These adorable Star of David Pretzels are perfect when you don’t have a ton of time but want to make something cute and festive. They’re easy to assemble, and the kids can even help decorate. A delicious combination of sweet-and-salty makes these a fantastic snack.

These Star of David pretzels are easy to make and make great Hanukkah gifts or a Shabbat treat.

Ingredients Overview

Only three simple steps and your holiday treats are ready. Melt chocolate, dip pretzels, and sprinkle.

Chocolate: Use your favorite kind of chocolate bars or candy melts. Semi-sweet chocolate, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or white chocolate. The only rule is that you need to pick chocolate that you love to eat on its own.

Coconut oil or vegetable oil: While microwaving, adding a tablespoon of coconut oil or vegetable oil helps the chocolate melt more smoothly and makes it the perfect consistency for dipping. 

Pretzels sticks: You are going to need six sticks for each star.

Toppings: Sprinkles are a classic but feel free to be creative with crushed candy, nuts, sugar crystals, and even shredded coconut. 

How to Store Star of David Pretzels

Place them in an airtight container and store them for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator. They are also freeze well for up to 2 months.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Chill/Set Time: 1 hour
Servings: 10 stars

Ingredients

  • 60 pretzel sticks
  • About 7.56 oz (214 grams) chocolate bar/s of your choice broken into pieces I used a giant (25 pieces) Hershey Bar
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil or canola oil 
  • 1/4 cup Hanukkah sprinkles or any sprinkles of your choice

Instructions

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and set aside.
  • Place chocolate and oil in a microwave-safe bowl or a glass liquid measuring cup. Heat in 30-second intervals, stirring between each, until the chocolate is melted and smooth.
  • Dip each pretzel in the chocolate until fully coated, and tap off the excess chocolate. Repeat with five more pretzel sticks.
  • Place them on the prepared baking sheet in a Star of David shape (a triangle and then an upside-down triangle on top).
  • Add additional chocolate to the spots where the pretzels overlap to act as extra "glue" to help them stay together well.
  • Decorate with sprinkles. Sprinkles will stick to pretzels while it’s wet. You want to work faster here.
  • Repeat until the chocolate is gone. Cool at room temperature or in the fridge. Cooling in the refrigerator is recommended if the pretzels are ready quickly.
