Chocolatiers, chefs, and confectioners are constantly pushing the envelope when it comes to developing flavors. Some flavor combinations can elevate otherwise simple ingredients, and combining contrasting qualities in one dish can be transformative. Sweet and salty flavors go hand in hand, and chocolate covered pretzels are a classic example of this tasty concept. What makes chocolate covered pretzels so delicious? What kinds of chocolate covered pretzels are out there, and how can you enjoy them? Grab a handful of your favorite confections from Wockenfuss and keep reading to learn more!
Rich Chocolate Complements Savory Pretzels
When you think about what makes chocolate covered pretzels “work,” it really comes down to two things: taste and texture. Pretzels and chocolate are incredibly different in these two areas; pretzels are salty, crispy, and crunchy, while chocolate is smooth, rich, and sweet. When combined, the salt from the pretzels brings out a profound depth of flavor from the chocolate, and the satisfying crunch from the pretzels brings an interesting texture to the party.
