chocolate covered pretzels

Another love – the chocolate covered pretzels from Enjou Chocolate.  These are my favorites because the chocolate is sooooo good and the pretzels are firm and fresh.  And although dipped generously, it is not overdone.  As usual, pricey – but def worth it! You can find them here.     Pin It

Taste batters. Just a little. You may have forgotten the sugar - or something else and when you taste it - you will realize and can save the cake/brownie/cookie etc!
