I'm wanting to personalize chocolate covered pretzels for my son's Halloween party, but I've never really piped names except with frosting and I need something that will be firmier and stay put without crumbling. Can you pipe with melted chocolate or should I use something else any help would be great. Thanks so much

are you personalizing each pretzel???

i've piped with chocolate before. used a #2 tip. it turned out fine. but that was the only time and it was on a cake so i had more space to work with.

i'm guessing royal icing? with the right consistency, it will hold its shape. anoyone else have an ideas?

I would go w/ RI, but you can w/ melted chocolate (or almond bark is cheap) too (white if pretzels are milk or dark or vice versa) just make sure the pretzels are dry before piping.

When piping with melted chocolate can you just put the chocolate in the disposable icing bags?

I do, just use a tip for a cleaner piping. I use parchment too
