Dark Chocolate Covered Protein Pretzels


Protein Pretzels Recipe

I know, I know. Pretzels are a complex food that involves yeast, flour, and dough-kneading and twisting action. Making pretzels takes skill, know-how, and time. They’re not something you make on a whim, and especially not something you make without experience or technical knowledge. That’s why most people buy pretzels instead of making them – they’re too much of a hassle to bother with. Right? Wrong. Making pretzels is easy. Well, chocolate-covered ones at least.

(I suggest you get this one if you’re in the US or this one if you’re in the UK or elsewhere in Europe). Now, the idea of making pretzels using a pretzel cutter may sound farcical to some of you in the sense that, “that ain’t no pretzel! that’s a cookie you’re making!” But I disagree with that reading of it. Let me tell you why.

Chocolate-covered pretzels are flat so you don’t need to twist them. All you need is a pretzel cutter and a good pretzel dough.

If you have that, the cutter is all you need to make really tasty – and genuinely pretzel-like – pretzels! And guess what? You can make them healthy too and pack them full of protein. It’s not wizardry, I promise. It’s protein… POW! Check this out:
