The Perfect sweet and salty treat for your valentine


These gluten-free chocolate-covered pretzels are one of my favorite gluten-free treats. 

Chocolate makes everything better right?  Its the perfect way to satisfy all of your sugar cravings!  But what if you want a salty treat too?

One of my favorite things are chocolate-dipped pretzels. There is something about the salty-sweet perfection together that is chef’s kiss !

But when you are dealing with food allergies, finding these in the store can be a challenge. I wanted my son to experience this so OF COURSE, I had to make these as a special treat.  And then we proceeded to eat the entire batch. 

Now while this recipe is gluten-free, it’s for everyone because you can always substitute regular crunchy pretzels.  But this is the perfect addition for your special gathering, an easy snack for your kid’s lunch,  Valentine’s Day, and edible gifts for any season.
