You can almost call these health food.

Dark chocolate.

Almonds via lightly salted almond butter and camera-shy sliced almonds.

Pretzels. OK, not so much, but they don’t have any fat or artificial ingredients!

After portioning out about half of these into little candy cups, I added sliced almonds to the mixture. Yes, they’re even better!

Inspired by this recipe that floated through my Facebook newsfeed … Mmm! After the idea of using almond butter instead of peanut butter had incubated alongside the need to finish off an open bag of pretzel sticks, my double-boiler and I partnered up to bring you (and me!) this recipe.

They’re like chocolate covered pretzels, but without all the work! Win!

Ingredients
  1. 12 oz. dark chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate chips (I used Trader Joes Pound Plus bar)
  2. 1/2 c. salted smooth almond butter (I used TJ's brand again)
  3. 2 c. broken pretzel rods, 1" or less
  4. 1/2 c. to 1 c. sliced almonds, toasted if desired
Instructions
  1. Melt chocolate slowly in a double boiler or in the microwave, stirring frequently. Do not allow moisture to get into the chocolate if using a double boiler.
  2. Stir in almond butter until thoroughly combined, then stir in pretzels and almonds to coat everything.
  3. Drop by large or small spoonfuls onto any surface you'll be able to easily remove them from: waxed paper, parchment, plastic tray, etc.
  4. Chill at least 30 minutes in refrigerator or several hours at room temperature until chocolate has completely set. Store at room temperature in a covered container.

Happy stirring!
