Pour the smashed pretzels into the melted chocolate and mix well. Stir in the raisins. Line a baking sheet with greaseproof paper. Spoon heaps of the pretzel mix onto the sheet, around 3cm across and 1cm high. Leave the bites to set in a cool place or put in the fridge until the chocolate has completely set.

These work really well with dried cranberries too, or try using sour cherries and swap the white for milk or dark chocolate.
