This week, the 59-year-old actress posted a recipe video on Instagram of her homemade chocolate pretzel crisps. And with a three-item ingredient list, it’s an easy way to satisfy your sweet tooth.

In the video (see above), Cox revealed that she loves chocolate covered pretzels, but she’s limited in what she can consume. “These are delicious, but I don’t love milk chocolate,” she said in the clip. “And I’m gluten-free. So, I’m going to make my own version.”

The Friends alum went on to explain that you can add other ingredients—like peanut butter or cinnamon—to your liking. Cox also admitted that her technique could use some work, adding, “I’m sure there are better ways to do all of this, and I’ll try it next time. But we’re really going for the taste over function.”

Read on for the full recipe.


  • Gluten-free pretzels
  • Chocolate bar
  • Ziplock bag
  • Peanut butter (optional)


Step 1: Put chocolate in a measuring cup (or other microwave-safe container) and heat until melted.

Step 2: Arrange pretzels on a baking sheet.

Step 3: Pour melted chocolate into a Ziplock bag.

Step 4: Cut a hole in the bottom corner of the bag and use it to drizzle the chocolate over the pretzels.

Step 5 (optional): Once you’ve used half the chocolate, you can add peanut butter to the mixture and repeat steps three & four. (Cox used peanut butter on half her pretzels.)

Step 6: Place baking sheet in fridge for five minutes.

Step 7: Remove from fridge & enjoy!
