Soft Chocolate Pretzels

Store-bought pizza dough rolls out to make pretzels, and they get a double chocolate treatment—giving you a pretzel dessert unlike any you’ve ever had.

Ingredients List:
Flour, for dusting
1 (1-pound) package pizza dough, unbaked
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
4 cups hot water
1/4 cup baking soda
3 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt

1) Gently dust a flat working surface with flour. Roll out pizza dough; sprinkle with chocolate chips. Knead a few times to incorporate. Cover and chill 1 hour.

2) Preheat oven to 450°F. Lightly grease a large baking sheet.

3) Combine hot water and baking soda in a very large bowl; set aside.

4) Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 12 equal pieces. Roll each into a long, thin rope and twist into a pretzel; transfer to prepared baking sheet and repeat with remaining dough.

5) Combine sugar, cocoa, and salt in a small bowl to mix; set aside.

6) Dip each shaped pretzel into hot baking soda mixture, shaking off excess liquid. Replace on prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle pretzels with sugar mixture.

7) Bake until pretzels are puffed and golden, 9 to 12 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes on sheet; transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
