How to Store Chocolate-Covered Pretzels

By Meredith Burgio

Chocolate-covered pretzels are always a hit on the dessert table. However, after the party's over, you need to store the leftovers. Do not let them end up in the trash. Properly storing these bite-size desserts is essential to ensure they stay fresh long enough for you to enjoy them. If you are gifting chocolate-covered pretzels, packaging them correctly will prevent them from spoiling on their journey.

Fully covered chocolate-covered pretzels last longer than partially covered ones.

Step 1

Place the chocolate covered pretzels in the glass or plastic container. The container must be clean because the chocolate covered pretzels will absorb odors.

Step 2

Close the container. Make sure you use an airtight container or the chocolate covered pretzels will go stale faster.

Step 3

Place the container in a pantry or cupboard. Partially covered pretzels will stay fresh at room temperature or slightly cooler for at least several weeks. Fully covered pretzels stay fresh for several months.
