Eight Days of Hanukkah Giveaway: Day 2. Kallari Chocolate! Chocolate Covered Pretzels.


First, Happy Thanksgiving!! I hope you get to share this day (and at least one meal) with friends and/or family. I'm excited to go to my friend Laetitia's house and am bringing Italian sausage, broccoli rabe, mushroom and onion stuffing. I'm also planning on making rugelach (wish me luck!). 

Second, are you ready for Day 2 of Eight Days of Hanukkah Giveaway? Today you have a chance to win a set of Kallari chocolate. I've worked with Kallari chocolate in the past and love it in baked goods or as an afternoon pick me up. This time, I decided to make a super simple snack or dessert: Chocolate Covered Pretzels.


"Kallari is committed to community viability and economic growth, through knowledge sharing, the preservation of Kichwa cultural traditions and natural resource conservation.

Kallari (Kahl-ya-di) is the Kichwa verb that means "to begin" or "to commence". Kallari also refers to the beginning times, or how our ancestors used to live. Our effort is a new beginning to empower future generations, meanwhile remembering the traditions of our Nation."

Chocolate Covered Pretzels
Ingredients
1.76 ounce bar 72% Cacao Medium Dark Chocolate with Aji Chili, chopped
30 tiny twists pretzels
optional: ancho chile pepper
 

Directions
1. Using a double boiler, melt the chocolate. {This chocolate melted incredibly easily and was smooth and silky.}
2. Dip the tiny twist pretzels into the chocolate and place on parchment paper.
3. If you like, sprinkle the dipped tiny twist pretzels with a bit of ancho chile peppers.
4. Refrigerate for at least a few hours.


Easy, right?? These are a great treat with coffee or just when you want a light dessert. I loved the deep flavor of chocolate mixed with a bit of the heat and the saltiness of the pretzels. These last for several weeks in a refrigerator in a tightly closed container.

I love dark chocolate the most, but it keeps me from sleeping, so I eat milk chocolate more often.

As dark as possible -- at least 75% cacao. I love, love the deep, complex flavor! Yummy.

Dark chocolate! This seems way easier than I realized it was to make chocolate covered pretzels. What a nice treat!

Thanks! And they last for quite some time too. Unless you eat them all ;)
