These chocolate covered pretzel rods are coated with semisweet chocolate, then rolled in salty everything bagel seasoning. If you are a sweet and salty fan, these tasty snacks are for you!
Do you know an odd couple? You know, two individuals that don’t seem to go together. Like when Julia Roberts married Lyle Lovett for two seconds. Or when Lisa Marie Presley and Michael Jackson got together? (And if you are younger than 35, you probably have no idea what I’m talking about).
Okay, so maybe those are bad examples because obviously those odd couples didn’t last. But this …
Everything bagel and chocolate. It might leave you scratching your head. But if you are a salty/sweet fanatic, prepare to have your mind blown.
These came about by accident (don’t you just love when that happens?). My original idea was to season half a pretzel rod with salty Everything Bagel seasoning, let that cool, then coat the other half with semi-sweet chocolate and sprinkles.
The problem was, I couldn’t get my Everything Bagel seasoning to stick. That’s when I decided to try coating the entire pretzel rod in chocolate, then roll it in my bagel seasoning laced with the chocolate sprinkles.
I was beyond pleased with the result. And you know how you always want something sweet immediately after eating something salty and vice versa? Not anymore! The salty bagel seasoning balances perfectly with the sweet chocolate.
