Bacon Chocolate Covered Pretzels

Bacon Chocolate Covered Pretzels 002

Ohhhh, no you don’t.

Wipe that turned up lip right off your face.

Chocolate and Bacon are totally a thing…

I swear, I saw it on the internets.

My taste testers said, the bacon flavor was not at all overpowering. Just a hint of smokiness.

They were pretty darn tasty.

Come on, be a little adventurous.

And that’s it, that’s all I got for Chocolate Covered Bacon Week.

I hope you enjoyed!

    I’ll bet these are yum-o! When I first heard about the chocolate/bacon combination I thought it sounded so strange. But I really wanted to try it. I had some chocolate covered bacon at a candy shop not too long ago, just out of curiosity, and it was really good. And now your pretzels sound so good. Thanks for a grand idea.

    These look yummy! Where did you find the pretzel rods? I want to use them to make pretzel light sabers for my son’s birthday party and I’m having trouble finding them!!

    Very interesting idea. Bacon does go well with almost anything. I have to admit it does taste fabulous. And really easy to prepare. Nice recipe.

    This is delicious and totally fun at the same time. My little nephews just can’t stop dipping the pretzels and trying to ‘catch’ more bacon tidbits.
