How It's Made: Chocolate Filled Peppermint Pretzels

  • Published on Jun 20, 2019
  • Steve has been wanting to make chocolate filled candy canes for a long time. But since it's not winter and we're not too sure how well candy canes will sell in June we opted for a pretzel shape. The experiment went pretty well so maybe you'll be able to buy these chocolate filled peppermint pretzels near Christmas time!

    I'm sure it was mentioned somewhere but what is the significance of hammering the hook at the end of pulling the candy?

    🤢 someone please educate me why they are using FABRIC heat proof gloves. There has to be another solution, especially when just using them to add water to the rim! 🤢

    Steve & Terry must be so darn proud of Max. He's like the candy-making son they never had! They have have taught him so much, and he seems incredibly grateful & kind. Max never comes across as haughty or condescending, which makes him so likable. Plus he fits in seamlessly with the dynamics of the family. Whadda guy!

    I'm pretty sure this question has been asked and answered, but I am unable to locate it.
    Why do you hit the pulling hook with the hammer? Thank you for generously sharing your yummy videos with everyone!
    God Bless!

      It sends vibrations through the hook which loosens the candy

    Here’s a tip on twisting pretzels hold the warm candy app into a teardrop instead of pinching the ends together to make a full teardrop twist them twice and then pull them down to create the pretzel shape idk if that helped lol
