lavender chocolate pretzel rods
PREP TIME 10 mins, COOK TIME 10 mins, plus drying
5 1⁄2oz (150g) dark chocolate chips or squares
20 large, thick pretzel rods or knotted pretzels
3 tbsp dried culinary lavender
1 Melt the chocolate in a small heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, as shown in the technique below.
2 Dip two-thirds of a pretzel rod or knotted pretzel into the melted chocolate, tilting the bowl for a good coating. Carefully drip off any excess chocolate into the bowl. Continue to dip all the pretzel rods.
3 Sprinkle over the lavender sparingly and transfer the pretzel rods to a lined baking sheet to dry. You can also try topping the pretzel rods with sprinkles, crushed nuts, dried fruit, or candy pieces for a delicious alternative.
1 Put the chocolate in a small heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, making sure the bowl does not touch the water.
2 Stir occasionally with a metal spoon and remove the bowl from the saucepan as soon as the chocolate has melted.
