In the coming weeks, I have several events for my children's schools that have requested choco. dipped pretzels. My question is if I start making these now, can I freeze them? Also when they thaw out, will the pretzel loose it's crunch and become soggy. How far in advance can I do this? TIA for any help you can give me.

Please, is there anyone that can answer my questions? I don't want to spend or waste $ trying to do this if it isn't going to work. TIA for helping me.

I have frozen choc. covered pretzels and have had no problem with them being mushy when they thaw. The only thing is, they do lose some of their sheen. You could always buy the edible laquer, but it is about $30/can. Hope this helps.

now I don't know about freezing them I would think they would get soggy but I could be wrong it wouldn't be the first time icon_lol.gif But I do know that when I make these around the holidays ( I always add them to my cookei trays at christmas cause everyone seems to love them)I put them in air tight containers and they will last a week easy just on the counter, they may last longer I don't know never tried.HTH icon_smile.gif

When I make chocolate covered pretzels, I bag them using pretzel rod bags that I have purchased from I either use a length of ribbon to close the top or use a twist-tie. They stay fresh a long time sealed this way and look great!

I made some choc covered pretzels for the holidays and I put them in pretzel bags that I got at the craft store. I kept them in my pantry and they kept without a problem for a few weeks. I would just make sure that where ever you store them is not too warm or doesn't have any temperature changes that would melt the chocolate. HTH!
