HOW TO MAKE YOGURT-DIPPED PRETZELS
One method to make an enjoyable dessert much healthier is by utilizing yogurt as a covering instead of chocolate! This actually could not be simpler and there are simply a couple of easy actions to attaining completely layered yogurt-dipped pretzels.
- All you require to begin is yogurt and pretzels, however you might likewise include food coloring to the yogurt if you desired an enjoyable color and you can likewise embellish them with sprays. Dip each pretzel into the yogurt and put them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or foil.
- As soon as all the pretzels have actually been dipped, put the baking sheet in the freezer and freeze for one hour.
- Eliminate the pretzels from the freezer and dip each of them one more time in the yogurt. This is very important since yogurt tends to split when it solidifies so dipping them a 2nd time assists to make them look totally layered and quite. If including sprays, include them on right after dipping in the yogurt a 2nd time, prior to the yogurt has time to solidify. Then re-freeze the dipped pretzels once again for another hour, which’s it!
I utilized this technique for both the pretzel rods and the tiny pretzels included on the dessert board. They tasted SO dang great, I assure you will not even miss out on the chocolate! Do not hesitate to likewise have a look at my post on how I made yogurt-dipped strawberries!

All you require is 1 cup of plain Greek yogurt (or you might utilize a flavored yogurt, approximately you!), 1/4 cup of honey and about a 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract.

I even sprayed some pink and red sprays on top of the yogurt to make the board a lot more joyful! This dip will last approximately 3 or 4 days in the refrigerator.
