Dipping Chocolate:


  • Dough:
    Line 3 cookie sheets or jelly roll pans with parchment paper.
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees and set racks in upper and lower thirds.
  • In a medium sized bowl whisk together the flour and baking powder.
  • In a separate bowl lightly whisk the eggs then add sugar and continue whisking until sugar appears to be well incorporated into the eggs.
  • Finally add melted butter and vanilla and continue whisking.
  • Place the dough onto a floured surface and knead lightly making sure all the ingredients have been incorporated well.
  • Separate into 1 oz pieces. Roll each piece into an 8-inch rope, then form each rope into a circle. Place cookies on each pan.
    Bake the taralli until puffed and golden, about 14 - 16 minutes. Cool on racks.
  • Dipping Chocolate:
    Melt chocolate chips and shortening using a double broiler or in the microwave.
    Then carefully dip pretzel bottoms in the melted chocolate
