    Primal take on chocolate covered pretzels?

    Primal Fuel
    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
