These Chocolate Covered Nutella Pretzel Bites are my new favorite thing! They are are perfect little bites of Nutella heaven! And so easy to make.
Why, oh why did it take me so long to make these? They’ve been on my list of things I want to make for a while now. I’ve seen the peanut butter versions of these a few times (find Sally’s version here) and wondered how they’d work with Nutella.
Truth is that I like peanut butter, but I’d take Nutella over peanut butter any day. It’s sweeter.
And even though I love sweet, one of the great things about these is the little bit of salt from the pretzels. It’s subtle, and yet totally compliments the pretzels and Nutella to make the perfect sweet and salty treat!
Can you tell I’m totally in love with them?
I actually made them for us to eat when we had some friends over to watch football last Saturday. They didn’t last until the end of the game.
Speaking of football – do any of you participate in fantasy football? I never have before, but this year the hubs and another couple that is good friends of ours decided that the 4 of us should compete against each other.
We got all set up to do the draft one night. The guys were armed with all their research they’d done, including printouts. They had strategies and everything.
Us ladies like football, both NFL and college, but just went off of our knowledge of football based on watching it every weekend. We didn’t bother with all the research and everything.
Of course the guys totally thought they’d dominate us.
But guess who’s in first place according to points? That’s right. ME! And us ladies are tied for first based on wins-loses.
Guess strategy doesn’t account for anything.
And making the hubs even more frustrated – I’ve completely forgotten my login info and haven’t changed my lineup for a few weeks now. Ha!
I guess I’m just better at drafting players. Or maybe it’s beginners luck. Whatever. I’m winning. I’ll take it!
But back to these amazing bites! I would eat them until I felt sick. And I pretty much did. They are that good.
I’m big on texture and the combo of crunch from the pretzel, the hardened chocolate and firm but not hard Nutella satisfies for sure.
I dipped half of mine in melted peanut butter chips and half in vanilla almond bark. I do love the combo of Nutella and peanut butter, but I didn’t have enough to dip them all. The white chocolate is awesome too.
If you want to do the peanut butter chips, I’ll warn you that even when melted, they are quite thick. You can still dip the bites in when they are nice and cold, but I figured I’d let you know. The almond bark is much thinner and easier to work with.
Either way you go, these babies rock! They’re definitely a new regular for me!
Note: I used half vanilla almond bark and half peanut butter chips for dipping my bites. Just so you know, the peanut butter chips are much thicker when melted. It may seem too thick for dipping, but it works fine as long as your bites are cool and firm.
