My kitchen tip this week is what to do with left-over chocolate. LOL That just makes me laugh & say, "Who in the world has left-over chocolate?" LOL
Well, I usually do have a teeny-tiny bit left-over dipping chocolate after I've dipped our peanut butter balls. I only had a small bit, maybe one-forth a cup. It was not enough to do much with, but way too much to just lick the pan. LOL!!!
So, the thing to do is pull out a plate full of pretzels & drizzle the chocolate over them. Don't go through the hassle of dipping each & every pretzel, just drizzle some.
I lined a cookie sheet with parchment paper & then lined the pretzels up close together & then drizzled with a spoon.
That's quite a few pretzels for just 1/4 cup of chocolate. Yummmmmmm.....here's a close-up:
Once they've hardened you can break them into 2 or 3 pretzel pieces. They looked really nice on the plate with peanut butter balls & Claire's Vanilla Nut Toffee Cookies.
You could also just add any chopped ingredient to the melted chocolate (nuts, crushed candy canes, etc...) & pour it onto some waxed paper to make a small amount of 'bark'. But I think the chocolate stretches further to drizzle the pretzels.
