A Behind-The-Scenes Look at Fatty Sundays
Posted on October 17 2017
The Fatty Sundays story began by combining just 3 simple ingredients - salted pretzel rods, melted chocolate, and rainbow sprinkles (hint, hint: our Sprinkles pretzels). These were the chocolate covered pretzels treats our Mom used to make. Fast forward 5+ years and we’ve expanded our pretzel dipping repertoire way beyond just milk chocolate and sprinkles. We’ve gone tropical with flaky toasted coconut topping, freshened up with dark chocolate and peppermint, and made our pretzels a little more savory with sea salt and roasted almonds.
We love to demo our pretzel dipping process, which we’ve done in the past for companies like Refinery29, Business Insider, and at DC’s Union Market. We’re here to share the simple step-by-step process of dipping and decorating a Fatty Sundays pretzel. It’s fun, crumb-free, and you get to eat it your work when you’re done!
Step One: Gather plain pretzel rods. Pick out a perfect one: without any dents, and the perfect amount of salt coverage.
Step Two: Fill bowls with melted milk, white and dark chocolate. Scoop up melted chocolate with a rubber spatula and gently twirl the pretzel rod on the spatula. This way you’ll get a perfect chocolate-to-pretzel ratio that’s not too thick. Make sure to leave about half an inch at the top of the pretzel chocolate-free so there’s room for clean handling!
Step Three: Lay out bowls filled with different toppings (our 10 flavors are listed below!). Scoop the topping up with a spoon and and sprinkle the pretzel rod with it. Twirl the pretzel rod as you are covering it in topping, and make sure you don’t miss any spots!
Step Four: Repeat Steps 1-3 switching up the chocolate type and toppings each time!
When we do pretzel dipping demos we like to have fun with it and sometimes mix chocolates and toppings on each pretzel. For example, we love making black and white pretzels inspired by one of our favorite bakery treats. We’ll dip half other pretzel in white chocolate and the other half in milk chocolate. No topping needed!
