Healthy, Homemade Gifts: Chocolate Pretzels

By , SparkPeople Blogger
Know another chocolate lover? Surprise him or her with these hearty pretzels. Pretzels are a healthy snack, and when dunked in chocolate, they feel like an indulgence. Turns out they only have 167 calories and 5 grams of fat each!

Not a fan of pretzel rods? Use large sourdough pretzels, knot pretzels or even mini pretzels! Go for whole wheat if you find them. (For added fiber and protein, try some of Newman's Own Spelt or Protein pretzels.)

My co-worker Beth brought in some dark chocolate-dipped pretzel rods made by her daughters. I was going to take a photo, but I ate them way too fast.

Sweet+Salty=Bliss! Are you a fan of the chocolate/pretzel combo?
