Help! the pretzels in my chocolate bars are cracking the bar when cooled

I use a thicker bar mold (3.2 ozs), so that the nuts & pretzels can settle a bit. I warm my molds, deposit, vibrate, put in cooler at 50 till released. room temp is 70 humidity 50.

The problem may be that your pretzels are not the same temperature as your liquid chocolate. Try warming them a bit with a hair dryer before depositing them. Just make sure they don't get too hot and cause your chocolate to lose its temper.
