Sweet and salty food is dangerously good, it's just so addictive! Kettle corn is particularly lethal, I instead call it "crack corn" because it's so hard to stop eating. These little pretzels dipped in chocolate and toasted coconut definitely fall into the same "addictive" category. Easy to make and even easier to eat, they remind me a bit of samoas but with more salt and crunch. Yum!
I made a big batch because I'm taking some to work today, so scale down the recipe as needed. Makes about 10 dozen.
approx. 7 oz sweetened coconut
1. To toast coconut, preheat oven to 350 degrees and let bake for about 15-20 minutes, stirring periodically to make sure it toasts evenly. Once done, place in large bowl.
2. Melt chocolate chips using a double boiler or microwave. Be careful with your chocolate, you don't want it to seize! Here is some good info about melting chocolate.
3. Dip pretzel into melted chocolate, then into toasted coconut. Lay on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper/foil and allow to cool completely. I popped mine in the freezer to speed up that process :).
