Salty. Sweet. Salty. Sweet. SALTY! SWEET! Which to choose? And which will your Valentine want? Well, with these crispy, salty, creamy (and did I mention super cute?)chocolate-dipped pretzel sticks, no one has to choose. Each part of the palate will be happy!
Now, I admit that I am not normally a sweets person. I mean, I like chocolate. I like sweet stuff in moderation. But salty? You have my full attention. What I like best about these easy little treats is that it provides the best of both worlds. And let’s face it, when you can make everyone happy, your stress subsides, and you can actually enjoy a little guilty pleasure like these salty/sweet yummies.
The very best part of these is that they are SO easy, and there are so many variations on colors, textures, flavors, shapes that you could make this a gift-giving tradition and change it up every single time. Pretzel sticks with white chocolate and red sprinkles? Valentine’s Day is taken care of! Pretzel bows with milk chocolate and green sprinkles? St. Patrick’s Day is served! Vanilla wafers with white chocolate and red sprinkles? Christmas on a plate. Heck, dark chocolate on bacon, sprinkled with cayenne (could that be foreshadowing of a recipe to come? Hmmmm…)? Well, that’s something for ANY day of the week!
So to get you started, here are some easy pretzel sticks with white AND milk chocolate, and the cookie sprinkles I had on hand. What a fun, simple, and delicious treat for that special person! #ChocolateLove continues, my friends!
