S'more Pretzel Bites

Who doesn’t love a good snack? I, for one, cannot say no to a delicious looking bite-sized morsel of goodness. However, I am not one to choose the sweets over the savory most times. I would rather have cheese, bologna and crackers instead of candy. However, every so often having a sweet snack is something I crave. That’s what happened last week. I had a great idea to make S’mores! Who doesn’t love a puffed up marshmallow with melting chocolate sandwiched between two salty pretzels? However, it’s chilly outside and we don’t have a grill yet or a fire pit to roast any mallows. Of course, that was no deterrent for a determined gal like myself. I remembered a few weeks back Nick and I toasted some marshmallows over the comfort of our fantastic gas stove! He is a great roaster of marshmallows. I am being completely serious; he made the best-roasted marshmallow I had ever had in my life. It was a bit seared on the outside but perfectly ooey and gooey on the inside. Heavenly. Seriously.

However, giving my craving some serious thought I thought maybe it was not so safe to try to toast a S’more sandwich over an opened flame in my kitchen. Come on, burning some grass or outside stuff seemed more acceptable than the possibility of burning down the house, or, maybe even worse, causing damage to our beautiful appliance. So I decided to use the microwave. Yes, I hear you gasping. She used a microwave? Yes, yes. Calm down. Take an aspirin.
They turned out great. Take a look.

Ingredients:

Recipe Adapted from Love from the Oven

  • Pretzels
  • 5 Chocolate Bars {I used Hershey Bars}
  • Marshmallows {You can use either small or large, if you use large just split in thirds}

Directions:

  • Sit the marshmallow pieces on your pretzel; add some chocolate and then microwave for a few seconds, until the marshmallow begins to rise
  • Pull them out; add the second pretzel and let set. I put mine in the refrigerator for a few minutes.
  • I stopped at this point, but you could easily submerge these little guys in melted chocolate. I tried with one of the pretzel bites but it was just too sweet for me. I know there are plenty of you out there who can handle the extra chocolate. So go ahead and cover them with melted chocolate.

Enjoy!! xoxo Mel
