4. Scrape down sides of bowl and fold in flour dry ingredients from step 1.
Make Pretzels:

B. Spread chocolate sugar dough onto one sheet of puff pastry, covering completely; then roll to 3/4-inch thickness with rolling pin.
C. Place second sheet of puff pasty on top, and trim edges to keep neat.
D. Place this dough “sandwich” on a sheet pan and refrigerate for 30 min.
E. After chilling, cut dough into 3/4-inch strips.
F. Roll strips by hand and twist to form candy-cand-like appearance.
G. Form into pretzel shapes.
H. Place pretzels on baking sheet and sprinkle with coarse granulated sugar.
I. Bake in 350-degree oven for 12-15 minutes.
J. Once out of oven and cooled, dust with powdered sugar.
