If you melt only half the chocolate, then stir in the second half off the heat, you will mimic the action of tempering. Instructions here are for melting chocolate in a double boiler; you can also use a microwave or very low oven.
|12||ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, chopped|
|1||teaspoon light corn syrup|
|48||thin standard pretzels|
1. In the top of a double boiler over simmering water, melt half the chocolate with the corn syrup.
2. Remove from the heat. Add the remaining chocolate, stirring until smooth.
3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
4. Use chopsticks, a fork, or tongs to dip the pretzels into the chocolate. Shake off the excess and place on the parchment. Set in a cool place for 30 minutes or until firm.
