Hazelnut Dipped Pretzels


  • 1 C. hazelnut spread
  • 1 Tbsp. unsalted butter, room temperature
  • ½ C. powdered sugar
  • ½ C. brown sugar, packed
  • 60 mini pretzels
  • 2 C. Rex Espresso baking chips (1 bag)


In the bowl of a stand mixer, blend together the hazelnut spread and butter.
Add the powdered sugar and brown sugar. Blend until thoroughly combined.
Roll the hazelnut butter mixture into small balls (about two tsp. each).
Sandwich a hazelnut ball in between two pretzels. Set aside. Repeat with
remaining hazelnut balls and pretzels.
Melt the Rex Espresso baking chips in a double boiler until about half of the chips are melted.
Remove from heat and continue to stir until completely melted.
Working one at a time, dip a hazelnut filled pretzel into the melted Rex
Espresso baking chips halfway to coat one side. Place the dipped pretzel onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
Repeat with remaining pretzels. Allow to cool and for the melted chips to set.
