Chocolate Peppermint Dipped Pretzel Crisps

Chocolate Peppermint Dipped Pretzel Crisps

In other words, I found a super easy snack/treat that's perfect for the holidays.

This was the result of another trip to Costco that involved shopping for snacks that come in packages more than enough for one or two people. For some reason, I don't snack as much anymore. I used to always have a snack around 3 pm - 4 pm but now I make it through from lunch to dinner without much in between. Kristen and I got these Pretzel Crisps because we were feeling uninspired by everything else Costco had to offer. Pretzel Crisps, as they are named, are more crispy than regular pretzels but they seem to retain more salt. Perhaps this is due to more surface area or I haven't had pretzel type things in a while.

I remembered that Magdalen, my roommate through college, made some chocolate dipped Pretzel Crisps as Christmas gifts last year. I recall gobbling those right up but had since forgotten about them. That extra bit of saltiness triggered some memory that chocolate would be the cure, as it usually always is. Candy canes also seemed like an excellent addition. It was a lightbulb moment and voilà these Chocolate Peppermint Dipped Pretzel Crisps were born.
