  1. Place pretzels into food processor bowl with knife attachment, process pretzels until finely chopped.
  2. Melt dark chocolate in bowl over hot water bath on very low heat. Note the water bath should be only 160 degrees. Stirring chocolate constantly until just melts, the chocolate should not be over 96 degrees. Remove from heat and wipe bottom of the bowl to remove and water condensation.

  6. Stir chocolate and pretzel pieces until combined.
  7. Pour chocolate and pretzel mixture onto large piece of plastic wrap.
  8. Place another piece of plastic wrap over the top of chocolate mixture and roll thin. Note you will have to pull on plastic wrap often so chocolate mixture doesn’t get hunge up onto top piece. This takes a little time but produces even thickness of chocolate mixture.
  9. Peel the top piece of plastic wrap off carefully when chocolate is almost set. Then place plastic wrap side down into bottom of pie pan. Cool in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to set solid. Note as chocolate is refrigerating make the strawberry rhubarb filling.
