For the chocolate base

  • 3.5 ounces dark chocolate minimum 75% cocoa (100g)
  • 3.5 ounces cream cheese (100g)
  • 1.75 ounces sugar (50g)
  • 2.1 ounces whipping cream (60ml)

For the pretzel topping

To decorate

  • white chocolate pretzels
  • white chocolate wafers


  • Slowly melt the chocolate, and set to one side to let it cool slightly
  • In a bowl, beat together the cream cheese and the caster sugar until combined
  • In a bowl, whip the cream until soft peaks have formed
  • Once the chocolate has cooled, pour it into the whipped cream and combine well, then fold in the cream cheese mixture. It should be one even colour.
  • Spoon the mixture into glasses, and smooth down with the back of a teaspoon.  Put in the fridge for at least 30minutes to set
  • Put the pretzels into a food processor and mix until you have a crumb and place into a bowl.
  • In a pan, slowly melt the butter and pour this onto the pretzel crumbs. mix well and place in the fridge until ready to serve
  • To serve, place half of the pretzel crumbs over each pot and decorate with white chocolate pretzels and wafers.


  • To make these chocolate pots gluten free, simply use gluten free pretzels.
  • If you don't have an electric whisk to whip the cream you can do it by hand, it will take about 4 minutes with some elbow grease!
  • Fold the chocolate mixture, don't stir it so that you keep as much air in the cream as possible.
  • Let the pots set for at least 30 minutes in the fridge before adding the pretzel topping.
  • The chocolate pots will keep in the fridge for two days.
