  • Primal take on chocolate covered pretzels?

    My wife is going along with me on this whole Primal thing, despite being on the other side of the planet. One of her favorite occasional dessert/snack foods is chocolate covered pretzels. Is there any kind of primal take on the flavor of a pretzel that we could make, and then just coat it in a good dark chocolate ourselves? Or is this just gonna have to go in the "occasional cheat" pile due to the nature of pretzels?

    I strive, even in my cheats to stay gluten free. That nasty poison has a way of setting you back!
    You could dip gluten-free pretzels in dark choc. That seems like an acceptable cheat to me!

      OMG. I thought I was the only one who wept at the sight of chocolate-covered pretzels.

      Someone out there must have a recipe for pretzels!

        I'd say find a really good dark chocolate with sea salt bar. Pretzels in themselves don't have that much flavor or anything to bring into the taste experience, imo, but the salt is key in making the chocolate covered pretzel taste good. Lindt's sea salt bar is pretty good for those who can't handle terribly dark chocolates.

          3.2.1. Paleo: Paleo Pretzels . . . well the closest thing to it
          if you are using these flours and then melt up some quality dark chocolate and dip/dry or fondue style and just dip/eat

          i probably wouldn't be able to eat these in moderation LOL

                  What about pork rinds dipped in chocolate?

                      Wife is all about dark chocolate, in fact she's been schooling me about "actual" chocolate for years now. Mark's article on chocolate the other day was great.

                      I think it's more of a textural thing than just the flavor of the salt, which we've done plenty before. I've passed along the suggestions.

                        drizzle melted dark chocolate over salted roasted almonds.

                          Then I think this serves as a great compromise. Melt some chocolate, dip the almonds in, and roll in sea salt. Should have the same effect.

                            I'm surprised nobody has mentioned chocolate dipped bacon.

                              Ok... I have to admit, the chocolate dipped pork rind got my attention.

                              BUT, I can't have the salt!

                              I've heard that the microwave pork rinds are lower salt... but I'm not sure it's possible they are low enough. Gotta be LOW for me.
