They will come and gobble it up. December 16 is the day all chocolate lovers have been waiting for – Chocolate Covered Anything Day. Anything and everything goes. It’s also the midst of the Holiday Season.
The Holidays aren’t just about Christmas Day. There are small gatherings of friends and quiet moments with family. There are potlucks and church socials. Or at least there once were. I get that people are afraid. I can respect that. But for me, the human connection far outweighs the fear. Not passing judgment here. How we live in this post pandemic world is up to each of us. If you aren’t comfortable being around others, that’s okay. Just don’t insist I stay home as well, because I won’t. But enough of that.
With an eye toward Holiday Gatherings I thought this lovely Chocolate Dipped Wreath might be fun. When Kiddo was a kid, we use to do things like this for holidays at school. It was fun to dip the pretzel rods and let the kids do the decorating. Inspiring creativity that they could then eat was rewarding on so many levels. Kiddo still enjoys being creative in the kitchen once properly motivated.
There is something so yummy about a salty pretzel dipped in sweet chocolate. The two create a balance of flavors that dance about on the tip of your tongue. Happy Chocolate Covered Anything Day! Enjoy.
