I took a poll on my Facebook page yesterday. I was curious about what people preferred, sweet or salty. My husband is salty & I am definitely sweet, but the truth is I love the two mixed together the best. One of my weaknesses is for chocolate covered pretzels.
With only one week left before Easter, I have a few more days of Easter inspired fun. Tonight we made some sweet & salty Easter treats in the form of our favorite Easter pal.
Melt white chocolate in the microwave. Put the chocolate in a microwave safe dish & heat for a minute. Check it & microwave in 30 second intervals, checking to see if it is melted before each interval. Be careful not to burn.
When the chips are soft & shiny stir with a spoon.
Dip pretzel dipper sized rods into the melted chocolate & lay out on wax paper. Lay two dipped pretzels side by side to form a V shape.
With a spoon, spoon out a dollop of chocolate over the bottom in the shape of a circle. Be careful to not dribble chocolate over the top. It works best when the chocolate is smooth. Use a rubber spatula to smooth out any rough edges while chocolate is still hot.
Melt pink chocolate or in a pinch use white chocolate with just a touch of food coloring gel. Using a toothpick draw a line for the inside of the ears & add a dot for the nose.
Melt a small dish of milk or dark chocolate & add in eyes, mouth & whiskers. Let your chocolate cool & remove from the wax paper. If you have any imperfections, which I had a plenty, scrape the hardened chocolate with a knife to smooth out.
Now let’s hop on over to our main event. Welcome to week 13 of our Sunday’s Best Link-Up.
This week we’re celebrating the thaw across the country, so linkup Easter posts, crafts, recipes, gardening, decorating ideas, room makeovers, Easter tablescapes, spring cleaning and organizational tips. Blow the dust off your old posts and link those too. Don’t have posts that fit into the theme, link up whatever post you would like to share. We would love to have SEO, blogging, and parenting tips, DIY projects, homesteading, homeschooling, and your posts on life. Your linkups and giveaways are welcome too. Anything goes here, as long as it’s family friendly and you may linkup as many as you would like.
Each week your hosts will select their favorite post and it will be featured the following week. An image from your post will be used on my blog the following week with a link back to your blog.
