I had to get the recipe for my Jewish Hostess readers.


I found these personalized ribbons from HERE to decorate Purim baskets.  Just order the ribbons with “Happy Purim! Love the Cohens…” written on them. It takes 2 weeks to order, so do it soon!

“Hi its Shirley from Homebaked…I’d like to share with you one of my most well received recipes, which also happens to be one of the easiest to prepare. People (old and young alike) just go crazy for the salty/crunchy/chocolaty goodness of a chocolate covered pretzel.  These little treats are the perfect way to end a meal, and the flavor combinations and toppings for the pretzels are quite limitless. Here I have posted a few of my personal favorite ideas for decorating, however, feel free to get creative…you certainly can’tt go wrong.

What You’ll Need:

  • Pretzel Rods (If the rods are big, I like to cut them in half with an knife to make a smaller pretzel. )
  • Semisweet, Milk, or white Chocolate for dipping and drizzling
  • Sprinkles such as chopped oreos, chopped nuts, mini m&ms, toffee bits, nonpareils, peanut butter chips…

To Assemble:

  1. Line a cookie sheet with wax paper.
  2. Melt the chocolate that you will be using to dip the pretzels in the microwave, in 10-second intervals (as to not burn the chocolate).
  3. Transfer the melted chocolate into a deep bowl or cup, and proceed to dip the pretzels into the chocolate, leaving just the tip of the pretzel bare. Shake of any excess chocolate back into the bowl. (If the chocolate seems to be too thick for dipping, simply use a knife to spread it evenly around the pretzel. Don’t worry about imperfections- they’ll be covered up by the sprinkles.)
  4. Immediately roll or sprinkle the pretzel with the desired topping while the chocolate is still melted, and place onto the cookie sheet.
  5. When all of the pretzels have been dipped and decorated, melt some chocolate (of a different shade) in the microwave.
  6. Transfer the melted chocolate into a sturdy ziplock bag and squeeze down until all the chocolate is in one corner of the bag.
  7. With sharp scissors, snip a tiny hole into the corner of the bag, begin to drizzle the chocolate-covered, decorated pretzels that are on the cookie sheet.
  8. Freeze the pretzels for up to a month in an airtight container.
  9. Enjoy!!

  1. So it definitely depends on the type of chocolate you used. Certain brands of “baking chocolate” bars contain shortening to thin out the chocolate – leaving it runny when it is melted. If the chocolate is too thin, it may take more time to set, and may even cause the chips and other toppings to slide off after dipping. I would try melting regular chocolate chips, and even though the melted chocolate will end up being pretty thick, you can always spread it on with a knife.
    Good luck… Hope this helps!

    These taste amazing but mine came out so sloppy! When i dipped the chocolate covered pretzel into regular sized white chocolate chips. they all slid off. eventually i rushed them to the tray for freezing, but now the back of each pretzel barely has topping and looks so flat! I’m not the best of bakers so i’m curious to now if there’s any way i could make these neater.
