This recipe makes one pretzel. Of course, if you want to make more than one, you can just double (or triple, whatever you need) the recipe.
How To Make Soft Pretzel S’mores:
Make the soft pretzel according to the package.
However, skip the salt. I know, I know. Pretzel salt is amazing. But it’ll just get in your way when you’re making the rest of the recipe, so skip it.
Use a knife to spread the marshmallow creme on top of the pretzel.
Don’t worry if it’s not smooth going on. Give it a few seconds and it becomes perfectly smooth. And don’t worry if it looks ugly right now. Trust me. It doesn’t. But keep going and I promise you this will look more professional and store-bought than homemade when you’re done with it. Just keep going.
Melt the chocolate almond bark in a microwavable bowl. The easiest way to do this is to melt for 30 seconds, stir, melt an additional 30 seconds, stir again. By then it should be warm all the way through. Stir until it’s completely melted.
Put the melted chocolate almond bark in a plastic sandwich bag. Cut off the tip of one of the corners of the bag. Move the chocolate to that corner and pipe the chocolate all over the marshmallow creme on the pretzel.
Break the graham cracker into crumbs on top of the chocolate so that it gets stuck. It’s okay if you have some large pieces, but you want the majority of it to crumble.
You can either eat it right away or let the pretzel sit for at least five minutes so the marshmallow creme and chocolate almond bark cool slightly before eating. Either way, it’s delicious.
Soft Pretzel S’mores: Frequently Asked Questions
Marshmallow creme is basically the generic way of saying Marshmallow Fluff (which is a brand name). They’re made by a little bit of a different process, but the result is very similar. So, if you want to save a little bit of money, just buy the generic instead of the brand name product.
Marshmallow creme can be really sticky when you’re using it in a recipe. But, in this case, you’re not actually touching it (or, at least, you shouldn’t be).
You’re just putting the marshmallow creme on a knife, then using that knife to spread it over the pretzel. Since the pretzel is warm, it may try to slide a little if you put on too much at once. Just grab it with the knife and move it back to the top of the pretzel.
When you do that, you may notice the marshmallow creme isn’t smooth anymore, but just give it a couple seconds and it will smooth itself out.
You can make these soft pretzel s’mores a few minutes to an hour ahead of time, but we don’t recommend letting them sit any longer than that.
You definitely can’t leave them overnight, even in an airtight container.
Actually, that’s a weird phenomenon. I tried that, just to answer this question. The marshmallow creme basically melts away. It falls completely off the pretzel onto the bottom of the container. But, the weird part is that it doesn’t take any of the drizzled chocolate or graham cracker. Those stay exactly where they originally were, so it looks like the marshmallow creme just … evaporated into thin air.
It doesn’t, of course, because you can see its sticky remains below the pretzel. But. Still. It’s wild.
I love using chocolate or vanilla almond bark rather than milk or white chocolate chip, respectively. It just melts a lot easier than chocolate chips do. And it burns less easily, so it’s just easier to work with.
Plus, it tastes just like melted chocolate, so you really don’t notice a difference.
If you wanted to use chocolate chips, by all means, go ahead. Just be really careful that you don’t burn them while you’re melting them.
If you have a piping bag, you can use that to pipe the melted chocolate on top of the marshmallow creme. But, personally, I think a plastic bag works better in this recipe. You’re only using a small amount of melted chocolate almond bark, so it’s easy enough to just use a plastic bag.
You can skip the bag all together and use a fork to drizzle the chocolate on top, but taking the extra time to hand pipe it just makes the pretzel so much prettier. And if you’re like me and you really care about presentation when you’re making a recipe, then piping is the way to go.
