Here’s a tasty treat to try for the holidays. It is super easy to make and captures that sweet and salty flavor combination. Give it a try if you’d like.
Salted Pretzel Bark
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
1/2 cup coconut oil
1 cup coconut palm sugar
1/2 bag regular pretzels or gluten free variety (use enough to generously cover the bottom of 13″ x 9″ pan.)
1 cup almonds, or other nuts such as pecans or walnuts
12 oz. bag dark chocolate chips (The higher the cacao content the better for you.)
Line a 13″ x 9″ pan with parchment paper. Cover with pretzels and then add the almonds. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and coconut oil, or use a double broiler. Add the coconut palm sugan. Stir constantly, until the mixture is melted. Do not overcook. Spread the mixture over the pretzels and nuts. Bake for 5 minutes. Remove and add the chocolate chunks. Place back in the overn for 45 seconds, or until the chips are soft. Spread with a spatula. Sprinkle with sea salt. Refrigerate until the chocolate hardens, or place in the freezer to speed the process. Cut or break in chunks to serve.
