Chocolate-Coconut-Flax Seed Meal covered pretzels



OK so this these FAR from nutritious, but very delicious. I wanted to make a chocolaty snack for a road trip and just made this up on the fly.

Ingredients:
  • 48 Snyder's Pretzel Snaps (obviously you can use any type of pretzel)
  • 3/4 cup of Nestle semi-sweet chocolate morsels
  • 1 Tbs 1% milk
  • shredded coconut - not much, maybe 2 Tbs?
  • flax seed meal - again not much... maybe 1 - 2 Tbs?

Directions:

  • Melt chocolate in sauce pan over low heat, stirring continuously to prevent sticking and burning.
  • Add milk and mix thoroughly.
  • Add pretzels and stir to coat. They will NOT coat completely.
  • Spread pretzels out onto a wax-paper covered cookie sheet. You might need to sort of reallocate chocolate from pretzels with a lot of chocolate to pretzels with not so much. Sort of like a culinary Robin Hood. Green hat and tights optional. ;)
  • Sprinkle coconut and flax seed meal over the pretzels*
  • Place in freezer until cooled. I left them in overnight, then put them in a bread bag (trying to reuse stuff more often!)

*One thing I would change is to add the coconut and flax seed meal to the chocolate while it's still in the saucepan, before adding the pretzels. Even though I sprinkled these on while the chocolate was still hot, most of the coconut fell off after I placed the pretzels in the bag. Even so, these are VERY delicious. Nice balance of sweet, salty and crunchy!! (And by adding the flax seed meal I feel like they are somewhat healthier!!)
