The salty pretzel covered with the sweetness of chocolate is a classic combo that a lot of people love.
Including Mr. Knightley; they are his favorite! I made these with him in mind.
Well, it started because I bought him Caramel & Pretzel Chocolate clusters at Marks and Spencers. They were pretty damn good!
I should know I ate most of them. I figured I better make it up to him, so I had a look in my cupboard…
I had the chocolate, pretzels, and Sainsbury’s mini Cornish Fudge chunks in my cupboard. As I’m in the process of using up things in my cupboard I thought why not!
Fudge and caramel are not they same thing, but they come from the same family of sweets.
They are easy to throw together and make a tasty chocolate treat! You could also use these as an egg nest during the Easter season. Just top them with some chocolate eggs. You could also decorate with sprinkles or use candy melts for different colors. A pretty versatile treat, it’s up to you. Enjoy!
Chocolate Pretzel Fudge Bites
200g milk chocolate
50g (more or less) pretzels, smashed
100g Sainsbury’s mini Cornish Fudge chunks
Melt the chocolate using your preferred method. I melted them in a glass bowl over simmering water. Then add the smashed pretzels coating them completely before adding the fudge chunks. Mix thoroughly before spooning them into cupcake cases. I made 11 but it all depends on how you want to divide them up! Let them set before eating!
notes: Mr Knightley is my husband, see the about me page to be disappointed that I don’t explain it further. I was shopping at M&S because I had a gift card. I bought Sainsbury's mini Cornish Fudge chunks prior to knowing I would use them in this recipe!
