  • 1 package granulated fruit pectin for lower-sugar recipes
  • 4 1/2 cups granulated sugar, divided

Blueberry Chocolate-Covered Pretzels

  • 12 ounces white chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup homemade blueberry jam
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 2 cups mini pretzels

Preparation

Instructions

  1. In a large saucepan, combine blueberries and 1/2 cup water. In a small bowl, stir together pectin and 1/4 cup of the sugar; stir into blueberry mixture. Bring to a rolling boil over high heat, stirring constantly.
  2. Add remaining sugar all at once; return to a rolling boil. Boil for exactly 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; skim off any foam. Let stand for about 30 minutes or until cool enough to handle.

Blueberry Chocolate-Covered Pretzels

  1. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine white chocolate chips, 1/3 cup of the jam, and cream; microwave on Medium for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring every 20 seconds, until smooth and melted.
  2. Using 2 forks, dip pretzels in melted chocolate mixture, letting any excess drip back into the bowl. Place in a single layer on parchment paper–lined baking sheets. Refrigerate for about 1 hour or until chocolate is set and hardened.
  3. Drizzle additional melted chocolate over pretzels.

Notes

  • Remaining jam can be covered and refrigerated for up to 1 week.
  • Store pretzels in an airtight container in a cool, dry area for up to 7 days.
