A thin crispy, salty, pretzel topped with sweetened cream cheese, a fresh strawberry slice, a wee bit of fresh basil and artfully covered in melted chocolate. A perfect bite.
This recipe has a twinsie post —> Veggie Pretzel Bites with Basil Cream Cheese. It uses the same construction, a yummy cream cheese based spread on top of a pretzel, except this one is mixed with loads of basil and topped with thinly sliced fresh vegetables. Check it out!
Each component of this sweet snack plays an important role – salty, sweet, creamy, fresh, fruity, spicy and of course, chocolate. Combined all together, they make the perfect one bite treat. Although, if you only eat one, I will be very impressed! I could have finished off an entire tray. Maybe I did…ahem. So…
This cannot be made much in advance or stored for very long as the pretzels will start to get soft/soggy. Luckily, they are a snap to put together so you can assemble them before your party without too much trouble.
These would be an excellent way to celebrate Valentine’s Day with your special someone. Or impress that special someone with your immense culinary art skills!
