Game Changing Pretzels

by jessica on January 23, 2015

The wonderful folks at Blue Diamond sent me some almonds so I could create some game changing snacks for the big game. I don’t know what this big football game is that everyone is referencing. The Packers are done for the season. Football doesn’t exist in my world until next season.

For those of you that still care about football and plan to have a party to watch not Aaron Rodgers, I have a great snack for you…

1. It’s easy (start to finish in less than 30 minutes)

2. It’s sweet (chocolate!)

3. It’s savory (wasabi and smokehouse)

I’m going to be bold and call this snack game changing because when have you ever had a wasabi white chocolate pretzel? Or how about a smoky milk chocolate pretzel?

Sweet & Savory Chocolate Pretzels:

  • 1 can of Blued Diamond Wasabi & Soy Almonds
  • 1 can of Blue Diamond Smokehouse Almonds
  • 4 oz. white chocolate
  • 4 oz. milk chocolate
  • 1 package of pretzel rods

Chop the almonds and place each flavor on its own sheet of parchment paper. Melt the chocolate in the microwave or in a double boiler. Dip pretzels in the white chocolate halfway, roll in the chopped wasabi & soy almonds, place on clean parchment to harden. Dip pretzels in the milk chocolate halfway, roll in the chopped smokehouse almonds, place on clean parchment to harden.

Go Packers!

A little brown butter for your Sunday evening

January 11, 2015

This weekend went too fast. I think having two weeks off from work spoiled me because having just two days felt like two seconds. I need more home time – more naps, more Gryff time, more time with my family. Sigh. All in all it was a good weekend though. I taught yoga, celebrated a […]

more nachos

January 5, 2015

Usually I have the standard New Year’s resolutions – lose weight, eat less junk, spend less money, blah, blah, blah. This year I’m say no thank you to all of that. While I am on a pretty restrictive diet right now, that has nothing to do with resolutions. It has everything to do with spraining […]

the year of yoga

December 31, 2014

This year could have been called the year of yoga. Yoga was the biggest part of my life this year – teacher training, actually teaching, getting a job at a studio, teaching in the parks, and nonstop talking/thinking/dreaming about yoga. Guys, it’s only just the beginning. 2015 will be the actual year of yoga. I’m […]
